First, be sure to get rid of all remnants of your prior installed AV(s)..!!
-> https://support.avast.com/article/11/

Then:
1. Download Avast Free Antivirus: https://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avast_free_antivirus_setup_offline.exe
2. Follow instructions: https://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility (Run this tool for all prior installed Avast versions..!!)
3. Reinstall Avast with the downloaded installer from point 1.
4. Reboot.

Hi Guys,

I couldn't able to update Avast Free Antivirus, it doesn't load the Process even though it is allowed to access the Internet via Firewall?

Same happened to me, but when I removed previous antivirus remaining files than It works correctly as @Asyn suggested.
