That's exactly the part of the log file we are looking for.

For some reason, there are some files required for the Web/mail shield
missing in your avast installation. The simplest solution is to re-install avast.

What is the best site to d/l Avast for Mac?  Everytime I try to d/l the program it takes me to CNet Download.com and when I downloaded the file to my Mac, it came up missing the shields listed in this thread.  So i deleted the program and reloaded it with the same result and now it shows a virus. Please advise

I just downloaded the link you gave me and after the install I clicked on the button Show Shield Statistics and the drop down window said, "Infected files/Scanned file (Size)

Filesystem shield:  0/1050 (375.4MB)
 Web Shield:         0/108   (2.9MB)

What do I do now?

The problem I have with Avast! is ...
When I  login to Avast!,  my account says … "You are protected"
When I  open Avast! on my MAC it has a message …  "You are not protected" Everything up-to-date  … Cannot detect state of one or more shields.

I open Shields and the … Mail Shield and Web Shield are greyed out …
and the Mail Shield and Web Shield icons have a circle with a line through.

I have the same issue. Reinstalled the program several times all to the same result plus I have no Safari extensions.  Please help

Please try the Beta version, there are many bug fixes, so it may
also fix your problem. If even the beta does not work for you,
then we need at least the relevant entries from the system log.

To get the Beta version, download
http://download.ff.avast.com/mac/beta/avast_free_antivirus_mac_setup.dmg

Without the (already requested) system log, we are not able to do anything.

I'm guessing  you had the pro version installed and it wasn't correctly uninstalled  (references to license key in the logs).

Hope this is it:

Unfortunately not. Those are some unimportant avast! GUI debug messages.
You need to search for "com.avast.proxy". Or, what would be the best solution,
you can generate the support package from the GUI and send it to my mail.
