Title: DNS issues with Avast
Post by: john32828 on March 15, 2020, 04:09:17 AM
I installed avast premium and started having internet connections issues right away. I get dns_probe_finished_no_internet I went through all of the standard troublshooting and updating drivers but nothing helped. The problem comes and goes every few minutes. Uninstalling Avast resolves the problem. I reinstalled and the problem is back. I cannot upload a support file because it fails due to the connection issues. This is the only system on the network having problems so it is not a provider issue.
OS is Win10 fresh install,

OK, see if it helps to disable Real Site in Avast. (Reboot afterwards)

No difference. At this point I have uninstalled it again and have another product installed that is working fine. I will see if I can utilize this on my laptop to take advantage of the subscription I have bought.
