Open the Disk Management console by typing diskmgmt.msc into Run dialog box, does the external hard drive recognize by the Disk Management console?
Have you tried different USB ports to connect external hard drive?
Does other USB devices work when you connect them?

Connect external drive and open Device Manager by typing Devmgmt.msc into Run dialog box, expand Disk Drives, right click the external drive and uninstall its driver after doing that reconnect the external drive.

I have completed operation and now upon restart i am getting following dialogue box message:
"The exception unknown software exception(0x40000015) ocurred in the application at location 0x00527676.
Clik on OK to terminate the program"
Pc still does not recognize the external harddrive.

By the way, when i run "diskmgmt.msc" only C and D drives are indicated.

Do you get the error message without external drive connected?
Use CrystalDiskInfo program to view SMART health report of the external hard drive.

No and I am not getting the original message anymore but am getting this one instead.: "Please insert disk into drive E"

Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology; often written as SMART is a monitoring system included in computer hard disk drives (HDDs) and solid-state drives (SSDs) that detects and reports on various indicators of drive reliability, with the intent of enabling the anticipation of hardware failures.
What is Avira doing that is strange?
