I am using "avast! FREE ANTIVIRUS" on a Windows 8 System.
I am encountering the following problem from a week or so.
With the Network Sheild ON, I am not able to browse almost all of the sites.
Google Works fine, so does some email websites such as GMail etc. But other than that I am not able to browse any of the Sites (for ex: even Imdb.com).
I tried using Chrome, Internet Explorer and even FireFox.
I am problems accessing even the avast's official website.
The browsers just say "Connecting" and then nothing.
Once I turn OFF the NetworkSheild...everything works perfect.
I had to do this..even to post this message in the forum
When I connect to the Internet over Wifi using the same router on a mobile device, it works perfectly fine.
What might be the problem?
PS: This is the second time I am trying to post this message. As during the first time, the network Sheild got turned ON (after 10 mins). I have had to close my browser and turn OFF the NetworkSheid and re-post this message.
