HELP! STOP THE CONSTANT WARNING POPUPS?
« on: November 18, 2012, 05:13:09 PM »
Hello, I have used Avast Free Edition for many years. No problems till now.
My husband had this problem first, now I have the same problem.
Warnings keep popping up saying I have a trojan, doesn't matter what site I'm at.
I tried looking through the Avast site for a solution & didn't see where this is addressed although, I did see many posts about the problem when I googled it.
Just got another while typing a message on face book! Sigh, what is going on? I ran a scan with malwarebytes & advanced system care & nothing comes up.
We need help please?
Thanks so much!

Here is what it said:
Avast Webshield has blocked a harmful webpage or file
HTML:Script-inf
visicom_ antiphishing.exe
URl: http://urlfilter.vmn.net/vmnsbf/data/121...
Process: C:\ProgramData\Anti-phishing Domain Advi...
Infection: JS:ScriptSH-inf [Trj]
avast! blocked the virus

Thanks to all who helped, the problem is Resolved! :)
If you have this problem here's what I did:
I went to Control Panel> Add/Remove Programs> Located: "Anti-Phishing Domain Advisory"> Uninstalled it>>> No More Problem!!! :D

Are you using an antiphishing filter ? Anti-Phishing Domain Advisor

Over the past week I have had several pop ups saying a Trojan Horse has been blocked.  This is new, what is happening?

Anti-Phishing Domain Advisor has some suspect links which Avast does not like.  If you do not have that tool then look at the toolbars/addons that you have just acquired

I'm getting the same pop-up:

Infection Details
URL:   http://urlfilter.vmn.net/vmnsbf/data/121...
Process:   C:\ProgramData\Anti-phishing Domain Advi...
Infection:   JS:ScriptSH-inf [Trj]

Is this a false positive?  What do I need to do?

If it's in the vault leave it there. After several weeks re-scan (right click) while it's in the vault. Then and only then you can safely "restore" it to it's original
place. Keep in mind a copy will remain in the vault.  :)

I looked & found I also had  the "Anti-Phishing Domain Advisory" installed,  found it in ADD or REMOVE PROGRAMS!
I uninstalled it hoping that it'll solve the problem on ours too!
Q's: How did I get it?  Do I need one to replace it? Do you know if it came along with a program?
Thanks everyone for the HELP! Am so looking forward to no more pop up/warnings! :)

Not for quite some time, I can't remember the last time. I thought they were a good site to use tho?
The only things I know of that I've downloaded was updates on Malwarebytes, Advanced System Care & Avast.
I do have grandkids tho.....
Found it on the other computer too, uninstalled it, hoping, so far nothing on this one! Yea!
