Avast blocks DNS queries
« on: October 05, 2023, 11:48:42 PM »
As subject, since this morning Avast web protection module blocks DNS queries from my pc but i can ping any ip as long as i use the ip address.
Simply typing nslookup www.google.com (or any other) returns dns query timeout.
Disabling Web protection from Avast interface solves the issue, i can navigate without any problem but it's also dangerous.
Rebooting the pc makes it run again fine with protection turned on for like a couple of hours, after which the problem starts again.
I've used Avast free for more than 10 years and it never happened before.
Os: Win 10 Pro, Avast 23.9, both updated.
Any suggestion how to solve the issue?
Thankyou all.

same thing happened to me , started since yesterday (already twice): win11 22h2, Avast Premium 23.9.6082 (build 23.9.8494.796) , 231006-0.
1st time i rebooted , it solved issue , 2nd time i disabled/reenabled all shields issue went away.
