I don’t know your operating system or whether or not you are only using the firewall not the anti-virus feature and presume you are using Avira Antiv-Vir Personal.
I have WinXP SP3 and Comodo firewall only and to get Avira working properly on updates it was necessary to ensure two files were designated as Trusted Applications. They both reside in your Avira program folder and are named update.exe and avnotify .exe.
Delete your existing entry in Network Security Policy and replace with these two trusted applications.
Try deleting all you see at
FIREWALL [Network Security Policy] as well as in the DEFENSE+ [Network Security Policy] after deleting it all, swith to TRAINING MODE both Firewall and Defense+ then update your Avira. If Updates succeed, you can now switch back to your previous settings and soft reset your PC buy restarting.
for me CIS [Comodo AV alone] is the best. I followed Comodo for a couple of years I found out that CIS is The Best ever Layered Protection I ever had… well AVIRA and AVAST is also good but… It slows down my Internet browsing and speed as well as Pc booting performance [proven by my Co-Pc Technician] If I were you, install CIS for a better layered protection.
I didn’t say CIS Boost PC performance I said AVIRA or AVAST “SLOWS DOWN MY [OUR] PC PERFORMANCE and INTERNET SPEED” I used CIS for a MATCHED Layered Protection and for US, using a Different Brand of anti-malware is running a Car with FERRARI Engine with a MERCEDES-BENZ Transmission and a BMW Gear Box. so which is Best, a MATCHED Leyered Protection, or a Assembled Layered Protection?
When we troubleshot 2G and 3G CELL SITES, we turned-off AVIRA or AVAST because our Software in laptops takes time to access the equipment that’s why I share CIS and we found out that it works light specially on a Single Core Processor with a minimum ram. Well AVIRA is my second choice.
We don’t have to disable any of the CIS feature to access the modules of Cell Sites that we troubleshot, we simple installed CIS-AV alone with DEF+ [DEF+ is OFF during Access of the Cell Site Module and TURNED-ON if we Set our IP to OBTAIN to connect the Internet]
