Hi,
I created a website on wix.com that is connected to my domain mcclinticservices[.]com www[.]mcclinticservices[.]com.
I am trying to find out why avast keeps popping up saying it is url:mal and is blocking.

help anyone.

thanks

Hallo!

First of all, report it here: https://www.avast.com/false-positive-file-form.php

It can take a few days. And someone from Avast team may come here and say if it was unblocked or not.  ;)

Probably your site was being flagged for PHISHING, as IP is: https://checkphish.ai/ip/38.18.228.128
Also consider: https://aw-snap.info/file-viewer/?protocol=not-secure&tgt=www.mcclinticservices.com%2F&ref_sel=GSP2&ua_sel=ff&fs=1

Wait for an avast team member to come and give a final verdict, as they are the only ones to unblock,
