A defective antivirus update that has been downloaded millions of times is bringing Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 computers to a screeching halt across the world, according to user reports (1, 2).
However, its efficiency depends on the virus definition information, which is periodically updated.
If automatic updates cannot be performed (for instance, Internet access is not available) or you simply want to initiate the update process manually, Avira Antivir Virus Definition File Update can help you make sure that the definition files of your Avira product are up-to-date.
In other words, almost every executable file is being falsely detected by this update.
The good news is that the free edition (Avira Anti Vir Personal) does not include Pro Activ, so it is not affected.
