You are looking in a different place to the Image that Lano  posted.

Avast UI >  Menu > Settings > Protection > Network Inspector > List of monitored networks.

Yes, you're right and I know it's different.
But still I can NOT delete these items here. Any solution? Thx.

You don't say 'what you have done' to try and get rid of them so it is hard to make any suggestion.

Do you have any clue what the entries in your Firewall Networks image were, open the Show settings and see if you recognise them and or should they be trusted.  I have lots of entries in Firewall Networks some unknown and some known.

However, my list of monitored Networks is very small two or occasionally 3.

Hi, the list of networks is taken from Windows OS. The source data should be present in the following registry:
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkList\Profiles\"
You can see the network profiles in that registry directory. You can even delete redundant profiles in Regedit (restart might be required).
Please note that removing registry items is generally not recommended.
