Could Avast block downloading digital photos?
« on: January 18, 2009, 04:29:10 AM »
Since installing Avast anti-virus I am unable to download photos from my digital camera.  Something is blocking it.  Would there be a setting in Avast causing this, or could it be Windows firewall, which was also just activated since I uninstalled Norton 360.

I take it that you aren't actually using the avast 4 server version ?

avast isn't a firewall and as such doesn't block, it scans content and alerts to infection but doesn't block.

I fear you still have remnants of your previous Norton 360 that are causing a conflict.

A link worth looking at, which is a program removal tool that can remove the remnants of a number of different Norton Programs:

Yes, I did uninstall Norton 360 using that software.  I had read about it, and went into the Symantec website and downloaded it and uninstalled Norton 360 using it.  So, that can't be the problem.  I realize Avast isn't a firewall, and if there are no settings in Avast that could be causing it, then I presume it's Windows Firewall causing it.  I will post a question with Microsoft's forum.  Thank you for responding.

Is there any other security program that could interfere? ????

 ;D  That question says it all!!  By the way, I posted in the wrong forum.  I'm using Avast 4.8 Home Edition.  Anyway, if I find out what's blocking my camera I will try to remember to post back here to let you all know!
