    Hi
    There is this website that I go on a lot and my AVG antivirus free Keeps popping up telling it has detected a threat.
    Please tell me how to tell my AVG antivirus free this website is okay? Thank you

    Are you referring to the AVG Link Scanner?

    Try submitting the URL to VirusTotal to see what other scanners think.

    How do you know the site is OK? Have you submitted the link to VirusTotal?

    Hi Kevin39,

    Are there any options to click on those alerts?

    The text reads "Please select how to deal with these threats", so I would imagine there is an option on that screen to white-list them (i.e. tell AVG the site is OK).

    I don't think you want to allow that site if they're serving up a fake flash player update exploit. What is the full URL? I can't make it out on the screenshot.

    Select the complete URL in your browser's address bar.

    Right-click and Copy it.

    Go to VirusTotal.

    Click on URL.

    Point inside the URL bar right next to "Enter URL" and right-click again. Select Paste.

    Click Scan it!
