Have you checked the web shield settings- that web scanning is still turned on, and under expert settings to make sure everything is normal?  There have been a few reports of things stopping, but nothing with a consistent trend.  I get a bunch of bars marching across the screen whenever I look, plus the last scanned indicator.  You can try a reboot or reinstall if nothing is working like that, but don't really know about a cause.

Are you using an unsupported browser, or any proxy?

firzen : have you turned the shield off and on at any time previously ? This happened to me after having turned it off then on again - it came back after a reboot.

One other thing to look at.  I saw another posting saying there appeared to be a problem related to the protection module.  You can try unchecking that, and also under redirect unchecking "ignore local communications" for the port 80 redirect.  What browser are you using, or did you try with all of them?

Hi  :)

When you click on a Web page... Does your avast taskbar icon ( a ) actually spin .. Indicating that avast is scanning the webpage?

What other security software are you using?
Example... Firewall
OR... Any kind of Advert Blocking software
Any other kind of software that you think might have an imapact on avasts ability to scan web pages?
