Generally, the antivirus software installed contact the servers and
downloads the required files automatically. At times, due to the servers being saturated or problems cropping up with downloading the files
Maybe this is something that just happens sometimes, and I will update later when the servers are less busy?
Since I am not really doing much with the laptop anyway, I could wait, no problem. I am just alarmed if it does not happen, and I cannot find the reason.
Give me any tips please. Should I just wait for a day and try again?
Start Avira Control Center
Go to Extras ? Configuration
Where applicable: Activate the Expert mode (version 2013 or older)
Click PC Protection ? Web server ? Proxy settings
Click the option No proxy server if you do not use a proxy
Click OK to apply the configuration
How ever I have not changed that setting myself, so I am still vigilant since I don't know why before five days it did function, and now it did not. Why could that be?
