    Hey there

    Does anyone know what on earth is going on with Avira?? It hasn't updated for the last 2 days...consequently nothing running on the computer. When I click on update it just has that little blue line showing the progress on the update screen. The line is like a 1/4 inch long...and stays that way. Won't get past 7 kbytes. Aaaahh. I have 4 kids and me on this computer...A LOT.

    I have windows xp, by the way. Commodo is on here. I have run malwarebytes..nothing. Spywareblaster..nothing. Obviously no scan from avira. Superantispyware...nothing. This is getting retarded. I uninstalled and reinstalled yesterday. Still no updating. What gives!!

    Thanx for any input. Must get my ghost shaped and decorated brownies to my daughters school for the halloween party this afternoon. Eeeek. Look at the time. Gotta run. Hopefully when I get back someone will have an idea for see. See ya.

    This could be a problem with the Avira website itself. Update problems have been reported a few times lately. Check out the Avira Support Forum.

    Good afternoon

    Shut the computer off yesterday when I went out to do all those pain in the butt halloween things for the kids, go shopping, and while 1 kid is cleaning the guts out of a pumpkin right now...I decided to come here. Turned on the computer. AND GUESS WHAT!!!!! It's updating. GO FIGURE. Whoo hoo. Halloween present. Yeehaww.

    Thanx for your help phantom. Have a great halloween. Where I am, it promises to be cold and miserable. Once again, I will have the same old argument with a kid. YES, you have to wear a coat. No. This is not California. Yes. You will freeze to death if you don't wear the blasted coat.

    See ya. Have a good one.

    Honey
