Avira Launcher broke

Threaded View
Is anyone having a problem with the Avira Launcher this morning? When I
click the Avira icon in the notification tray the launcher pops up, but
when I hover over the Free Antivirus button it says "Install" where
normally it would say "Open". Clicking "Install" does nothing, and all
the other launcher buttons appear dead.

Avira appears to be otherwise working just fine. The umbrella on the
icon is open, and when I launch Avira from the Windows Start menu it
works just fine ... says my PC is protected. I see numerous Avira
processes running in Task Manager.

And the Avira launcher on my wife's Win7 Home Premium PC seems to be
working just fine.

I'm running Win7 Pro.

Not sure what you mean by "Do you find something". If you mean did I
find something in my Avira Control Center on the Internet, I didn't even
look.

I ended up uninstalling just the Avira Launcher. When I did, the old
ragged Avira icon appeared on the notification tray (I preferred that
one anyway ... didn't really like the Launcher). Everything seems to be
working fine.

I am sure that a future Avira update will try to re-install the Avira
Launcher. If it does I will check to see if it is still broken, and if
it is I will uninstall it again.

P.S. I think an Avira update downloaded on 9/7 is what broke it. That
was the date listed on the Launcher when I uninstalled it.

Since this was posted, I have seen two computers with problems with the  
Avira Launcher "real time protection" status icon in the System Tray.  Both  
computers showed an Open Umbrella signifying that "real time protection" (  
On Access ) scanning was enabled.  Attempting to disable the "real time  
protection" failed.  Going Into Contral Panel and choosing the "Avira  
Antivirus" applet and toggling enable and disable "real time protection"  
would not change the system tray icon status.

On the first PC I removed both Avira Launcher and Avira Antivirus and  
reinstalled.  This corrected the problem.

On the second PC I only removed the Avira Launcher and that corrected the  
problem.
