Because of Iran censorship almost every Iranian Internet user has kind of proxy for himself and it bypass all
Thanks for dropping some light for the ones that cannot imagine you're in such censorship.
Thanks you have TOR or something like that...

just heard about the restriction
sorry to hear that...avast has been generous but now...
I have no idea where these rules come from....all I know is that this is not Humanitarian
You are not restricting Government,you are banning HOME USERS,just ordinary people

I m not using avast caues it s not my choice,but I have to condemn their policy

I ve had the same problem with AVG and I had some threads here:

and here:

http://forums.avg.com/us-en/avg-forums?sec=thread&act=show&id=204399#post_204399


I mentioned avast as a friendly company not obeying this unfair rule,and  it dissapointed me

offcourse it can be bypassed,using IP changers(such as VPN),but
thats not good for avast reputation
it s a black spot in avast's history

Since yesterday I am having the same problem in Spain. Can't update Avast and can't open avast.com or www.avast.com. Works only forum. This happened on 2 computers at the same time:

Hi tfe,

Did you try it manually also. Did you try to ping 95.211.168.38 and what were the ping-results?

No, I didn't try manually and don't know how to do it. Ping and traceroute works fine.

Just scanned computer with Malwarebytes and Kaspersky virus removal tool - they didn't find any problems.

Just right click on the avast user interface, go to "actualizar" and click one of the sidescreens with "engine and virus definitions"  and the other  "programa".

Polonus, the problem persists since yesterday on 2 computers. I already scanned both computers with Malwarebytes, Kaspersky Virus removal tool, Spubot search and destroy. I also changed the IP address - doesn't help. I tried to open Avast websites in safe mode - can't open.

I just switched on my 3rd computer which was off for 3 weeks. The same problem. Avast doesn't update and I can't open Avast websites, except forum.

I tried to run OTL.exe, but Avast shows a warning message and then closes OTL.exe

Panda cloud-free and
Immunet Free Antivirus, security best to give me. Well they work together. See the results of this test. http://www.av-test.org/en/tests/home-user/marapr-2012/. Really free Panda Cloud is excellent.

Thanks to avast boycott, led me to become familiar with two wonderful anti virus. :)
