Could use some more info. So, Avast! can do it's thing. I assume your web browser can do it's thing. But other software cannot? What happens when you try to use programs that don't make it (besides can't access the internet, like messages, hangs etc.)? You might find some info in Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Event Viewer > Applications and System.

I assume you were talking about checking Windows Firewall exceptions and you are running no additional firewalls. If so, then could be malware or Windows is confused (or both). I would run error-checking (in safe mode if need be) on Windows drive. When that checks out and drive is ok, then could try a run of Windows Malicious Software Removal tool. If that all checks out clean and you still haven't found the problem then one of the programs you use online is whacked and is spoiling the others' fun. Uninstall offending software.

The easiest way to do it would be to open explorer/My Computer; right click drive icon, click Properties in menu. Click Tools tab, and then click Check Now.

Oh, and if Comodo wasn't properly uninstalled, some of its leftover registry settings might be the problem. Haven't used it, don't know how it affects system.

It does sound like you got something attaching itself to your executables. Avast might be immune because it protects itself. Strange that none of your scans picked it up though.

I would suggest trying to uninstall one of them and re-install it (make sure source is clean) to see if you can get it working. Messes left by trojans are a real pain to fix. If it is an option, I would suggest backing up any documents that you want keep and do a fresh install.
