So avast said it needed an update, now it blocks all internet traffic to the browser, my weather gadget still works but not the browsee.. if I disable the web shield its ok.. what's happened? Has something become corrupted?

2 of my computers are protected using Norton and the internet is fine but on the desktop which has Avast there is no internet connection. It i a faulty update from Avast

try an Avast Repair:
- Go to Control Panel > Add/Remove programs > Avast Antivirus.
- Scroll down and choose Repair function in the pop-up window.
- Reboot.
