Problem updating avast antivirus serch all dating and friendship websites
You will need to declare a proxy in Avira in order for the update to work.
Open Avira Control Center, go to Extras- select "Use this proxy server" and add the proxy server adress and the port number that your Internet provider gave you.
I have now tried all the suggestions, repair, modify, new installation etc but all attempts to update result in "Internet Connection Failed". i have the following response from Avira Hello, This error it is due either to a bad internet connection or to the use of a proxy.
I have wasted so much valuable time trying to find a fix to the problem. In the second case you will need to contact your Internet provider and ask him the proxy server address and the port number that he is using.
I've been using the workaround for 3 months now but in the last week or so it's become intolerable: it used to take less than a minute or so for the uninstall/modify process to stop and then restart the Avira components, after which I could update via the tray icon.
No, I most certainly will NOT "own" a problem that is not mine, so will NOT attempt to update manually.
If after a month's time Avira has not replaced the current files waiting in the wings with corrected versions to fix this problem, it's bye-bye-birdie.
So manual update does not work -- just like Curly Sue stated!
I've personally installed another antivirus software, perhaps in a few months or next year I'll try Avira again and hopefully they've fixed it by then.
Hey there, Tom, I tried your 'workaround' suggestion. Then I clicked on "Next" again to see about having Avira re-do its setup procedure.
