Windows 7: Issue with Avast Firewall

Issue with Avast Firewall

My Avast firewall is being a pain in the arse and not allowing certain things to connect to online services like they should. I've made a video displaying the issue. If anyone has any pointers on this, that would be great. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Avast as well, and nothing has changed. It is not having this issue on my other Avast installation, on my other computer.
