    Since the last update of Avast for MacOS, my Parallels Win7 VM has no longer access to the internet, unless I switch off the Web Shield on Avast (Mac side).

    Is anybody able to make any suggestion as to why this would happen and what I can do to restore the internet connection other than by temporarily stopping the Web Shield (which is what I am doing at the moment)?

    Please refrain from reminding me that Mac antivirus programs are doing more harm than good and I should just uninstall Avast. I already know, thank you very much.
    I also know that other AV programs are available that don't cause this problem.
    My question is how can I make this work (again) with Avast?

    Thanks

    If anybody bumps into this thread looking for a solution, I have resolved my problem by uninstalling Avast, reboot and re-install the latest version.
