I finally figured out that Avast Internet Security is the culprit that is blocking my FTP transfers in Cute FTP and any other FTP program ( i.e. FileZilla ). What do I do to fix it??
Windows 7 Ultimate SP1
Avast Internet Security v2014.3.0.2011
What do I do to fix this? It works fine if I disable Avast.. they changed the interface and I'm a bit lost. The network application rule has been set to allow all connections for both programs and the windows filewall has passed both of them.
Thank you for your time and effort on my behalf..
