napop,

1) are you using firewall software?

2) is your computer connected to the internet via a router?

both of these things are much more likely (if you have them) to be affecting your ability to play these games fully online.

OK, try right click on the avast icon in the system tray and select On-Access Protection Control that should bring up the correct window.

If you aren't using a firewall (you don't have control of your system) I suggest you get one of the free ones Zone Alarm should be fine.

We are still waiting for answers to questions asked, we have no further information to be able to help further:
Quote
How is it being blocked?
What errors/warnings or symptoms are you seeing to indicate it is blocked?
Or is it that because the AV is doing what it should do, scan files that are accessed/modified by the program and this slows the game?

With web shield and network shield disabled/paused/terminated there should be nothing scanning your on-line activity to slow/stop unless there is a lot of HDD activity (files getting accessed/updated/edited) associated with the game.

Please answer the above questions plus these:
When playing the game does the avast icon spin?
If it does spin check and see which provider is scanning? - check the Scanned Count: and Last Scanned: in the On-Access Scanner window (the one you eventually found).

If as you say that having disabled the avast elements and it still happens there is obviously something else in the mix. As you say this is happening on another computer with a different AV something that is common to both has to be the cause.

Exactly what this is, your 3Com network or a firewall, I assume you have a firewall on each computer on the network? Firewall logs should show what is blocked and the reason for blocking.

Unfortunately I don't use my computer for games I don't know the ins and outs of on-line gaming. Perhaps a google search for on-line gaming forums may offer some advice.

Like David said, maybe other thing in the pot...

well i checked and it didnt work BUT now when i think of it it doesnt work in my other computer and we have 3com network....perhaps this is what blocks it?
No... I have 3com network working with avast since version 4.0  ;D

i mean it doesnt work on both computers and in my other computer i have panda antivirus....ill check
Maybe software conflict... Did you install any antivirus in this machine before? How did you uninstall it?
