    Help please! I have the free version of avast (home) and for some reason its blocking access to websites like my hotmail, facebook, youtube, wikipedia, even websites like victoria's secret page. TSR is one of the only big sites that seem to be working, but even though it allows me to load it, I get a message about Trojan blocked or Malware blocked if i refresh the page or go to a new thread etc. This has never happened before, it started only today and its unbelievably annoying. If anyone knows why this is happening and/or how i can solve it, please let me know!

    Thank you

    Yo, created an account to answer this.

    There seems to have been a bug with Avast today, myself and a friend's friend suffered this.
    I could not access the internet and when I scanned my PC it declared all of my programmes viruses.

    The solution: Open up Avast, click on Maintenance, and Update it!
    There are two things, update the software and update the virus definitions. I did both, was very quick, and problem solved. Good luck.

    Mine was doing this last week brah.

    Tried updating but didn't help much..

    I just uninstalled/reinstalled and it's fine now.

    It's only the free one I have, but I have to keep it in gaming mode, otherwise when I'm in the middle of something and I've left my speakers on loud-ish, I get scared half to death by..

    "VIRUS DATABASE HAS BEEN UPDATED!!!!".
