    Avira 12 not (fully) compatible with Windows 8


    the new version of avira has some issues on my end

    A) it says its out of date, so you update..just to be told its up to date?? ,

    B) it reports there is a problem and a service isnt running , fix problem starts the update (see above)

    C) it doesnt report too windows its installed and running so Action Center reports no AV installed etc.


    can anyone else confirm this or is just a corrupt install?

    I just installed Windows 8 Preview and discovered that AIS 12 will not update. It keeps giving me popup messages saying that the database is outdated. When I do an update, it says that update was successful, but it doesn't download and new files, or update anything. So, I am going back to Win 7.

    I also noticed that Avira seems to not be compatible with windows 8 yet. So i'm using AVAST at the moment instead. I say wait for some type of conformation from Avira saying that they got full compatibility in windows 8.
