    Uninstall the antivirus of the Avira from the PC and Restart again the PC and install again the antivirus or use another antivirus. Install another antivirus and update it firstly.

    Hi!!!
    It is necessary that you update your antivirus as new viruses and malware ara always on prowl to damage your system.
    So chances are that your system is infected by some malware which is slowing down or damaging the efficiency of your syste.
    However, avira is a good free software and you do not need to buy updates but if you have downloaded some suspicious file or your system was exposed to virus from ecternal source like pendrive or hard disk it could be infected bad.You can try buying the udate and check.
    further if things dont work out.You can reinstall the system by first backing up the data.
    FIRST THINK DO YOU THINK YOUR SYSTEM IS INFECTED OR NOT.
    iF NOT YOU CAN FURTHER TRY MANY TIPS WHICH MIGHT HELP SPEED UP YOUR SYSTEM:
    FOR EG: EMPTY RECYCLE BIN, CLEAR TEMP FILES ND COOKIES FROM YOUR BROWSER,
    TRY DISK CLEAN UP AND TRY NOT RUN MANY PROGRAM SIMULATNEOULST AS YOUR SYSTEM MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO TAKE THE LOAD.
    IF FURTHER QUERY PLEASE DO FEEL FREE TO ASK.

    you should un install this avira antivirus because it is not a quality improved anivirus
    so just uninstall it and install a good antivirus. I prefer Norton 2011, 2012, 360, internet security etc.
    Norton is a worldwide spread great antivirus.
    enjoy.

    Yes i suggest you to first uninstall the Avira antivirus,because if you still continue with it, then it will irritate you by stopping every work you do.

    Avira is not so good antivirus compared to Other antivirus in the market.

    There are many good working antivirus in markets suck as
    Avast,Kasper sky,Quick heal etc.. which work perfectly .

    Any antivirus you install will work properly until the Antivirus expiry date gets over.

    Mostly every one prefer to Use Freeware antivirus , but when we use Free ware then they protect us till they are valid once they are expired they dont recognized the virus files and your PC will be attacked by the Virus.

    So i suggest you to go for any top most Antivirus such as Avast or Kaspersky and buy a licence key so that you will be safe till it gets expire .

    Every antivirus works correctly till when it is valid ,once if the antivirus is outdated or expired it starts creating problems such as blocking you from using internet etc so prefer to use the payed anti virus than freeware ...

    Hello,
    There is an issue with Avira anti virus.
    It many a times declare your ".exe" files as virus.
    And than delete it.
    This will cause data loss.
    the best possible solution is to un install the anti virus.
    And you can install AVG .
    It is a good anti virus.

    Regards
    -Abhishek

    It is necessary that you update your antivirus as new virus and altar from malware
    always in the night watch in searching for of capture to damage your system.
    So the opportunities are that your system is infected by the way |malware| that is slow down or by damaging the efficiency of your |system|.
    However, the |avira| it is a software of the well free and needs to not buy updates but if it has flowed certainly file suspect or your system was exposed to the virus of the source as |pendrive| or it dials last it infects to him bad. You can try buy the |udate| and verification.
    Yes I suggest you to uninstall first the |antivirus| of Avira, because if you still continues with it, then will irritate you for stopping each work it does.

    Avira is to be not to so comparative with other good antivirus in the market.

    There are many |antivirus| of good work in markets sucks as Avast, Kasper fans, heals quick etcetera.. that it works perfectly.

    Each |antivirus| that you install will work correctly to date of defeat of |antivirus| it surpasses.

    Principally everyone prefers use |antivirus| of Freeware, but when we use the free objects then protect us until are valid once breathe out to him they |dont| recognized the virus file and your PC will be attacked for the virus.

    So I suggest you to be about to bring each the majority soul of the |antivirus| just as Avast or Kaspersky and buys a key of license unwillingly you are priced at except until it it gets expires.

    Each works of |antivirus| correctly until such time is valid, one time if the |antivirus| is antiquated ors to breathe out that it begins create the problems just as by blockading you of using Internet etcetera so prefer use the tax to opposed account to the virus that |freeware|...

    Friend, not only you it is every one facing problem with Avira Anti Virus. You better go for removing it form your System.

    Go to Control Panel.
    Select "Uninstall Programs".
    Select Avira Anti Virus and Right Click on it.
    Select Remove and remove it.

    Anti Virus is required to protect the System from Virus. You can Install another Anti Virus which is very Updated. You can use Avasti, Kaspersky Anti Virus in your System. Install them and they would be installed with the Licensed Key for the Updates and Upgrading.

    Sometimes Anti-Virus create serious problem of blocking some useful application.
    Either you have uncheck all those prgrams from the anti virus so that it wont block them anymore or its better to uninstall this Avira.

    You should uninstall this program and some standard ones like MCAfee , Norton .

    You can uninstall it from control panel.

    Dear friend,

    Avira is not a good antivirus and this problem happend to most of the users.Go to control panel and uninstall and sometimes the avira icon cant see on the add or remove programs list but u can see the antvirus on your pc,if this prob occured then manuualy go to C (where you have installed Avira) and go to program files and delete the Avira folder.

    I will suggest you to buy Kespersky 2012 with 1 year key .This is the best antivirus you can see the rating of this anti virus by google or if you have no money to buy antivirus you can use Avast .you will get 1 year key free from avast site registering with your mail id..

    friend
    Anti viruses in computers serve better when you keep updating them and even deleting or installing it too helps for it to work efficiently.
    AVIRA ANTI VIRUS are good for cause. Though at times it can fail to recognize and detect the malwares in some of the files.
    For this you can try reinstalling the same anti virus but I would suggest you to go for some other light weight anti virus softwares like Avast, Avg etc.
    Market is flooding with better and best softwares.
    So just install them and get rid of damaging malwares.
    good luck.

    Just restart your computer and then restart Avira.
    Then, the problem may be solved.
    Even then, if Avira don't work properly. Then I would personally recommend you to uninstall this software and install another one.
    I use AVG and it works perfectly. I am using it for 4 years.

    As, it is right that without updates, your system be not protected from latest viruses,
    and now that's why a lot of processes stopped working in your window PC.
    and hence I would suggest you to change your antivirus by uninstalling this one and download a new one with updated versions.
    There are many antivirus available in the market like "microsoft security essential" etc.
    So these antiviruses which are free to download
    bye...

    Friend its beeter if you remove that antivirus and install a new and fresh antivirus.
    If you are using Genuine copy of windows then it is best for you to use the antivirus "MICROSOFT SECURITY ESSENTIALS".
    It is a free product from microsoft and works very well on the original copy of windows.

    Re: Avira Antivirus stopping most of my Windows process? What to do? Do I have to uninstall it from my Windows PC?

    Hi,

    Yes some times the Antivirus and specifically it`s TSR modules cause the problem in processing the programmes.

    You can always uninstall the Antivirus if you haven`t tried to delete them manually.

    START>CONTROL PANEL>PROGRAMS>UNINSTALL select Avira to successfully.

    In case you have manually deleted some files , then windows uninstaller will not succeed in uninstalling and you may need a third party software to uninstall the Antivirus.

    You can download Ccleaner.exe for doing so.

    Thanks.

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say..................

    1.Firstly perform the scan of your computer.

    2.Then delete the files which are affected by virus.

    3.I hope now your computer will work fine.

    4.Even if you are facing the problem then the problem is with your Avast Antivirus.

    5.So you go to the 'Add or remove a Program' and uninstall the 'Avast Antivirus' there.

    6.If you want you can install another antivirus software's like NOD32,Kaspersky,Norton etc,.............

    That's it by doing as i said you can solve your problem.

    Have a nice day.................
