Avast Firewall keeps asking to allow Google Chrome
« on: May 05, 2020, 01:55:13 AM »
Tried using trial Avast firewall and it keeps asking for Google Chrome's access to the Internet even if it is allowed for any connection.
This is really frustrating.




What should I do?

Did not work, but thank you. It still asks for Google Chrome.

Have the same problem with Adobe Reader. Opening a .pdf file Adobe asks for internet access, which i want to deny.
Firewall keeps asking everytime i open a .pdf-file.

The solution with the Repair App and Rebooting didnt work.
Avast is updated to the newest version.

The windows from the Avast firewall keep popping up after installing the last update (20.3.2405).
The file shield switched off.
The app "repaired".
Restarted several times.

Windows 10, 64bit
Avast Premium, nothing else now, nothing else before, Windows Defender managed by Avast
Avast froze a couple of times after switching File Shield off.

Sadly it did not work for me.
Followed the steps and also reinstalled the Adobe Reader too.

The problem still persists. Opening a pdf file reader ask for internet access. Denying it will set the permission in the firewall table. Closing the pdf and opening another another pdf file i get another popup to allow internet access.

EDIT: So far Adobe Reader is the only programm with that behavior. Tested it with other programms for example firefox and it did work as intended.

Hopefully that issue can be resolved.
