I have now uninstalled Avast and replaced it with Avira... and I don't have any of the problems mentioned above. More importantly, Youtube videos don't stall or stutter the downloading (the video plays fine, of course - I mean "stuttering" of the download progress).

I really hope Avast fixes this, because I recommend software for many friends and family, and they all use Avast because of me. Some have purchased it as well. I would hate to give up Avast, as it has been so good for me in the past. Please fix this issue... and let us know if it's being worked on or if you need any more info, please!

Since there doesn't seem to be any activity here (disappointing) I wanted to answer your question at least. You can go to http://www.oldapps.com/avast_antivirus.php and see donwloads for older versions of software, including Avast...

apurohit8m you should not have updated but performed a clean install.

I would happily try reinstalling Avast clean... but no one suggested that. The suggest above was to update to the newer version, which I did... and it didn't fix the problem.

Aside from uninstalling Avast and rebooting, is there a separate cleaner I should run to ensure I have a true-clean install?

Avastclear tool http://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avastclear.exe run the tool which will reboot the system into safemode, run for all versions ever installed then reboot back to normal and install the latest avast version http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=145192.msg1053273

Thank you for the clear direction. I will say that the "clear" program doesn't seem to do anything more than deleting folders? That being said, there were no Avast folders/files on the computer, other than an empty folder in Temp and ProgramData (win8.1). I deleted those as well, and reinstalled Avast. So far, looks like that fixed it. Thank you for suggesting the reinstall - I thought about doing this myself, but since the original suggestion was to upgrade, that's what I did.

Bottom line, looks like it's working properly again now. Thanks again.

It also cleans up entries in the registry which is what usually "messes" things up. :)

I thought it should, but it provided no indication of doing this. So be it.
