Game is now stable and does not crash, however I believe the online connectivity is still being affected.

I thought that too but it's hard to say if it's just launch-week server issues or Avast interfering with the game. If you disable the shields for longer does it fix the issue or do you still get the error messages?

Here's what i did to fix it -

Under Protection > Firewall > Application rules > Search Forza > Locate ForzaHorizon5.exe > Change Allowed connections to All connections.

I tried adding an exception definition (for MS Store), I tried the virus definition update, I've tried running as administrator, I've allowed "all connections" and used "auto-decide" for the other connection requests (I've also tried "Ask"), and I've tried shutting down all other applications besides Avast.  No luck.  It will run beautifully if I turn off "all shields" on Avast without running as administrator and even with other programs running.  I have the latest version of Avast (paid subscription).  My PC is 100% up-to-date including drivers.  I don't want to simply play without an antivirus running.  Any other suggestions?
