Hi Thanks for all the responses .

I dont want to load the new version because I strongly suspect the same thing will happen.

I have used the remove utility and loaded the new version about 6 times and the web shield will not activate when I do that

This is the first time it has worked and its because I loaded the old version - so my guess is there is something wrong with that new version and my computer .

I dont have any 'license code' with 2218 - what do I need to do to get a license code ??

Well,

in your first post you said

I updated avast free

and now

reloading this older version

.............public.avast.com/~havel/2218/avast_internet_security_setup.exe

So , it's normal avast wants you to pay $30 (AIS is a paid suite) , you have to download v2218 of Avast Antivirus only (AV is free)

How many times msn56 will have to say the latest version of Avast don't work anyway (like me even after 20 clean install) , the only way for us and for now is v2218 , no more.

SO I uninstalled using the utility in safe mode then installed this version in safe mode and now it appears that all shields are working!!
OK with 2218 but with AIS not AV

You don't have to pay. I've used the free version since 2003 and am still very happy with it. If you need an older version, you'll find it at:

Firefox 41.0.1 is saying nothing and allows access to the old apps link given in Reply #22 above.
