CLEAR THE BAD TOOLBARS

Download AdwCleaner from here to your desktop
Run AdwCleaner and select Delete



Once done it will ask to reboot, allow this
On reboot a log will be produced please attach that

Did not know I had  Anti-Phishing Domain Advisor installed, but found it when I went to ADD or REMOVE PROGRAMS.   i removed it and have not had a reoccurance of the warning.  Thank you Essexboy!!!

I was having the same issue. Yay!! No more pop-ups!!!

I'm also experienced the same thing. It's never happen before, but lately the signs of warning always come out. I've already checked using others antivirus showing there's no virus in my pc. yet, it stills pop up and it disturbs my works.

Hello,
it is still the same story: non-crypted database of malicious URLs used by visicom antiphishing.

I have been bombarded with similar pop-up pointing to the same purported virus/malware since about 4-5 days. And the threat was about the URL http://urlfilter.vmn.net/vmnsbf/data/121118112548-m.zip|121118112448-m.list and  it was reported to reside in my PC @ C:\ProgramData\Anti-PhishingDomainAdvisor\visicom_antiphishing.exe.

And I checked for the program through Control Panel-->Programs--->Programs And Features(in Vista) and, indeed, I found  "Anti-Phishing Domain Advisor." I have just un-installed  it and hope that I have seen the last of Avast Threat Pop-ups.

It is possible that if you got two anti-virus programs in the same computer, one might fight the other. As they say, there can not be two swords in a single sheath!!!!

those with same problem can try run AdwCleaner as it seems to remove the visicom antiphish toolbar and all registry keys

I received an email yesterday from a person who attended my Security Seminars asking for help on this problem before I realized that we already had this thread.
I've now asked that person if he happened to remember what started his problem.
Will report back if I get an answer. :)

Unfortunately no help this is what I got back from my inquiry:


"Hi Bob,
I dont know how this program got into my CP, I have been getting this notice for about 2 weeks maybe, I am very careful about installing stuff. If had not remembered your email, I would be lost, I really did not know what I should do, I thought Avast would take it, in fact I wrote Avast, but I dont think it went thru, so I looked at my Avast account and I had saved your information. I wish I could help you with this, but I used Revo, to uninstall, it seems to be gone.
Thanks,
Jerry"


Hopefully someone else will be able to enlighten us.  :)

if you have a malware problem, follow the guide on top of the virus and worms forum section
