2. Click on 'Repair'.
3. Follow instructions.

The no internet because of webshield issue is gone for now. However, when I open the GUI the PC hangs for a minute or two then the PC operates smoothly again.

I recommend when updating to this version to do a clean uninstall.

Webshield issue is back and it seems only happens with internet connected via Bayandsl. Does not occurs on my university's internet.

So if you deactivate WebShield you have Internet? Are sure it's not any other security software? Emsisoft Online Armor f.e. likely sets in Firewall\Ports -Tab (only while Programs are ok) AvastSvc as blocked after an update. Ah - just got - it's the same pc/laptop? If so it can't be s.t. like that (except rules for places change). If you got the Desktop at home and laptop at university you might want to check.

it would be nice if an update adds new features they wouldn't be installed silently, but asked for user permission.

 :(Problem:
Each time I boot up my computer I get the avast warning
"The last attempt to update your virus definitions was unsuccessful...update again"
or words to that effect.

When I click on Update button from pop up it opens a dialogue box which (sometimes) has automatically started "updating".  It only takes 4s which is not convincing.
Then I click on OK, it comes up with Update Engine and virus definitions - click and again only 5s despite being step 1/2
Update Program, (Step 1/3), click on that, takes 13s.
None of this is getting me anywhere.
What can I do to get round this loop?
How vulnerable is my computer right now?
Windows 7 Ultimate
Firefox

So far I'm still using aVast free version 8.0.1483 because the program did not warn about the existence of a new version.

Any problems? This is normal?

Thankful since already
