I have a new, clean install of WinXP SP3, and I use Avast Pro 6.0.1289 paid version. Problem is - with Network Shield active i can`t connect to any website (Firefox 8.0.1), but i can ping those websites with cmd/ping.
Additionally in windows log shows some DHCP 1000,1003 and 2505 errors. Only when Shield is active.
WinXP, Firefox and Avast are only 3 programs installed on my pc. I have checked other network cards, and it doesn`t change anything. When shield is deactivated everything works fine, but... what is the point of paying for program if you cant use all it`s features?
