I am not sure if this could be a problem or not. Maybe somebody here can confirm if this would be a problem. Go into internet explorer and click Tool>Internet options then the connections tab. Click the "Lan Settings" button. Do you have anything under Proxy Server?

I had the same problem on 32 bit XP pro some months ago, and avast tech tried to help me get it going.  After awhile gave up and installed AVG.

Now I'm having the same problem on 64 bit XP (different computer) which is why I caught this thread.

There have been no problems on Vista 64bit, and laptop with XP home. I will reinstall and see if that helps.

I use a bastion firewall (untangle) with it's own DNS server.  I can ping by URL name (i.e. google.com) and get response, but any browser hangs awaiting response from web server — apparently being blocked by avast web shield.

Same problem after reinstall.

Both these problem computers had run avast for years without problems.

The 32bit system was used daily and the 64bit system was used once a month or so.

I not going to futz with this, I'll just get AVG.

I found all that by checking google before I made this thread, and it still never worked. I just find it odd that my main computer isnt having this problem. It has to be with latest installs of Pro, since I have had pro on my main comp since january with no problems whatsoever\.

Some avast users have reported that repairing Winsock helped the problem.

http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=65054.0

You can reset XP SP3 Winsock using the following command.

netsh winsock reset catalog

Or use the fixit utility.

Quote
catalog: this is an argument to the “reset” instruction telling the netsh utility what we would like to reset, specifically the winsock catalog. The winsock catalog can be thought of as a list of software that has been inserted into your TCP/IP. By resetting this listing, you are reasserting which background widgets should be handling your networking tasks.

Edit: Try this command to see what is in the catalog.

netsh winsock show catalog
