Adware pretending to be Avast?
« on: December 22, 2014, 09:51:13 PM »
I think my PC is infected with adware. Every now and then a pop-up appears in the lower right corner of my screen trying to sell me extra Avast security products.

I know Avast would never do this, because they're dedicated to protecting my PC from distracting, unwanted software. So obviously someone has installed adware on my PC that's pretending to be Avast. Creepy, huh? I thought you might like to know about that.

Happy holidays (except for the pop-ups), Ander
