Avast won't let me open Outlook?
« on: May 20, 2015, 11:05:18 AM »
Hi all, hoping someone can help me with this problem (apologies if this is in the incorrect forum).

I have the free Avast version 2015.10.2.2218 running on Windows 8.1.  This morning I've tried opening Microsoft Outlook (Office 365) but all I'm getting is the following load screen:



with the message "Contacting: http://static.avast.com/emails/avast-mail-stamp.png"

Can anyone offer a solution to this problem?

Thanks

That didn't no.

I've since done the good ol' turn the machine off then back on again, and it's now working again.

Very strange.
