I am recently facing an issue where I'm suddenly loss my internet connectin. The pattern that i found is this thing happen after I open facebook website with Edge Chromium. I tried to disable firewall from Avast Premium but still no internet connection until i restart my laptop. Then I found that whenever I restart my PC there is a program called Privacy Filter that prevents me to restart. I am still not able to locate and disable this program and not sure whether this programm is provided by antivirus or windows.

Operating System: Windows 10 x64

Antivirus: Avast Premium

  • IIRC that’s just the window title, not necessarily the program name. Note that the window could be hidden.

  • If you want my honest guess, it’s your AV, almost guaranteed.
