Network Shield blocks Superantispyware Forum
« on: November 03, 2012, 10:43:04 PM »
I use Free Superantispyware to do a scan once a month as a check. Just saw that there was a program update, so was going to the forum to read about it before I tried to install. When I clicked on the link to the forum hxxp://forums.superantispyware.com , got an Avast popup saying the site was blocked. Looked in the Avast program and found under Network Shield that the Last Block Connection was hxxp://forums.superantispyware.com . I guess I am ok since it was blocked. Wanted to know if anyone else saw this? Busy weekend with this and piriform.

I am sorry but after reading am confused, it reads like it is a false positive and then like it might be real. In simple words what is it? Thanks

Never take it as a F/P until Avast! says so. I didn't.

Unfortunately we have only had one VPS update since last night when I reported it as a F/P. You know weekend a all.

We are all waiting for Avast! veredit.
