It's working! I think turning the firewall off and back on did the trick.
Thank you for your advice.

altar,

Your Signature indicates you do not have any antivirus now.  Did you reinstall Avast per my directions (step-by-step)?  If you did install Avast, just update your Signature.

If you need additional assistance, please let me know.  Thank you.

Well I didn't run the removal utility in safe mode, but I did pretty much all the rest.

The Avast Uninstatall Utility only works in Safe Mode.  Were you able to remove Avast through Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs?  Have you reinstalled yet?  If not, please follow my instructions (print them).  If Avast has any corrupt remnants, they need to be removed properly prior to re-installation.

Oops  ;D
I've reinstalled Avast 2 days ago and everything is working fine.
I think it was just a case of turning the firewall off and back on again. Very mysterious.
Thanks
