More information might be helpful.
What operating system? What version of Avast? What other security related apps are installed?

Hi,

Are you on WiFi or LAN? What error message do you get when the internet is disconnected?
Could you please temporarily disable the Avast Shields and see if there is a difference (Right-click on the Avast Antivirus icon in the system tray > click on Avast Shields Control > select an option)
If you notice an improvement, please re-enable them one by one, starting with the Firewall and see if the issue occurs again.

1. Enable debug logging (Menu > Settings > General > Troubleshooting > Enable debug logging) and reproduce the issue.
2. Follow instructions: https://support.avast.com/article/33/ and post the File-ID or name of the Support-File here afterwards.

Same issues here.  I have the full meal deal from Avast; it has been working well (for the past 2 months). But this week, all Internet connectivity is a failure. I'm working at 1/4 speed, rebooting every half hour, losing the internet, total chaos, very slow even when it reboots. Am running Windows 10. Am very close to cancelling my subscriptions and uninstalling.
