Problem with Avast free version help please

  bof:) 18:27 10 Sep 2007

Hi all, decided to try out the free version of Avast Home but find I can only connect to the net if I set Resident Scanner to Disabled.

As soon as I set it to anything else I get timed out if I try to connect to the net.

I've unistalled AVG free before installing Avast. Ran Avast and it found several virus mainly win32:CTX which I've put in the virus chest.

So what am I doing wrong that I cannot connect if resident scanner is running as Standard?

many thanks,

Web shield - customise - check if you are blocking any URLs.

Hi Fruit Bat /\0/\, not blockinh any urls, so had a think and looked at my firewall,Sunbelt Kerio and found that it was blocking Avast.

I've allowed Avast and all seems ok now.

Thankyou very much for your help, its greatly appreciated.
