a new problem arose for me today as a virus is repeatedly attempting to shut down my free version of avast. it is incredibly annoying as it minimises whatever im doing to display the alert, which is hidden offscreen (i think this may be the virus also, and it is definately offscreen not just minimised)
at first i thought it might be a problem with avast itself and proceeded to remove and reinstall it. however i found that the avast website was completely blocked by this virus (if its the same one) i can confirm this since my netbook can access it fine as can my phone, the comp can only access the site while in safemode with networking.
another problem arose when i finished reinstaling, one of the shields (mail one) was turned off and could not be turned on, it said that avast had to be run to turn it on, but avast was of course running to display that message in the first place. unless im missing something
and the old problem persisted still.
i also did a full scan with antimalwarebytes in safemode and avast also, they could not find the virus causing this so i am stumped. as normally on the rare few cases where the scan didnt work i could identify the virus, and look how to remove said virus, but i cannot even identify this one and i could not find any useful information at all.
does anyone know what i can do to get rid of this virus?
