What Avira version are you using? 8, 9 or 10?
It's possible that old version 8 and 9 haven't more updates.
I'm using version 10 and now I'm updating fine, very slow (28 KB/s) but fine.

Avira version 10. Tried 3 times for 3 hours using dialup but always get message about an 'error when downloading'. Now looking at other free antivirus programs for use, AVG, Avast and Microsoft Security Essentials. No complaints with Avira except for the downloading on dialup.

I haven't given up on Avira but I think I need a second av program to use when Avira won't update. Avira will remain my primary antivirus program.

Spanky,

take a look at Avast... personally I still use the older version (4.8) while I wait for the 5.xxx version to get to 5.1 (I don't like first releases). Works pretty good and has a small footprint. It handles things slightly differently than Avira, with shields that stop stuff before it lands on your hard drive, where Avira (If memory serves) stops it when it starts to run. Shields are the tricky part of all anti-virus programs to my mind.

Dumme Frage, warum machste nicht SP2 und SP3 drauf?
Das müllige Sicherheitszentrum kann man glaubich mit XPAntispy entsorgen.

p.s. Soll ich deine Frage übersetzen. Hier kenn ich mich nicht aus.

"isch bins" would like to know whether any of You here knows a virus program that does not have XP SPs as prerequisite. He does not want to clutter his XP with 400+X MB of surplus installs.

Technically installing the security relevant updates is sufficient.
Except that programs that sniff for SPs see this differently & waun't install. sad smiley


p.s. SP2 includes SP1. SP2 enthält SP1.

SP2 is the prerequisite for SP3. SP2 ist die Voraussetzung für SP3.

IMHO You can deactivate the clutter that come with the updates e.g. the security center.

Studies have shown that posting in your favorite open source project's forums,
along with a healthy diet, reduces your potential for chronic lameness and boredom.

Guenter,

Personally I would NOT run XP PRO without installing the service packs. Perhaps Clamwin might run without them, but I'm not sure and have no way to test myself.

If clutter and bloat is an issue, perhaps trying out Windows 98Se and Kernelex as a substitute or a dual-boot would suffice.
