This morning, I noticed that my Avira Antivirus kept hanging on "Initialising..." in the task bar, and the icon in the taskbar kept disappearing.
I've tried downloading the latest Antivirus installation file, and I've run both a "modify" and a "repair", only to find neither of those worked as they should have.
I've also checked in my Task Manager, and everything apart from Web Protection seems to be working; I tried right-clicking to start it, but it just stops itself right away. I get a message that says "The Avira Web Protection service on Local Computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs."
Do I need to uninstall and reinstall Avira because of this?
EDIT: I have tried five times with installing the repair file, and I've even gone through my regular settings to modify/fix things, but nothing has worked.
I've also tried shutting my laptop down and starting it up again after these attempted fixes, but again, nothing worked.
I can see in Task Manager that everything else is working fine, just not the Web Protection.
EDIT 2: I managed to fix the problem, but now in Task Manager, it still says Web Protection is stopped. Is that because Web Protection is under Avira Pro only? I have Avira Free Antivirus.
