Avira install problems

  john bunyan 17:48 13 Nov 2009

On XP,SP3 was on AVG 8.5. Getting W7 as dual boot soon. Read problems with AVG9 so decided to try Avira with the intention of using it both on XP and W7. Used AVG uninstall to remove AVG - went well. Had already downloded Avira free from file Hippo. Install seemed ok but Scan stopped at 93.5%. Tried update but kept getting message "Scheduler not started" or some such. In the end uninstalled and reinstalled but same problem.Uninstalled Avira and installed MS Securty Essentials for its anti virus use, which seems ok but I would like to have tried Avira. Any views?
