Normally the green is for HTTPS which is secure

Yeah they might be https addresses.

But post a screenshot of that window. We'll get better clarity.

That's just Avast's version of WOT (Web of Trust)
If you want to get rid of those bars, go into Avast, Settings, Cloud Services and uncheck Reputation Services
