Several days have passed since the last substantive replies for this problem.  I have put in all Avast/M'bytes exclusions.  I have uninstalled (clean uninstall) and reinstalled Avast.  These did not work.  I contacted Avast tech support and was strongly urged to spend money for "advanced diagnostics" (shame!).  Are Avast programmers/developers working on this?
Have you tried to totally remove Malwarebytes to see if that clears the problem ???
This would include downloading and running MB-Clean. You can download that tool from

SUCCESS :)
I did following (using helpful info in earlier posts *)

Downloaded AvastClear.exe and avast_internet_security_setup_offline.exe
Uninstall of Avast Internet Security via Control Panel
Ran AvastClear (went to Safe mode when asked)
Install
Setup
Connected Wifi
Activated ( ie I am using paid version)
Completed setup.

Took a about 60 minutes (mostly: download, reading, checking, documenting,  restorePoint  and other paranoid behavior <grin>)

A BONUS: Behavior shield now can be switched ON (previously I could not get the ON setting to Stay]

I was using Avast Free Version, but Avast keeps showing pop-up about upgrade to Premium Avast. I did upgrade, paid the money and then lost the Internet connection. Well done from Avast! Keep user stay away from the Internet is the safest way to protect computer
