I was about to say you shouldnt run more than one protection suite on the same pc as they can conflict.
then i checked mine and my threat protection light is on as well even though i had not turned it on.
and there is nothing blocked for me.

looking at your picture it shows public.
go into networks. are you set to public or home trusted network.

Pardon?
1 - Nord vpn is a VPN, no an AV, so should no conflict with Avast
2 - As well, is a VPN, so to access to internet, Really can use a VPN as home/trusted network?

and that is why i mentioned "i was about to say"
see a forum is where we learn. yes a vpn is a vpn. but they have now added threat protection which is a realtime protection against malware trackers and adds. so i thought as its realtime there could be some sort of conflict. if im wrong then ignore my post.
