Avira Antimir Virus Definitions

Avira Antivir Virus Definition File Update comes with a simple solution for helping you manually update the virus signature information files of Avira products. All major antivirus software solutions feature automatic definition updates, in order to make sure that you get the latest virus definitions and stay protected against new threats.

Therefore, users don't need to worry about the reliability of their security software. However, manual update is sometimes necessary, for instance if no Internet connection is available.

The AntiVir Personal Edition offers the effective protection against computer viruses for the individual and private use on a single PC-workstation. In order to make possible an easy operation, the AntiVir Personal Edition is developed to the essential points.

How to update the Avira Antivirus:

  • Connect the data carrier to the computer without internet access
  • Open the "Avira Control Center" via the Avira icon in the taskbar
  • Click in the menu bar Update → Manual update, select the vdf_fusebundle.zip file from the connected data carrier and click Open
  • Avira Antivirus updates automatically the latest virus definitions

Deleting the RebootPending.txt file allows the Avia antivirus to perform automatic updates as expected.

  • Click the Avira icon in the system tray to open the Avira user interface.
  • Click Security in the left menu.
  • Click the module Protection options.
  • Click the settings icon of the System protection.
  • Click General → Security.
  • Disable the option Protect files and registry entries from manipulation.

  • Confirm the change by clicking Apply and OK.
  • Delete the RebootPending.txt file from the following Avira Directory:

Windows 10:C:\ProgramData\Avira\Antivirus\CONFIG\RebootPending.txt
Windows 8/8.1:C:\ProgramData\Avira\Antivirus\CONFIG\RebootPending.txt
Windows 7:C:\ProgramData\Avira\AntiVir Desktop\CONFIG\RebootPending.txt

If the "Application Data" or "ProgramData" folder is not visible, activate the option “Show hidden files, folders and drives” in File explorer.

  • Go back to Avira and re-enable the option “Protect files and registry entries from manipulation”.
  • Confirm the change by clicking Apply and OK.

Quickly generates the fuse bundle

Once installed, the program generates the fuse bundle archive that includes the latest antivirus engine, as well as the signature and the update control files. The update is incremental, which means that the name of new threats are added to the existing definition list and there is no need to download an archive for each engine and definition update.

Effective malware protection is only possible with an up-to-date virus definition file. If you have no Internet connection and Avira automatic updates cannot be performed, you are advised to manually update the signature files at least every second day, in order to ensure that your Avira product promptly detects any new threat.
