How can I look at a Warning that popped up earlier today?
« on: October 09, 2013, 08:22:19 PM »
About an hour ago I was on Care2.com and when visiting another members profile page a red Avast warning popped up telling me Avast had blocked a malicious URL, at least that is what I think it said.  The message said Avast saved my computer from becoming infected by malware.    On that profile page were many comment pics from those comment pic sites.  One contained the infected URL.  I am now being asked to give that specific info and cannot find a way to find it from within the Avast interface.  Is it possible to view that warning again?

Right click on the Avast icon in the taskbar and choose show last popup.

Right clicked on the avast icon in the tray and "show last pop-up message" was greyed out.  Was doing Windows updates and the system had been restarted.

Those other links are showing very scary info as I spend most of my time on that site.  Will pass on the URLs to the official help group host on the site.  Thanks for responding.

Is there any other way I can view that red warning pop-up?

There should be a log somewhere in the Avast files. But i cannot find it at the moment.

Maybe someone else knows where you can find it, im also running the newest Beta, maybe they changed it.

OK. Found the logs.

Go to Computer>C Drive>Program Data>Avast Software>Avast>Report

In the folder are logs for each Realtime Shield, in them you can find the Detections. If possible you can attach them
to your next post.

Sorry not sure how to attach the file, but have copied the relevant text from the log.  Thanks a million for guiding me to it.  It was in NetworkShield.txt

On this site you can look a the reputation of the site and what many AV vendors think about it.

Sometimes you have to reenter it if you have clicked some links (Virustotal and some others).

Some of them only accept this as link: hxxp://www.wallpaperfo.com/

On Care2.com every now and then someone's anti-virus pops up a virus warning for one of those comment pics that other anti-virus programs do not have a problem with.  People do not always post them properly and just hotlink them instead.  (And no, I do not know what that means)  Seems Avast was the only program that had a problem with that particular comment pic, so at this point I don't know what to do.  It has already been deleted from the persons profile page just in case it was infected.  So few of those links from the link you posted had a problem with that particular comment pic or the host site that I'm beginning to think Avast made a woopsie in reporting it as malware.

I'm extra careful these days as I had a nasty malware infection that took me 8+ weeks of 8-12 hour days to get my system back to being clean again.  What do you suggest I do now?  Who is polonus?
