avast! has been finding a lot of Malware lately...
« on: April 20, 2015, 03:16:54 AM »
And it's kind of scaring me. Usually it hardly ever finds anything, I only assume because my computer is good and clean. But right now it seems like it's finding something almost every other click. And it's not just because I'm on a bad site. This was happening right here on these forums, google.ca, Google+. It's just finding Malware everywhere. Is this anything I should be concerned about?

Same as always: "Threat has been detected!" And the actual notification itself says; "Avast WebShield has blocked a harmful webpage or file." They've all been random sites from Chrome so far and I haven't had any actual issues, it's just the frequency of notifications itself that are kind of.. I don't know.. Paranoying me. I don't like seeing so much Malware. I'm not used to this.

Well you could have been more clear with that. I don't even know where to find them. :/ I'll check before I post this though.

Alright, so I found the logs but I don't know which one(s?) you want.
