Hello,

I have an issue with Avast Free - when Web Shield active - DNS not working.
I created case, technical support engineer suggested to try this beta version, but nothing changed.
Please create checkbox "Don't touch DNS". Please let me choose to leave my DNS alone. Just let it work.

Case: https://support.avast.com/support/tickets/11404

Are you using Avast free? Web Shield does not change anything related to network settings and, for sure, does not change DNS.
SecureDNS is a feature of Avast (paid versions) that could be disabled, but, of course, it works too and should bring any trouble to DNS.

Well, this works amazing, the "preparing automatic recovery" on each reboot since i installed avast is fixed. :'D

Hello,
I'm using Avast Free. Of course It doesn't change network setting, it just blocks function of DNS client when Web Shield is ON.
My notebook can't resolve any FQDN to IP address while Web Shield is on.
So I think it will be so great if there is an option to not completely turn Web Shield OFF but to disable DNS related functionality - something like "Don't try to protect my DNS".
