    I just recently downloaded and installed Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 3.8.3.2965(current version) in one of my computers, and it works fine.

    I don't know where you downloaded it from and what you did with it, so I don't know why you're having a problem with it.

    I didn't click on your webpage link because I don't know if it contains any malicious content.

    I installed the newer version after quaranteening over 100 PUP threats. So to get this message now indicates something is not right. Do you think uninstalling Malwarebytes fix this. Perhaps I can later download it again. what say you?

    Looks like Malwarebytes is blocking a potentially malicious website. Please do this...

    ---------------------------------------------------
    Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST)

    Download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

    Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system, download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, and that will be the right version.
    • Right-click FRST.exe/FRST64.exe then click "Run as administrator"
    • When the tool opens, click Yes to the disclaimer.
    • Press the Scan button.
    • When finished, it will produce logs called FRST.txt and Addition.txt in the same directory the tool was run from.
    • Please copy and paste the logs in your next reply.

    ---------------------------------------------------

    In your next reply, please include:
    • FRST.txt
    • Addition.txt

    I usually get a notice on the page that a new version is ready to be installed and ask if I want to download it. so being that I had not done a scan for a while I click "download". That`s all I can tell.

    Flavallee I just decided to uninstall malwarebytes and it appears that my problem is gone. I do not get the message when I open a new site.
    I`ll keep you posted on what happens now. I do know however that I need protection and will wait a few days and reinstall it.

    As always thanks

    iMacg3 is a Malware Specialist who has replied to you, so I'll leave you with him.
    I'm not a Malware Specialist, so I can't help you any further in this section.
    Good luck.

    It looks like the URL being contacted was potentially unwanted/malicious and Malwarebytes blocked it.

    Please follow the instructions in my previous post to run FRST and post both logs in your reply.
