Avira antivir not updating automatically
Update AVIRA Desktop for Windows with latest virus definitions and scan engine, helping you to stay protected even when you do not access the Internet on a daily basis.
This is an easy-to-use update package, which wraps up the update files for the scan engine and the virus definitions file.
Use their registry cleanup tool after a normal uninstall.
What antivirus and what antimalware do you have installed and what comes up when you run a scan with them? If you're running Anti Vir, a third possibility is that you need to properly uninstall it to fix this problem.
I didn't have problems with the updater til upgrading to version nine, which seems to have a bug.
I didn't find anyone with the exact same problem as me--which was that the updater was telling me I was up to date because there were no updates to be had when it checked, which wasn't true, and the notifier was buggin me to update because the status showed I was behind on updates--but the reinstall fixed it.
