Hi STELLARIOT,

first try this:

Open the Main-Program of AntiVir and click configuration.
Make sure the expert mode is active.
Open the menu items general-->Update-->web server-->Proxy

which point is elected?
If not selected, change to "dont use a proxy".

Please also delete the content of the folder C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Avira\AntiVir Desktop\TEMP\

second, are u running an external firewall (like ZoneAlarm or Sunbelt) on ur system?
If yes delete in your Firewall all Rules for AntiVir and restart your system!
Please pay attention to rules starting with A (AntiVir), P (Productupdate) and U (Update/Updater)
