I am having a problem with Avast security software being overzealous. I cannot access my Yahoo! email because of Avast. Why could this be happening, and how do I fix this error?

Any website that you consider to be safe can be put into an exclusion list on Avast. Open Avast and go to settings and add Yahoo! email in your exclusion list.

Sometimes it stops you from running a program or accessing the web page, which you know is safe because of the low application occurrence within the Avast community. Therefore, Avast can’t properly tell if the program is safe or not, and will try to protect you.

Here's the solution 

  • Open Avast
  • Click on 'Settings' (upper right corner of the page)
  • Click on 'Troubleshooting' > 'Redirect Settings' 
  • Clear all the port #'s from each field
  •  Check 'Ignore Local Communication'
  • Click 'OK' & close Avast

Or you can even try this solution: 

  • Open your Avast and go to Settings
  • In the first tab ‘General’ > ‘Exclusions.’
  • Add program (File paths) or website (URLs) you want to unblock
  • Confirm by clicking ‘OK.’
