    Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 1.50 GB
    Available Physical Memory 536 MB
    Total Virtual Memory 3.00 GB
    Available Virtual Memory 1.69 GB

    I installed AVAST Free Antivirus Version 5.0.677

    Enabled the REAL-TIME SHIELDS (which include 7 options) all listed below:

    File System Shield
    Mail Shield
    Web Shield
    P2P Shield
    IM Shield
    Network Shield
    Behavior Shield

    I'm only able to enable 6 of the 7 Shields without locking out all internet web page traffic loading.
    Every time I enable the WEB SHIELD it prevents any pages loading.

    My questions are why, how do I correct it & what exposure does it present not having it enabled???

    Any help to resolve these issues would be really appreciated.!
