Hello

Since yesterday when I reinstalled my avast I am no longer allowed to use Chrome/Mozilla. When I disable WWW protection it runs smoothly, but I guess it is important part of protection.

Could anyone help me please? Been searching on forums but haven't found anything sufficient.

Much appreciated!!!

I use Win7 Ultimate x64 and the version of Avast is 5.0.677 Free.

Hello St.Shadow and welcome to the forum.

Why did you reinstall Avast?  Was there a problem?  If so, please describe?

Is Avast currently working -- all shields are up and running?  Is anything in the Virus Chest?  Have you done any scans recently?

Mac 10.9.4 /Safari and Firefox (NoScript/AdBlockPlus/BetterPrivacy/Ghostey)/
Vista Home Prem (same add-on's)/Avast Free/Online Armor Premium Firewall/MBAM Premium)/ Mobile MBAM.

It had be reinstalled because one of the dll files was removed. Avast stopped working and when I reinstalled it, the WWW protection revoked access to Mozilla and Chrome and IE.

Is there any way to add an exception of the files for example? To allow Chrome/Mozilla/IE working properly?

Thanks for your time.
