    I downloaded Avira AntiVir personal adition last year and it is now out of date so i reinstalled it after uninstalling it and a security alert keeps popping up at the bottom right of my computer telling me that avira antivir is out of date.
    Why is this happening?
    :confused:

    Hi some Av can be a pain to uninstall.
    Remove from Add-remove programs>delete files and folders for Avira AntiVir.
    Then try reinstalling.
