DNS resolve has failed?
« on: April 05, 2019, 05:14:29 AM »
Hi Guys,

I tried to update my Avast today, and I kept getting this error message :

'DNS resolve has failed'

And it does not update.

I also seem to have lost my network connection, somehow ?

Any thoughts or help ?

Thanks !

Hi Hannon,

Are there any other software programs that could be trying to inspect your traffic, such as other Antivirus applications?
