Why can't you get into PayPal, the error message or screenshot might be helpful.
I use PayPal without problem I'm using Avast Antivirus Free version - avast! free 24.3.6108 (build 24.3.8975.762)
My browser is Firefox and the Web Shield in order to protect you has to have some sort integration with your browser

What Avast Program/s are you using and what browser  ?

I just wonder if you also have the Avast, Real Site or a VPN component/s  ?

Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 24.5.6116 (build 24.5.9153.762) UI 1.0.808/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

Yep a screenshot of 'Your browser is being managed by your organisation' will help, as well as what DavidR said.
Windows 10 Home 64-bit 22H2 Microsoft Windows Defender - Windows 11 Home 23H2 - Windows 11 Pro 23H2 Avast Premier Security version 24.4.6112 (build 24.4.9067.762) UI version 1.0.803

I don't think this screenshot is very useful, I think most firefox/avast users can show it to you.... like me here

However, as DavidR requested

 a screenshot of what happens when he tries to open paypal would be more interesting.

For example, because avast manages firefox, the Real Site agent imposes its own DNS on the DNS over HTTPS (DoH) function, it can happen that avast blocks ( safely or not) certain sites.

This is the case for me https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=326957.0

but as far I'm concerned,it doesn't block Paypal

Like said by avast team, it is difficult to reproduce the problem for each person, as the secure DNS are not the same for everyone and are allocated locally. :-[
