    Avast is blocking my son from browsing the web
    « on: January 20, 2008, 07:28:50 AM »
    I'm asking this on behalf of my full-time working college student son who doesn't have a lot of time to try and figure out his own problems.

    Anyway, he recently downloaded and installed Avast anti-virus, and after doing so, has been unable to go to any websites at all. When he turns off Avast and relies on the Vista security features, he has no problem with surfing.

    Any thoughts?

    Some AVs simply don't agree with some PCs. Everyones set up is different so the results on how well they work can vary.

    Try to uninstall Avast and instead install AVG-Free and see if it will allow normal functions.

      That's a good idea. I'll have him give that a try. Thanks.
