Disable NetLock, try again.

These indicate you're not properly connected and that you're behind a firewall which is rejecting too much.

Four simple things:
There's a guide to AirVPN. Before you ask questions, take 30 minutes of your time to go through it.

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here. It's the fallback DNS.
Running TOR exits is discouraged. They're subject to restrictions on the internet and harm all AirVPN users.

Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, you'll be unique among the mass again.

Unsure if this will help but the last few weeks I had been getting problems with qBittorrent where I would be downloading fine and the shift to a new site or page in my browser and everything would freeze up. My only way out was to exit both browser and qBittorrent choose a new server in AirVPN and then open my browser and qBittorrent again. Sometimes this solved it for the session and sometimes I would have to repeat. Now I only use AirVPN and QBittorrent for a couple of hours daily the rest of the time I am on an open connection. I had tried to find out what was causing this but not being a tekkie type I found no solutions. However three days ago I visited the qBittorrents site and found the following post and which I implemented the advice offered and have had no problems since (touch wood). I thibk it had something to do with UPn'P being on but like I say not sure. Hope it helps anyway. https://qbforums.shiki.hu/index.php/topic,7101.0.html

More like uTP. This one is known to cause strange behavior of torrent clients in a VPN tunnel.
