Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -


I am having Windows 8 PC, 64bit with 8GB or RAM. Today I tried to download Avira Free Antivirus and attempted an install on my machine. When trying to run a scan, its giving me an error saying “Unknown error <-857735115>”. I tried uninstalling and re-installing the application but the problem still persists. I also tried restating the machine, also tried to recover the OS and no joy. Please help thanks.

First clean your system and install Avira freshly once again. Check Windows 8 compatibility from Avira support site. Once done, restart the system. After that run update and ensure that all latest patches are downloaded and updated properly in your system through Avira server site. Also ensure that you logged in as Administrator in the system. Post that you can run the scan.
