The virtual machine 'debian' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1 (0x1).  More details may be available in '....\VirtualBox VMs\debian\Logs\VBoxHardening.log'.

Meanwhile, the solution that I am proposing to you is to simply disable the avipbb driver.

In order to disable avipbb driver, the following procedure can be followed:

• Open Avira configuration and go to General -> Security.

• Disable product protection options (all three).

• Press Ok button to save configuration.

• Press Start->Settings-> Control Panel->System.

• Start "Device Manager" in the tab "Hardware".

• In "View" menu activate the option "Show hidden devices".

• Now select the node "Non-plug and play drivers".

• Right-click on the driver "avipbb" and select "Properties".

• In tab "Driver" select the option "Disabled" and click OK.

• Close all and reboot.

After these manipulations, it is possible that the Mail Protection and Web Protection services will cease to function. Just in case it`s happening, do not worry and rest assured that your computer's security is in no way being jeopardized; the Real-Time Protection will continue to protect you by scanning any files.

...just found that at Avira they are already working on a fix (already pushed out for testing with a beta).
So I'm quite confident that it will be systematically fixed soon.
Please ignore the following :oops:
I had exactly the same problem, and the steps here described fixed the issue (thank you very much scialo :) ).
As predicted by scialo now my Avira Antivirus is complaining that "Internet Protection" is not active, and the umbrella in the tray is closed.
I am a little bit "resisting" from deprecating Avira mainly for 3 reasons:
1. I have a paid license till 2018
2. I never got one infection over the last 11 years
3. this is the first problem in 11 years
