Thanks,it worked. 
Lauris ZgirskisLauris Zgirskis
It worked for a while,but now it works partially, blocks twitter short adresses - like https://t.co/xxxxxxxx.
This site can’t be reached
The connection was reset.

Lauris, are facing this issue after turning off the enable tracking detection?
Lauris ZgirskisLauris Zgirskis
No,if I turn off tracking detection then everything is fine. But If i do this it turns off tracking protection,right?
Santhosh PannerselvamSanthosh Pannerselvam (Avast)
Lauris, we have escalated the case to our senior team.

We will get back to you once we get a reply from them.

Your patience is appreciated.

Hello Lauris,

We appreciate your patience.
We would like to clarify about the "Enable Tracking Protection" option available in AVG Anti-Track product.
If you have this option enabled, then real-time tracking will be done while you browse.
If it is disabled, then the continuous tracking can't be achieved, instead it will be done at regular intervals.
We would like to know whether the issue with sites happens on all of the browsers?
Do you have the browsers up to date?
Did you reinstall AVG Anti-Track prior disabling "enable tracking detection" option?
Lauris ZgirskisLauris Zgirskis
Yes,it happens also in Firefox and IE. Yes,all browsers are up to date. Reinstalled as per instructions 2 times and then it worked for only for 10 minutes. This programm needs a fix.

Appreciate your efforts so far, Lauris.
Please disable 'Enable tracking detection' option in settings as suggested to resolve this.
If you disable this setting, your browser remains protected, but AVG AntiTrack does not gather data during tracking attempts.
Lauris ZgirskisLauris Zgirskis
Ok, but i want to know if this issue will be fixed?
AvinashAvinash (Avast) 
Lauris, I'm afraid this is not an issue.
With 'Enable tracking detection' enabled, the tracking is logged in real time which is slowing down the websites loading.
As informed in our earlier post, it is safe to turn off this feature.
Lauris ZgirskisLauris Zgirskis
But then this product is not fully functionable, because I want to see which websites is tracking me?
Dinesh KrishnanDinesh Krishnan (Avast)
We understand your concern, Lauris. Unfortunately, this is the workaround that is available currently. However, it should list the websites tracking at regular intervals. Thank you for your understanding in advance!

It's over a month when I faced these problems, but nothing is changed. what's new?
Santhosh PannerselvamSanthosh Pannerselvam (Avast)
Lauris, we are sorry for the delay in response.

From your previous posts, we could see that you wish find websites which attempts to track you.

For a more extensive view of your tracking history, select Reports from the left-side panel and click the Tracking History tab.

Let us know, if you need further help.

But if tracking detection are disabled? and what about these websites - 

*https://t.co/xxx (twitter)
AvinashAvinash (Avast) 
Lauris, we'd like to reiterate that disabling this feature will not stop AVG AntiTrack from tracking your online activity.
It just would not log the tracking in real time. You can still look at the tracking history as suggested by Santhosh in his last message.
Lauris ZgirskisLauris Zgirskis
I want to use fully working product, is it too much to say? It's not free software,so I paid money. Disabling [Enable detection] turns off all detection and there is nothing to see in track hystory. I'm starting to loose my patience to you guys,unfortunately.
