I have the same problem.

Avast 7 was a clean installation.

I tested the speed with Web Shield on, Scan web unchecked and Web Shield off.

See attached for speed results.
Any help would be appreciated.

no ideas about the slowdown, but wanted to contribute about the ping slowdown - webshield is a HTTP proxy. the service does not and cannot execute any of its bits while the system sends ICMP packets aka ping. there is no relevant connection there in between these two. if you see any, this only mean something different, such as it is not the latency (ping) what the test shows or some other problem with the test or measurements.
