Avira & AVG won't update

Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, 1.862 GHz / 2038 MB
I used to have Avira with my computer, but its been 4 weeks now that it won't update. So its been 4 weeks also that I haven't scan my system. Also, last time I try to scan my computer with Avira, it won't finish, I tried twice, still the same.

Couple days ago I give free AVG a try, download it, install it and give my system a complete scan. It worked, found a "Trojan horse Generic10.VRX", but could not heal or delete it.

But then, the AVG won't update as well. I thought that's because of Avira, so I tried to uninstall Avira, without success. I open Control Panel, remove it from Add/Remove Program, it disappears from Add/Remove Program list, but the program still exist. And then, I open my Control Panel again, and there is my Avira, in the same list with Add/Remove Program, Accessibility Options, etc.

I had no idea what happen, can anyone tell me what is wrong with my computer and what should I do?

Thanks in advance.

Gee, no response yet,
anyway, I downloaded malwarebytes, perform a quick scan, and now both can update.
below is the log, if anyone would be so kind to look through it and tell me that at the moment my computer is threat-free, would be very appreciated.

by the looks of it your system is clean since all the infections are reported to be "Quarantined and deleted successfully"
