What version of  Windows 10 ??? What version of Avast ???
Have you rebooted the system after installing Avast ???

Same thing here. Updated to Windows 10, updated Avast program. No connection via Secureline VPN. Called Avast. The person told me that I purchased VPN for a different operating system, and that I would have to pay $179 for a year of support to fix it! I hope this is not true. Avast will lose a LOT of customers, if so.

Also tried the Registry change which others have discussed. No luck!

Did I waste my money on a dog? I paid for 2 years of VPN!

You have just upgraded your operating system... Have you rebooted twice since updating ?

If yes then run a repair of Avast

Does no one look at other related topics  https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=174321.0

another solution, disable windows firewall, go to network setting, adapter setting, adapter properties, uninstall avast firewall protokoll from network adapter, reinstall avast, aktivate avast firewall, done

I'd consider that a bit complicated and unnecessary. :)
