    Hi, what is the website that Avast says is a threat?

    Also, while you are here.
    Download Security Check by screen317 from.
    http://screen317.spywareinfoforum.org/
    Or
    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/securitycheck/dl/123/

    Save it to your Desktop.
    Double click the install icon.
    If using Vista - Win 7 - right click the install icon and select "Run as Administrator"
    A command Prompt window will open.
    Let it scan the Pc - press any key when asked.
    It should now open in Notepad.
    Copy and Paste the result of the scan in the reply box below.

    Hi, it would help us to know what website Avast is saying is a threat?
    ======
    You need some anti-spyware programs installed.
    Download MalwareBytes to your desktop.
    Download the Free version.
    MalwareBytes
    Once downloaded to your desktop.
    Close all open browser windows.

    Click on the Install icon - allow it to update during the install process.
    Start Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.
    Before you run a scan.
    Under Settings > Detection and Protection in the left pane.
    Under Detection Options - make sure that all three entries are ticked.
    Under Non-Malware detections - set to Treat detections as Malware.

    Now click - Scan button.
    Then select - Threat Scan.
    Then - Scan Now.
    If any infections are found during the scan, the number of them will be listed.
    When the scan is finished, make sure to select and remove Everything in the list.
    You may be prompted to restart to finish the removal process.
    If Yes - restart your Pc.

    Start Malwarebytes Anti-Malware again.
    Click History > Application Logs.
    Select the most recent scan log.
    Click View.
    Select Export >Text File.

    Kevin39,

    Why are you posting ?'s in this thread started by John43? It is impossible to help more than one at a time. Please start your own thread with the problems your having and do not jump into others threads.

    Thank you,
    Capt

    Yes it looks to be the same person.

    Why are you posting under two different usernames? We don't allow more than one account per user. Please advise which one you want to keep and I'll close the other.
