Antivirus Avira running with my PC throws an error message

Asked By 50 points N/A Posted on -

Hi experts,

My current antivirus Avira running with my PC is throwing an error message. It directs to reinstall the said program. So I think, I need to reboot my system, but I cannot advance leaving antivirus protection.


avcenter.exe – Bad Image
CTL32.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains
an error. Try installing the program again using the original
installation media or contact your system administrator or the
software vendor for support.

Anyone has any idea to solve this problem?

Please help me.

Thanks a lot.

Hi Linda Nelson,

I think I can solve your error here, it is usually as a result of a bad image or a bug, with a proper scan, you can get the bug fixed! You need to have the latest definitions of the anti-virus in order to be able to remove the bug.

Reboot the computer and wait for sometime and restart. This will remove it temporarily but cleaning the system with an updated anti-virus can remove the virus permanently. You also need to update definitions. It should solve the error.

You can also try uninstalling Ad aware(Spyware scanner) and restart the system

The antivirus needs to be updated and do a thorough scan. This will remove the error temporary if not permanently

 I hope this solves your query
