AVAST Update Blocks WoW Account

I always start my day by powering my PC and checking news sites. My AVAST Home Antivirus is doing its routine by automatically downloading and updating its virus signature to the latest available which is always great for this free software.

An e-mail arrived at my Windows Mail inbox coming from World of Warcraft’s billing informing me of my successful purchase of The Burning Crusade Patch. So I decided to check my WoW account at the official website to check my updated account and to download the Burning Crusade patch.

To my surprise, AVAST is blocking me! My antivirus told me that it blocked my access to World of Warcraft Account because it suspects it as a malicious site. I don’t have a clue as to who’s fault it is: World of Warcraft harboring malicious code? or AVAST having a false positive in WoW’s code?

AVAST forum is not helping me, the SMF forum software they used is having difficulty keeping my connection alive. “Connection Problems. Sorry, SMF was unable to connect to the database. This may be caused by the server being busy. Please try again later.” Could this be coming from disgruntled WoW player’s complaining of the alert?


AVAST Home edition is a free antivirus distributed by ALWIL Software.


  1. I was hoping I’d read a solution here LOL. I’m having the same problem.

  2. Hi Kaye, I haven’t posted the solution i did yet but here’s how i do it.

    Of course we cannot risk turning off AVAST as it may open our PC vulnerable to intrusion so we’ll leave AVAST running.

    What I did is go directly to Burning Crusade Download link that can be found here

    At the download page, you can log-in your account. Go and login.

    After loggin in, you can now click on the link going to your Account Management.

  3. hey can someone help me here!! my comp keep and going restart it really piss me off

  4. @renorl

    there’s a lot of reason why your comp kept on restarting.

    check your PC’s fan, one might stop working which may cause overheating.

    driver compatibility is also a factor, update drivers of video and mobo.

  5. Blood and also Unholy are the two alternatives that will death knights can choose from when it comes to talent specializations. As DPS is actually enormously high, Blood is really a much better option, but then you do hold the capability of gaining a specific amount of your damage and get back your former well being.
