Well... Avast is a very good product. It should also be reflected in other good products like K9. After all the two works perfectly in tandem.  :)

My thanks also to the forumers who emailed Blue Coat about this.  ;D
As I also use the product.  ;D

As I wrote earlier: If you want to be on the absolute safe side, put avast.com into the whitelist (always allow) of K9, so a false rating from BlueCoat for avast won't affect you again.

Had done that when I first encountered the problem. Thanks for the suggestion.
