Avira antivir not updating automatically dating man two
Ah, found this: Generally, the antivirus software installed contact the servers and downloads the required files automatically.
At times, due to the servers being saturated or problems cropping up with downloading the files Maybe this is something that just happens sometimes, and I will update later when the servers are less busy?
Safe mode would be something else to try tho if needed. Likely unrelated to the issue, but Avira has had problem with overloaded servers past day or two, so the updates take very long to come in.
Yesterday it tried connecting to several update servers for about 10 minutes. Yes, probably unrelated since the original post is kind of old.
I cannot update Avira, even when I disactivate the firewall Avira Free Antivirus Updater : The update failed! Last time I switched on the ***** thing was 5 days ago, and then it updated.

Today, I DLed and installed PC Tools' Antivirus, but it told me the same damn thing again: 'The virus database could not be downloaded.
Once the old files are set aside, unpack the archive and the restart or reload the product.
You can also use our free Avira update tool to perform an Avira manual update.
This utility creates an archive (fuse bundle) containing the latest engine, the Avira VDF update files and the corresponding Avira antivirus update control files (info.gz).
But it's solution is still a good idea--schedule updates when server traffic is low in Germany/Europe.
I have mine set for 9 PM Central time (GMT -6), which is about 3 AM in Germany, and have not had a problem with crowded servers.
Use their registry cleanup tool after a normal uninstall.
