Anyone else is having this issue?  I am on my Windows 7 Pro PC writing this post, because my mac is blocking forum.avast.com unless I disable webshield.

Even Avast for Mac doesn't like Avast lmfao

No, I don't have that issue. What does the warning say?

no warning.  It just won't display the page, saying the server is not sending any data.

As soon as I turn off Webshield I can get on to http://forum.avast.com.

I tried this with both Chrome and Safari.  Does the same thing

When the webshield blocks a page you get a warning. This is something else.

More or less same problem on a Mini Mac Mountain Lion, check Web Shield    ON   and no more web connection until unchecked.   A Mac Pro running Lion does NOT have the problem sitting next to it and on same router.   Only "host" I can see on NEtstat is the "default" address for the router and "localhost".    Any Help?    J Vee

Try to disable IPv6 support in the avast webshield/mailshield configuration and see if that helps.

Know issue that we cannot well reproduce is that after an avast! installation webshield blocks a network traffic until a computer reboot.

 :(n  I guess from the lack of response that Avast does not support Web Shield on Mountain Lion OS.  I did want to upgrade to paid version for several computers but just can't without a fix for this problem.

I don't have that issue on Mountain Lion (10.8.4). It just runs well.

Excuse me, have you tried to uninstall Avast! in a proper way and reinstall it?
