I used the activation code from my new Avira Internet Security 2012 to upgrade my Premium 2012. Now that I have Internet Security 2012, I tried to run my firewall. However, the firewall isn’t working and grayed out on my system bar.
Removing everything and reinstallation while in Safe Mode doesn’t resolve this issue. I also have a Visual Studio debugger which automatically loads all errors which you can see on the picture I pasted.
It’s the only firewall I have with my Windows XP SP3. I never knew Avira has errors like this. I’m absolutely clueless with this one.

Avira Internet Security 2012 to upgrade my Premium 2012
Avira Premium antivirus has been developed with so many user interfaces. The procedure you adopted for updating Avira Internet Security 2012 to Premium 2012 was alright. You removed everything and reinstalled. But was there any problem while uninstalling the former installed Avira Internet Security 2012? Was it uninstalled successfully? If so there is no reason to through such error message. I think the error message indicates that your former installed Avira Internet Security 2012 was not installed successfully. So once again try to uninstall it. Collect a fresh copy of Premium 2012. Then install it carefully. I hope it will be ok.
I hope you understand it.
