avast! Internet Security Automatically Limits Browser Access
« on: December 04, 2013, 05:09:28 PM »
I am running version: 2014.9.0.2007 of AVI (purchased.)  A number of weeks ago, I upgraded to this version.

Recently, after rebooting, browser access appears fine for about 1 hour and then URL stop resolving. If I temporarily shut off avast! the URL resolve as expected. These are URLs like youtube.com etc. so they are very common and not expected to be blocked - in any case, they are accessible for in that initial period after reboot.

This means that I have to turn off avast! to access general sites on the internet, which appears to defeat the purpose of having a security package.

Can some direct me to how I might identify and correct this problem?

Thanks,
