Avast blocking internet
« on: September 17, 2022, 02:04:54 AM »
Avast's firewall has been blocking the internet. I have tried multiple fixes and nothing has worked. I've tried updating Avast, I've tried disabling HTTPS scanning, and I've tried reinstalling avast. The only thing that works is to temporarily disable the firewall, but I need a more permanent solution that allows me to keep the protection of the firewall. Every website seems to be blocked, not just a few.

What Avast Product (Avast Free, Avast Premium, etc.) and version number are you using ?

What other security software do you have installed ?
How long has this been happening, what change around that time  ?

Can you post a screenshot of avast supposedly blocking everything.

How do you connect to the internet, WiFi, Router or other  ?
What is your Firewall setting Trusted/Private connection, otherwise it could block outside Public untrusted connections  ?

The same problem, no information to work with, how can anyone help.

With my system and Avast Free latest version, I'm not experiencing this issue.

What does this mean?
What else is the alternative?
