Cannot access websites {other than google, yahoo, gmail, youtube and facebook (http type}} on macbook air


A week ago I had installed avast antivirus plus avast vpn for about an hour. That exact moment I encountered this problem for the first time. Then I uninstalled avast by clicking the uninstall avast icon. The problem still persists. Then I didn’t turn on the mac for a day. When i did the problem went and mac went back to normal. And I started downloading the captain on the appstore. Then I shut down and restarted after some time. The problem returned and the download showed errors. Then again after 2 days I tried the same technique and the internet was alrito. But after turning it off and restarting the problem resumed. I am unable to view websites other than those mentioned above. Nor am I able to download apple apps or update them in the appstore. I tried Pram, safe boot, Nvprm etc … .. (I can see websites in safe boot mode, but not in normal mode)

Can anyone explain to me .. how to fix this ???

Assuming the problem lies in the fact that Avast has fine-tuned some connectivity settings, I recommend reinstalling the software, followed by another uninstall.

(((Avast has some good instructions to let us know that throwing it in the trash does not uninstall the software for Avast (I know your explanation of which you chose to uninstall, but I’m just copying the basics here)))))

Avast Official Instructions:

  • Click the Avast menu bar icon at the top right of the screen and select Open Avast to open the Avast user interface,
  • … Alternatively, open Finder, go to Applications and double-click the Avast icon.
  • Then click on Avast in the menu bar at the top left of the screen, select Uninstall Avast,
  • … And when prompted for confirmation to uninstall, click Uninstall.
