If you want total protection I would advise to have all three shields running. They work as needed, for instance you move or open a file
then the file shield will scan that file. Or when you visit a website then the web shield will scan. The mail shield only works with certain
email clients. However if you use a web based email then the web shield will do the scanning. I only use web based email services, Yahoo,
Gmail and Outlook.com, but I keep the mail shield installed. So for me all the mail shield does is take up a tiny miniscule of HDD space and
let the web shield protect me. But if I decide to use Outlook or Thunderbird the mail shield is already up and running.
Dell Inspiron, Win10x64--HP Envy Win10x64--Both systems Avast Free v17.9.2322, Comodo Firewall v8.2 w/D+, MalwareBytes v3.0, OpenDNS, Super Anti-Spyware, Spyware Blaster, MCShield, Unchecky, Vivaldi Browser and, various browser security tools.

looking at from Avast all shields seem active, how are shields connected to the 2 processes i mentioned?

NG services right now are not running for anyone. Avast is solving a problem and stated
that the service should be back by next Mon. (Sorry can't find the link to their post at the moment)

OK i was thinking that they don't work cause of a bug or win glitch, that win update messed something up, so NG is controlled from outside my PC by 3th party (Avast team)? like there is NG server & if that is shut down then NG in PC shuts down to?

same issue with virtualbox interface for all?

Are you sure you have the free version and not a trial version?
Look at the top of the "overview" screen. It should look like this.
Dell Inspiron, Win10x64--HP Envy Win10x64--Both systems Avast Free v17.9.2322, Comodo Firewall v8.2 w/D+, MalwareBytes v3.0, OpenDNS, Super Anti-Spyware, Spyware Blaster, MCShield, Unchecky, Vivaldi Browser and, various browser security tools.
