VirusTotal doesn't actually scan the site it just refers to black lists, at least the latter two do a scan it may not be conclusive.

The avast alert is reporting URL:MAL and this usually indicates the site or IP address is blocked (can happen if your domain is on an IP with many other sites, some of which may be infected). Or it could refer to a 3rd party URL linked to from your site.

You can submit a support ticket - Try the following:
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 24.6.6121 (build 24.6.9241.848) UI 1.0.809/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security
