My Avira Antivirus Real time Protection keeps turning off itself when it's running its automatic update. Is this normal or my PC is infected?

Hi, benta!


Sorry for the late reply, but anyway:


It is abnormal for Avira to misbehave as you describe, but I do not think your PC is infected.


As such, I would recommend trying to perform a repair installation, as outlined here:




Good luck! :)

That just scared me I had the same problem and I thought its because of my Internet connection, so I uninstalled it and turned the Windows Defender on.

When unexpected issues arise with anti-virus software, I generally recommend a reinstall which resolves most problems...unless the product offers a "Repair" option which you can try first. If that does not correct the issue, then an uninstall and use of the vendor's removal tool (if one is available) for performing a clean reinstall would be the next step. If there was a previous anti-virus installed, you need to ensure it has been completely removed. If not, there may be conflicts when attempting to install a new anti-virus to include it not being recognized by the Security Center.
