Web Protection Failure ~ another solution?
Hi There,
I also recently suffered from this annoying problem and searched and tried all the recommendations until I got to the re-installing Avira one.
At that point I recalled that in the past some software only liked working with Microsoft's browser..... I was using Firefox.... I wonder....
So I dug about and found the defunct basic version of Windows Explorer, and there was an non-active Avira Toolbar.
Once it was activated, hey-presto!
Web Protection now active through out and on my Browser of choice also.

I can only conclude that in one of the recent Avira updates somebody somewhere slipped up, maybe regressed slightly??

Hope this an easy solution for Anyone else having a problem
