Getting pop-ups from Avast! Free -

"The online content is unavailable
Please, check your internet connection and try again."

Just started happening today. The rest of the internet appears to be working OK, so it appears to be specific to your site.

Same here.  Brings up the Account Tab.  I'm pretty clearly online since I'm posting this.  :V

Since today, 13h approx (Western Europe) I get Avast (free) poppin up on my Windows PC (didn't check Android devices yet) with "The online content is unavailable". Also loging in with my account-credentials doesn't work. What's going on?

Same here and this is a serious issue: Avast drops me down to desktop constantly from Metal Gear Solid V Phantom Pain. It was so frustrating so I uninstalled whole program.

Edit: If it cant connect to servers it shouldn't interrupt my gaming.

Same here, both on home users (free accounts) and paid users (business accounts).  I have a ton of people contacting me about it.  What the heck.

That's pretty dumb, if that's the case.  So far I'm spending my morning telling people to ignore it.  All this less than a day after a zero-day bug was announced (and supposedly patched):

http://news.softpedia.com/news/zero-day-exploit-found-in-avast-antivirus-493958.shtml

Not to mention the spying allegations:

http://neurogadget.com/2015/10/07/was-avast-antivirus-spying-on-users/17040

Between this & that issue of Avast eating hard drives earlier this year, I'm getting pretty annoyed with the software.  The forum is also horribly slow right now, this is my third time trying to post this message  :P

Same problem. I actually came onto the forum to start a thread about it myself, glad it's not just me it's happening to. Really annoying, I was playing Warframe and it kept popping up constantly, got me killed twice...

I'll give it a few hours before uninstalling, there are other free antivirus that work just as well

This is happening to me as well...glad to see I'm not the only one! My internet seems to be fine. I'm on Avast Premier, also.

Edit:
Whatever was going on seems to have fixed itself...I think? I'll keep an eye out. Additionally the forums are running rather slowly...guess more people are having the issue than I thought.
