I really can't figure out what's wrong with my avira because after i click start update the dialog will say status:scanning for updates but only the time moves and then after a few minutes the status will say: error in file download. I repeated the process many times and I still can't update my version. Please help me on what to I have to do.

Try this 1.

Make sure that proxy server is not selected.

Right click on the "Internet Explorer" icon --> Click on "Properties" ---> Click on

"Connections" tab --> Click on "LAN Settings" button. In that window uncheck all

the options, if you notice any option selected.

Also check your firewall.

Good Luck
