Some antivirus programs do not include an update utility.If you are using such software, you should be able to download new virus definitions directly from the developers web page. May help a new installation with the latest version? As a Norton subscription customer, you deserve the most current protection available.
If you're using Windows, then you should proceed as follows: - Download the Avira Fusebundle Generator: Decompress the file: avira_fusebundlegen-win32- Open the folder: avira_fusebundlegen-win32-en - Double-click on - Wait for the Fusebundle archive to be created - a new folder "install" will be created, this is where vdf_can be located - Open Avira Manual update and add the new VDF update file (vdf_fusebundle.zip) This will trigger a forced update in the product which replaces all existing files, no matter if they are newer than those in the fusebundle archive.
If after a month's time Avira has not replaced the current files waiting in the wings with corrected versions to fix this problem, it's bye-bye-birdie.
@Steph Zeec Manual update only works with a version 14 (which was why I stated in my previous post that it worked).
I don't use a proxy and I'm on Win 7 Pro -- so are some other people who have reported this issue.
The workaround that has worked for me is to go into Control Panel-Programs and Features (on XP it was called Add/Remove Programs, same thing).
I was just contemplating doing the complete uninstall and installing a fresh, most recent setup from Avira, but I've been saved from that trouble.
