Yeah... there are a lot of complaints concerning localhost atm.

I guess it will be corrected very soon via virus db update. Seems to be a faulty virus-db.

So does that mean its not me and theres nothing I can do?!

You can disable the Network Shield to access your email and enable it again after. Pretty rough fix but it works.

Yep. This shouldn't last too long though.
Please be patient.
Thx.

I'm getting an Error 403 when trying to update defs so hopefully that means that updates are disabled until a fix is available.

I've got the same problem BUT no my system wont update to either the latest definitions or program.  I've tried logging off the net, rebooting, changing IP addresses and I still get and error every time I try to update.

Mine had the same problem, but is fixed now (after updating and restart)

Thought it was something I had done, but am relieved to know it wasn't me.

Thanks avast!

Also, before checking email this morning, I was on Facebook trying to wish someone happy birthday.  When I tried to post on their Wall, I got the same avast message notification that the action was blocked by the Network Real-Time Shield.  That works, too, now.
