    Normally when you install 3rd party anti virus software, they disable WD. As you say try uninstalling Avira, check the status of WD, then reinstall Avira and check WD's status once again.

    For the most part, AV's do not play well together. I'd guess that was a fluke that they both were running at the same time.

    The exception to the above would be Malwarebytes, which plays well with almost all AV's.
