After installing Avira Free Antivirus, when you open its Avira Control Center, its status view might show an error: ‘Your computer is not secure! A Service is not working correctly’ and offers the ‘Fix problem‘ button. And ‘Last update’ under ‘PC Protection’ section shows ‘Not performed’ or that day’s date.

When you click on ‘Fix Problem’, ‘Restore Protection’ dialog pops up and suggests you to ‘Perform Update’, when you click OK, nothing happens or Updater dialog shows Status as ‘Program is up to date. You now have optimal protection’, but the status still shows computer is not secure, which drives you crazy.
