What OS/SP ?
What exact avast version ?
Do you have other security (related) software installed ? (or did you)

What is your operating system and firewall ?

What avast version are you using, avast free/pro/internet security/Premier ?
What is the build number, avast 2015.10.2.2215 being the latest.

Have (or did) you another Anti-Virus installed in this system, if so what was it and how did you get rid of it ?
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 21.8.2487 (build 21.8.6586.693) UI 1.0.666/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security
