I found a good posting on the Anti Vir forum that described how to get the updates for both programs to work. You can manually remove the virus by navigating to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version\Drivers32 and then deleting the key that has a “..” in the value. As new threats emerge, Symantec immediately builds new protection updates and makes them available for download on a subscription basis. Choosing the right definition set To choose the correct definition set, you need to know the product name and version, and whether the operating system is a 32-bit or 64-bit version.Their installation will be automatic, by means of a Windows Installer.Even though viruses have now grown very numerous, one thing hasn't changed: our commitment to provide you with all-round protection.Grif I don,t know what happened but these past 2 days, I have been having problems with updating AVIRA.

I have been using Avira Antivir free edition for some time now with no problems. I tried to manually update several times to no avail.After an unusually long time it just hangs and then I get an error message. I even went to their web site and read the forums there and found out this is an ongoing problem with their update servers. I use to consider this software an excellent free anti-virus program but no more.I use to use AVG and if this problem persists I'm going to try the new version that is out.Hi, *plz perform such actions using the Admin rights.Meantime, make sure your Internet connection is good.

Anyone can help/..specific situation.types of operating systems you're trying to install Avira on, or the makes and models of the computers, or the exact VERSION of Avira you're attempting to use.. Instead of updating try the old way of removal then installing the latest. It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and replying to it will serve no purpose.
