Just done a
« on: September 21, 2012, 05:23:44 PM »
bootscan and it didn't show any threats.  Showed I have a corrupted archive from Excel which I never use.

I had just signed onto this forum and I immediately got another red popup saying threat detected.  Is this Avast's way of trying to get people to buy the paid version?Infection Details

avast! blocked the virus:
hxxp://urlfilter.vmn.net/vmnsbf/data/120921093944-m.zip|1209...

Virus Lab research shows that more than 80% of malware (viruses, trojans, worms, spyware) now spreads via the internet. More notably, only 1% of this number comes from suspicious or ‘dodgy’ sites – about 99% spreads via legitimate websites that have been hacked.

I tried to get a screen shot of the popup but didn't work.

Uninstall the  Anti-phishing Domain Advisor       reboot and the alerts should go

Midnight has more topics on this than you can shake a stick at, very hard to keep up, already suggested disabling Anti-phishing Domain Advisor and see what happens in one of her other topics.
