    This is what i get: a previous update requires a system reboot please do this now
    i reboot and it still shows the same message and avira doesn't automatically update.

    Don't tell me about manual update. the manual update works fine. OK? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Uninstall, reboot, run CCleaner, then reinstall the latest Avira.

    Great AV... and better than Avast. [​IMG]

    Um, really, go to Administration, the click on scheduler. After that, set it to whatever time you wan't. And don't worry about the update. It happened to me to. It's just because of the new virus definition that may need system rebooting.

    And it's so true. I used to use avast, 12 viruses won't get off. Then switched, all 12 plus more were removed. Avira has the highest detection rate at 99% while avast trails at 97%.

    Do you have CCleaner or anything else set to run or remove temp files during shutdown/startup, or do you have the notifier blocked?

    i tried without using CCleaner> A friend of mine said it's not necessary to run so i didn't get the program.
    so.... all i have to do is run CCleaner after reboot?

    I was saying that you do NOT want anything running that may be deleting your temp files upon shutdown and/or reboot. The update file is stored in a temp location and if it's being erased Avira cannot find it to finish updating.

    If you never tried CCleaner to begin with... uninstall Avira & reboot, run CCleaner using both the cleaner & registry scans, uninstall CCleaner, then reinstall Avira.
