The avast free version doesn't have that function, it isn't a firewall, which is where I would consider being the logical place to block sites.

You can also block sites using the HOSTS file, manually of using one of the many HOSTS file managers.

Some browsers, firefox (with adblock plus and or NoScript add-ons), etc. have add-ons which can also be used to block sites.
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 22.2.6003 (build 22.2.7013.717) UI 1.0.697/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

You can use www.k9webprotection.com for parental control or site blocking.

Windows Seven Firewall can be use to block sites or links?
