What can I do in case error message "Error 7" or "Feature Control File missing" appears?

In some cases it may happen that because of a Windows system recovery the Avira uninstall routine gets damaged and the following error message appears:

Setup - Errorcode: 7

In this case it is necessary, to perform a manual uninstallation.

After you uninstalled your Avira product manually, you can install the product again.

  1. Navigate to the download page to the products for home
  2. Select your product and then click on Download
