Avira not updating windows firewall

Okay so first off a bit of background on the system I'm running.

It's a Windows 10 machine and has the latest updates installed (Ver: 1607).

The AVG Free was the best of the lot for the free versions while far from the best for paid av products.

Some time back before giving VIPRE a try I remember taking a look at Avira along with some others which included Avast and ended up dumping all of them! Malwarebytes came nowhere near to what I was finding when giving VIPRE the 30 day free trial a go! ago by a mechanical engineer who has also done work for MS at times when getting into discussions with a Symantec security analyst and gave the 30 day trial a go.

The 2016 version is now available as well as seeing top ratings. However, if you're willing to pay, I might suggest using Defender with Malwarebytes premium. With VIPRE on you don't need anything else but common sense for the most part not to be clicking on the wrong things like fake wares trying to get you to pay for a fake program or flagging new freewares you might download with an option for a Yahoo or Google toolbar you don't want!

Today i have installed Avira anti-virus on a laptop from a friend. After installing the update should be started however it did NOT.

Manually started to update however after a few seconds later Internet Explorer starts with the error page and tells me that there are connections problems (using the local error page from Avira). Disable the Firewall and try again or do i need to adjust the firewall settings. Or try the Offline download from Avira and use this one (which should adjust Firewall settings according some people).

While no software is even 100% picking one that offers multiple layers of protection is the best move.

Firewall protection with options note not lacking options along with web filtering will tend to keep more garbage off then the need to see more removed to begin with!When I mentioned earlier about going to open a folder where a download went the firewall was kicking in without a ton of user prompts but the alert on a trojan found.Those would turn out to be Yahoo or Google toolbar options being blocked.I am not using any proxies, and the rest of the Internet works perfectly.
