can't access to internet when using avast free antivirus...why?
« on: September 09, 2010, 10:41:19 AM »
i had install the avast free antivirus after that i tried to access to the internet, the browser always said "explorer cannot display the web page" . But the network connection is totally normal.
After I uninstalled the avast free antivirus, the browser can display the web page.
What's going on? It is the setting problem. Anyone know the issue?

Thank you

We will need more information to be able to help you:
- Which OS are you using? Is it up to date?
- Do you use a firewall? Which one?
- Do you have any other antivirus installed in your system?  Did you have in the past?
- Any other security programs that could interfere?

I suggest an installation from scratch:

1. Download the latest version of avast! Uninstall Utility and save it.
2. Download the latest avast! version and save it.
3. Uninstall avast from Control Panel (if possible). If, for any reason, you can't run it, try booting in Safe Mode and doing it from there. Anyway, boot after that.
4. Run the avast! Uninstall Utility saved on 1. If, for any reason, you can't run it, try booting in Safe Mode and doing it from there. Anyway, boot after you've run it.
5. Install avast! using the setup saved on 2. Boot.
6. Register your free copy or add the license key for Pro.
7. Check and post the results.
