Hi,

Avira 12 can't be installed on XP SP2 32 bit.

Quoted

Windows XP SP3 (32 bit),
Windows XP SP2 (64 bit)
Windows Vista SP1 (32 bit and 64 bit)
Windows 7 (32 bit and 64 bit)

XP SP2 is not supported anymore even by Microsoft and your system is very vulnerable.

You can use an older version of Avira. I have XP Pro SP2 also and I have no intention of installing SP3.

I use Avira 8 on this computer. But you can also use versions 9 or 10. They do not require SP3. The older versions get VDF and engine updates same as 2012 version. Versions 8 and 9 are no longer supported by Avira so no official help if you have a problem but usually someone here, or in another security forum, will help you. Avira 8 and 9 are available here. The current license is good through December 31, 2012.

There should be a new license available by mid December. Avira is designed to update the key automatically. But if that doesn't happen by mid December,
you can try doing a manual Product Update and if that doesn't fetch it, you can download the license directly from Avira website (support area for the free version and the key will say it is for 2012 but can used on previous versions) and install hbedv.key manually in the C:\Program Files\Avira\AntiVir PersonalEdition Classic folder. First rename the one in there to hbedv.key.backup. Then just grab the key from where you downloaded it and let your mouse drop it in the Avira folder.
