Hmm, seems people post this often. See what they write.
I have been using Avira Antivir free edition for some time now with no problems. However it has not updated in three days. 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. Is anybody else having the same problem? I even went to their web site and read the forums there and found out this is an ongoing problem with their update servers. What a shame! 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.
