what is this warning about?
« on: April 06, 2019, 02:10:52 AM »
today all of a sudden i'm getting this popup from avast telling me this http://ecp.yusercontent.com/ phishing and then i close it and without doing anything it pops up again. so i scanned the pc and avast did not tell me i had this phishing on my pc. so i ran clean and i still get it. and i have not visited anything outside of emails i opened earlier today and did not get this popup warning. so is this new or form avast or some phishing that looks like avast and giving me fits in hopes that i turn off avast .

i did not get this until today around 6pm. so i got back and look at old emails and it stipp pops up and earlier today it never popped up for them.  so do i need to uninstall avast and reinstall it or is avast bumping heads with another virus program i have running? i have defender and adware and ccleaner and malwarebytes. but i have had all this forever and this is the first phishing popup i have got ever. thanks
