Grif I don,t know what happened but these past 2 days, I have been having problems with updating AVIRA. I tried the resetting proxy server and manual updates, tried to get into AVIRA forum site but the thing just won't open.) Can someone help me please? Hereunder is the report on the update error: Product information: Product version: 18.104.22.1687Updater: C:\Program Files\Avira\Anti Vir Desktop.0.0.52Plugin: C:\Program Files\Avira\Anti Vir Desktop.0.0.6Temp Directory: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Avira\Anti Vir Desktop\TEMP\UPDATE\Backup folder: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Avira\Anti Vir Desktop\BACKUP\Installation Directory: C:\Program Files\Avira\Anti Vir Desktop\Updater folder: C:\Program Files\Avira\Anti Vir Desktop\App Data folder: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Avira\Anti Vir Desktop\[UPD] [INFO] Checking whether newer files are available.[UPDLIB] [ERROR] Termination of host name 'personal.avira-update.com' failed.
It tells me that an error occurred and when I do check the report, it tells me that the error has got something to do with Win INet Library..wherever and whatever that is. Error: APR does not understand this error code[UPDLIB] [ERROR] Termination of host name 'personal.avira-update.net' failed.
And after that, I didn’t bother to open Kaspersky as I was under the impression that it would automatically download the database and requires no manual intervention but I was wrong.
About 5 days ago, I found that Kaspersky isn’t updating the virus database automatically, and decided to find a fix for this issue.
It’s one of the best, if not the best, security application developers for Windows operating system.
Its antivirus and internet security products are the most popular ones and offer value for money as well.
That way you do not miss important protection upgrades.
If you are using a free version of AVG and do not want to purchase one, you can manually update the software.Delete any malware that is discovered during the scan. Wait for at least one minute and restart your computer. Choose the AVG program and click "Uninstall." Once the uninstall is complete, restart your computer. Check the box labeled "Start Automatic Updates." Set the update to run every day at a time that is best for you.This may clear any "bugs" that are keeping the AVG software from updating. Reinstall AVG through the company's website using the link in Resources. If the software asks you to restart the computer, do this now.If you suspect that a file has been incorrectly identified as malware, you can submit the file for analysis.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.
