I trusted the forum and ran the delete. Worked fine. Chest now empty. I had loaded a disputed program, GLIMS, which the publisher says is not malware and Avast said it is. It was one step short of impossible to delete all its files except for Avast. Now finally gone. Thanks for the encouragement!

Is this normal? When I browse google chrome with avast on some sites I see one check mark on some sites but on other sites I see multiple checks.

It used to not do this. Now it does all of a sudden.

Is this a virus?

see photos below








im paranoid because I am the admin on a forum and there were polish spammers and I stupidly clicked on their links (the avast webshield was on) i put the links in google translate and they were dumb lose weight spam and viagra spam (Sorry to get  graphic  :)

But I ran avast immediately and it said their were no viruses.

Is this normal?

should I worry?

thank you very much for your help and time :)

Those are "ratings" from Avast Online Security plugin that checks links in search results. And also provides info about visited sites - there should be small Avast icon in toolbar of the browser. Green is good, red is bad. More details in FAQ - https://www.avast.com/en-us/faq.php?article=AVKB18#artTitle

However more "icons" on the same line seems as a bug...
Quality is also a feature.
