Title: Avast Free Antivirus
Post by: xritina_pro on July 08, 2017, 08:27:23 AM
Hello I have a problem with this software. A couple of weeks ago It suddenly stopped my Internet access.
It seemed that there was a problem with it, as i also stated that I `m no more protected.
Si I uninstalled it and installed the new version.
This worked fine for 2 weeks. Yesterday it started again to block me from internet access.
When I turn it off, I have a normal Internet access.
I run it on Windows Vista Home Premium.
Any Idea why is this happening? And Any solution please?

Thank you in advance

Known issue on Vista. It should help to disable HTTPS scanning in the web shield.
