You can easily test if the mappings are correct by pinging personal.and it should resolve to the new IP address.
Previously Avira had two versions of the antivirus which were the Personal (free) and Premium (paid) but now they’ve replaced the Premium with Pro.
One of the restrictions that the personal version had was it cannot download the latest program updates and virus definitions from Avira’s fast premium servers which are only available to their paid premium subscribers.
try the following step, assuming you already have a previous avira VDF files, extra files IVDF then copy all the files and then paste the file to a previous VDF file.
i have downloaded the file, but whenever i update it manually the update screen is coming but the update process is not running there is the showing following message while module downloadded AVSCLPR.
You should see a connection to the source IP as the one that is the same as in HOSTS file.
As you can see from the screenshot above, I’ve successfully connected to a different Avira update server that I prefer (18.104.22.168) rather than relying on their DNS server to tell my computer which server I should be connected to.
Type “ping personal.avira-update.com” and press enter. Take note of the IP address because that is the CDN server which the Avira Antivirus installed on your system connects to in order to obtain updates.3.
Now visit to ping personal.from multiple locations worldwide to reveal the different Avira update servers.4.
