For the past hour I keep getting a pop up window

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

Malicious Website Blocked
Domain su2.ff.avast.com
IP: 92.242.140.21
Port 52695
Type: Outbound
Process c:\ProgramFiles\AVASTSoftware\Avast\AvastSvc.exe
ManageWeb Exclusions

I do use Avast for virus protection.  And a paid version at that. I have for years either free or paid.

So is Avast a problem now? Or is it Malwarebytes.

I may change all to PCMatic....

Please advise if you know.

It could be a virus trying to disable Avast.  I had one that disabled Norton once.   

Or, it could be a scam.  Sometimes pop-up windows will claim you have a virus and tell you do call a number or download a program to stop it.

Try doing a full system scan with Avast and then post the results, ok?

Avast smart scan as follows:

We found some issues**

Viruses and Malware  We didn't find any viruses or malware

**Software updater       Some of your software is not up to date

Browser Cleanup        You have no bad add-ons in your browsers

Home Network Security  You have no  compatibility problems

**Performance Issues      Your PC's performance needs optimization

                                           Resolve ALL  (this is a button to click)

                                               Rescan

I did not click the resolve all button... yet

I also ran, waiting for a reply to this

C-Cleaner
Super Anti-spyware
System Mechanic
and
Malware Bytes anti-malware.... All came out OK

You should be alright then...if you notice anything "off" about  the way your system is operating, then go ahead and post here again.

Thanks,

The only off thing is the annoying 20 to 30 sec pop ups of that window....

I did try to email AVAST and MALWAREBYTES and if I get a reply from them I'll let you know what they say.
