BUt atm its good again, I installed the program and then it wouldnt update, so I did the first one manually and now the program updates every day. thank you very much, the setting with the proxy-server worked. Even after the major update that gave a lotta people problems I had no problems with avira updating.
I had proxy server activated in IE (internet options) and in the avtivir update settings. dont know why it was activated, never used a proxy.

It seems that Avira hasn't managed to tackle the Pro Activ problem in the short term completely disabling the module is, therefore, a plausible emergency measure.
