Avast constantly blocking url when using Google search
« on: December 07, 2012, 03:47:44 PM »
I know this problem has already been addressed with other users. I have the same issue and can't seem to get rid of it. Every time I perform a Google search in a Firefox browser, the Avast Network Shield detects and blocks a malicious URL. When I click on a link that I have searched, sometimes it will redirect but not always. It has the same "ppcnewsfeed.com/feed?" as the other user had.
I also downloaded and ran AdwCleaner, MBAM, OTL, and aswMBR. Logs are attached.
The problem hasn't ever occurred with IE9.
Thanks in advance for your help!

Bob

Run OTL
