I was glad to find later that Avira was back on track, and I was, and still am, using the same computers when I returned to it (Win XP Pro SP3).
Avoid uninstalling the AVG protective software or any other antivirus tool using the Add or Remove Programs utility.
Protective tools, such as AVG, place their files deep into your system for effective functioning and all of these files are not removed by Add or Remove Programs utility.
[UPD] [INFO] Checking whether newer files are available. in fact, given this new, pathetically abbreviated forum, I'd submit Avira is TOTALLY in the DUMPSTER and in the morning I will be initiating a broadcast email to over 7000 clients to DUMP Avira and install Avast!
[UPD] [ERROR] Generation of update structure failed. Summary: ******** 2 Files downloaded 0 Files installed Same here, but my report reads differently. Curly Sue I can also add to this, glad I'm not alone.
This, after Avira successfully updated just seconds before this. seeks x VDF (which will not see the file) or n VDF (which sees the file, but does not install it). I'm a Win XP Pro SP3 user and Avira Free Antivirus won't update automatically or manually.
