Avira AntiVir Personal update failing solution

I’ve noticed the update failing more often for about a month … googling it mentioned that it was due to Avira’s server being overwhelmed.  So I was patient, updated manually each time, but it just became too tedious — tried this command, too, after reading it from a moderator in a thread in the Avira forum that didn’t work either:

“C:\Program Files\Avira\AntiVir Desktop\update.exe” /DM=”0″ /NOMESSAGEBOX /receivetimeout=120

Finally, I found this command that worked, so sharing it for other’s benefit:

“C:\Program Files\Avira\AntiVir Desktop\update.exe” /DM=”0″ “/NOMESSAGEBOX”

Hope that helps.
