I need some help. I use avast anti-virus. When I'm online a popup from Avast keeps repeating the same message about Malware that has been blocked. I have run Avast Anti-Virus and Malwarebytes and neither is picking it or anything up. Both say I am virus and malware free??? Here is the display I get from Avast:



I would appreciate any help to get rid of this malware unless it isn't malware??
Thanks again, in advance, for you kind assistance.

Malware etc.
by pgc3 / October 29, 2014 1:00 AM PDT

Boot to safe mode with networking and run a scan with Malwarebytes, see if that does the trick. Another suggestion would be to purge and reload your A/V software..or go to another A/V software that is more in depth than what you have, some of the freebies are decent to a point but have limitations, especially in real time. There have been MANY discussions on what to and what not to use, so I will not discuss further, of course surfing habits also come into play..

Another thing to always try
by orlbuckeye / October 29, 2014 5:56 AM PDT

is to go into Programs in Control where you remove programs and order it by date with the newest on top. If you see something you didn't install you can uninstall it there. Then run Antimalware bytes.
