As far as I am aware, Iran has a history of restricting certain internet activity and web access.
It may or may not be some of the problem you are facing.

I see no reason why Avast would be restricted, but then again, if your country is actively involved
in restricting web access, it could be part of the problem.

Is your access overall affected, or is it just inability to access Avast?

All my best!
Jim

avast does not block it's own update servers and do not offer redirection of specific IP. Maybe "someone" in your country is doing that.

Hello friends. Sorry my English is poor. Not update my antivirus. Is approximately three to four days. Also I can not get avast site, just enter the site could become a proxy. I'm in love avast free, avast do not want to lose. Address my Internet service provider http://www.tci-khorasan.ir/
Please please help me.
Thank you.

Hi soroush,

Very, very unfortunate situation here.  Zulu'd link you provided, and it appears a known service provider (link above) you use is infected with malware!

If it's the same as with AVG, then it's intentional (and I guess most other AV companies will follow suit sooner or later), and you are out of luck. If you have a paid version, ask for a refund.
