The webmail interface is the portal your mail provider has set up for
accessing your email with a browser. If your mail provider has not
set up a webmail portal, you can achieve the same effect by going to http://mail2web.com
Your Avast antivirus was probably installed with its default install option.
If so, uninstall it, then reinstall, but select 'custom' install, which then
allows you to unselect installing its troublesome email scanning module.
While Avast is uninstalled, try Windows Mail again, just to verify that
the culprit has been found.
