Title: Avast Web-Shield Causing Download Errors?
Post by: Aaryav on January 16, 2016, 06:18:50 PM
Hey!

Opera Browser seems to have download errors when I switch on Avast Web-Shield. Either the download stops in between, or never moves forward.

Once I turn off the Web Shield, Everything runs smoothly. This is the case with all downloads...
 
Also, I use ZoneAlarm firewall, but that doesn't seem to cause this error.

Please help!!

I don't use Opera, so I can't speak to the specific issue. However there have been other issues with Opera and Avast.
Does the issue appear when another Browser is used?

I am using different versions of Opera and have no problem at all.

No. Only Opera seems to cause problems. Maybe there is something wrong with the browser. But the fact that switching off the avast web shield makes the browser run smooth made me think that there was something wrong with the web shield... Maybe I should switch my browser
