After running I found Belarc Advisor reports Avira Antivir's realtime scanning is disabled:
To clear doubts I ran DDS, it says that not only on-access scanning is disabled but its outdated as well:
AV: AntiVir Desktop *On-access scanning disabled* (Outdated)
I am running AntiVir Personal Free edition. I have updated AntiVir few hours ago. And Antivir Guard(realtime scanning) is enabled:
To see if on-access scanning is really not working. I download eicar.com from http://www.eicar.org/anti_virus_test_file.htm. AntiVit catches it as soon as the file is written to disk:
I cannot understand why Belarc and DDS are telling real-time scanning is disabled.
Please advise if I should start getting worried.
