For the average person who is inexperienced I would agree, but the fact is AdBlockPlus or UBlock Origin does more than Avast ever will these days, the fact that I have been going there years, disabling Avast just to get t here, and never once having an infection should prove that much :) The fact that Avast is blocking it with a virus message, when there is in fact no virus detection happening at all makes me think they are being paid to block access to sites like this.
Avast isn't an Adblocker. It never claimed to be one. :)

I wasn't referring to popups when mentioning those other programs...they both have anti-malware lists that block known URLs as an added feature and it does a far better job at preventing those infections than Avast ever did.  I do some PC repairs and the most common thing is spyware removal, If I suggest the person installs Avast they will be back in a month with the same infections. If I install AdBlockPlus with the anti-malware lists, I don't hear back from them :)
