From the starting Avira has given best antivirus to the customers of its users and has always made sure that the systems and the data of the users are getting the best protection from the virus attacks and malware attacks. And the company always releases new updates and new patches so that users can enjoy all the new features in their antivirus and can protect their data and other system files from the new and updated virus which can be harmful to the system.
But sometimes it so happens that suddenly your antivirus stops updating. You are not able to update the application manually nor the automatic update updates your antivirus and in such situation, you get exposed the online threats and other viruses which can potentially harm your system and you are not able to do anything. This happens due to the RebootPending.txt file which gets stored in the installation directory of Avira permanently even after you reboot your system. And when this happens the computer reboots and expects that there will be restart but it does not happen to result in blocking the further updates. So to solve this issue the only method is to delete the RebootPending.txt file manually. If you do not want to get into the mess and just want the latest version without hampering your work then call to Avira customer care experts otherwise you can also follow the steps to solve this problem.
