new member here, and would like to say hello to everyone.

(i posted under different area and was directed to post here since i use an imac, so below is the problem).

i am using an old imac with os x version 10.9 and apple's latest operating system.

yesterday doing an internet search i clicked on and my avast software shield displayed saying infection detected with this information below:

infection JS:Redirector-BDP Trj
URL. zoneid=6&target=_blank&cb=963

i did a full system scan with avast and it did not show the infection, and the virus vault remained empty, but what i typed above was in the web history activity, so i know i still  have the infection.

i need to also know until this is cleaned and removed from my imac, will this infection redirect me to other web sites unknowingly, and am i at risk?

i am elderly, partially blind, disabled, and on a fixed small income and i am not imac savvy and have no idea how to clean this out of my imac.

 i would greatly appreciate step by step help from avast experts if at all possible, and thank everyone in advance, and hope they have a happy holiday.

The warning means it detected the infection on the webpage, and as such it blocked it, your machine was not infected, this is what is suppose to do, it detected a virus, blocked it and then informed you of that.

What exists in the web history is just the address of the infection not the infection itself.
