    No Internet access after installing Avast Antivirus in Windows 8 System.

    Hello, I have installed avast internet security on my windows 8 pc and rebooted, then there is a cross mark on computer icon when cursor is placed showing No internet access, seeing that I uninstalled the avast, then my internet connection is back, I tried another antivirus avira beta and same thing happens with internet connection. What is the solution for this? How do I secure my system without these 3rd party anti viruses? Thank you.

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say........

    As you are saying that you have installed the avast internet security.

    1.Firstly open the 'Avast Internet Security'.

    2.Then you go to the 'Settings'.

    3.Then you go the 'Troubleshooting'.

    4.Then you make a tick mark to the option 'Load avast! Services only after loading other services'.

    5.At last click on the option 'Apply' and then 'OK'.

    Have a nice day........

    hi,
    check that u have not disabled the connections settings.
    if so,go to avast interface,go to settings,and then go to troubleshooting.
    in that tick the checkbox that says load avast services after all other services r loaded.
    then click apply,and ok.
    good day!!!!!!!

    Yes there is bug with the internet securities software with windows 8
    The internet securities software are blocking internet access when installed in windows 8
    To help fix this problem just uninstall your internet security software

    But you shall be left vulnerable without any security software and hence install avast free antivirus remember free antivirus not the internet security
    Hope the problem shall be fixed in the next editions of the internet security software

    Reasons behind your issue are,

    Follow these steps to resolve your issue,

    1:Internet connection

    2:Firewall

    3:Exceptions

    Solutions,

    1:Make sure you have internet connection before opening internet browser

    Go to change adapter settings and enable if it is disabled!

    2:Make sure your system's firewall is turned on

    Go to fire wall window and turn it on and try another time by opening your brower

    3:Make sure your avast antivirus has allowed exceptions

    If your antivirus doesn't allow those exceptions then you won't get any service so enable exceptions in your antivirus program

    That's it over!

    hello guest !!

    since installing any antivirus in your system makes your internet connection disable.
    because the antiviruse consider your internet connection as untrusted source.
    due to which it disable your internet.
    so for this do follow the following steps:-
    1. open your antivirus.
    2.go to settings
    3.go to connections
    4.select >> allow all connection

    your problem will be solved.

    Re: No Internet access after installing Avast Antivirus in Windows 8 System.

    Hello

    Sometimes internet connection blocked by antivirus due to setting mismatch or incorrect installation of the antivirus. To overcome that i suggest you these instruction...

    >>>>Uninstall Avast antivirus from your system and try install again. If your problem caused by wrong installation than this procedure will solve that problem. If you still have that problem than go to next step..

    >>>>Now you need to change avast setting to make internet connection. To change setting just click on Setting onto the avast antivirus and than click connections and make allow all connection. I think after doing so you will resolve that problem.

    >>>>If you still have that problem than you need to replace your antivirus from any other antivirus program just download your choice and install into your system.

    Try this i hope this will help you.............

    It is a common issue, the security software is causing havoc in the system.

    Don't try to install any beta version of antivirus ever, they create more problems than solutions.

    Boot in Safe Mode of your Windows 8 Operating System,

    Then try to install Avast Antivirus Program, once finished revert to Normal Mode Boot.

    You can activate Windows Defender too which is built in within your Windows 8. It works well with Windows. But remember if any other antivirus is installed or attempted to be installed, Windows Defender will not be installed or activated.

    Hello Dear ASpirant ..


    You need to enable the internet access in the Avast security .

    Open the Avast anti virus program and the go to settings

    Enable the Internet access and disable the firewall .

    Restart your device after that .

    And try to access the internet , if the problem still persists then Reinstall the Avast antivirus program.

    Thank you...
