Avira is one of the big players in the antivirus sector, providing enhanced, real-time protection against viruses, Trojans, worms, backdoors and so on.

It actively monitors the computer activity in order to quickly detect malicious programs and completely annihilate threats before the system functionality is affected.

However, its efficiency depends on the virus definition information, which is periodically updated.

If automatic updates cannot be performed (for instance, Internet access is not available) or you simply want to initiate the update process manually, Avira Antivir Virus Definition File Update can help you make sure that the definition files of your Avira product are up-to-date.

Once installed, the program generates the fuse bundle archive that includes the latest antivirus engine, as well as the signature and the update control files.

The update is incremental, which means that the name of new threats are added to the existing definition list and there is no need to download an archive for each engine and definition update.

Effective malware protection is only possible with an up-to-date virus definition file.

If you have no Internet connection and Avira automatic updates cannot be performed, you are advised to manually update the signature files at least every second day, in order to ensure that your Avira product promptly detects any new threat.
