[NOT Resolved] Avast! Blocking Browser HTTP Access New Topic
« on: December 05, 2010, 11:28:45 AM »
My problem is identical to member aviator992.but not resolved

Quote
I've seen many posts throughout the web on this issue, and wonder if it will ever be fixed. Anyways, i've used Avast! for years and am close to stopping that trend. Suddenly one day, with the web shield on(as it always has been), I cannot browse the internet with Firefox or IE. It was just sudden, not one thing changed on my PC. I had used it the day before with no issues!

To help get some actual answers that may be HELPFUL, heres what I have tried, and other info as well:

1. Uninstalled, used the uninstall utility, reinstalled, no dice...
2. Made sure that I have the proxy settings correct in Firefox and IE, no dice...
3. No, I dont have any other antivirus(nor have I ever had any others). Yes, I am sure...
4. No, I dont have any other firewall, no, my windows firewall is not on, and yes, I am sure...
5. I use spybot search and destroy, along with malware bytes anti-malware. Neither of these run in the background.
6. Yes, I did try the registry fix for the TMP and TEMP values, but both are set correctly.
7. Windows XP SP3.

Like I said, i've had no issues with browsing until yesterday. Nothings changed! Other programs that use the internet such as IM's are working fine even with the shield on. This is obviously an Avast! bug, although you say it can't "block", as it only "scans", that doesn't mean anything as myself and many others have said "With the webshield turned OFF, browsing is A-O.K". Sorry if I am sounding rude, but I am tired of developers not admitting to their flaws and blaming everything but their program. No Fanboyism!!!!! Thanks in advance.
Working with assembly of machines and always use avast on my work.
Until a few days ago everything was fine, but in recent updates to the Internet has been stalled in IE and Firefox. several solutions and had no success, bug avast? XP bug?

Win XP SP3 new installation and updated
never old antivirus nor spyware program

some new instalation block ther internet.

I Try
winsokxpfix ...Not resolved
uninstall......not resolved

Help me

You seem to be from Brazil by your visible ctidigital.com.br address.

You need to get TECH involved as he understands Brazilian Portuguese.  ;)

avast suddenly closing/crashing could be, in my opinion:
1. Infection (like Bagle, Beagle, Sality).
2. Remains of other antivirus or incompatible program.
3. Bad avast installation due to 1 or 2.

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.
The best things in life are free.

I'm currently on a new installation of xpsp3 and the same problem occurred. already uninstalled and installed two vezez and still no internet. I believe if the problem persists let avast. Grateful
