You could try resetting it. Settings- troubleshooting and restore factory defaults.

Nice link Johnny. I Googled oldversion.com and also found Top 100 Undiscovered Websites. I hope hours of endless fun ahead.

Filehippo is also good for some old versions.

Their Avast page is here

Thank you,the Filehippo link was just what i wanted,i had searched everywhere for V6 and it always pointed to V7.Now i have V6 back everything works again,il just not have to update untill the new version has all the bugs taken out.Also fromwhat i have read online,most of the problems come from the new cloud service file rep,even if you know the file is ok,if it has a bad rep online avast blocks it,seems strange to me.Once again ty all for the links>)

The upgrade to version 7 caused so many problems for me(Opera either crashing or freezing etc.) that I deleted Avast altogether and now have Comodo antivirus which includes the firewall that I had before.
