As the title says, I have just installed Avast Internet Security, and now I cannot access the internet without disabling the Web Shield.
I've looked at their knowledge base which, for a computer numpty like me, is not very helpful...
Check your firewall configuration. For the correct operation the Web Shield process (ashWebSv.exe or aswWebSv.exe) needs a permission to access the Internet on TCP port 80 and a permission to act as a server and accept incoming connections from localhost (the local machine) on TCP port 12080.
Err... What? How do I go about this?
For your information, I have uninstalled Norton 360, and am running Windows 7 Home Premium.
