Thanks,,I think I'll wait to reinstall until I read others that have and haven't experienced the same problem.
I see that 110120-2 update is available now and according to Vlk Posted on: Today at 09:03:08 the issue should be resolved after a reboot.

Yes, but the reboot after an update won't reinstall the behaviour shield which wasn't installed by fire on his custom avast install.

Ok that seems to be my question,,when I did the custom install I didn't include the behavior shield as advised,,and was able to access AOL. So,,can I still do as David R suggests and just go to the control panel and try that route???

No problem, nice and easy to install it and painless too, you can't beat that then.

I also can confirm reinstalling the behaviour shield along with the latest definitions no longer blocks AOL software from connecting.  Thanks Avast for your quick resolution of this matter!!!!!  I'll edit my original post with the link to the solution.
