  1. I couldn't update for a few days so decided to start searching for a solution. It turns out that for some reason I was always being redirected from their servers and it was not by my host file. Anyways somebody through Avira had posted a solution and it worked. Just wanted to see if anybody has any ideas what could cause this.

    This is where their update servers are being redirected to (IP Address: )

    And here is the fix


    Now updates work

    Edit: from what I have seen it looks like the DNS cache may be corrupt

    here is what i could find about it on google

    that resolve to are simply domains that
    have expired with Network Solutions.
