Does avast detect and block JS/TechBrolo.AA

I switched to W10 and haven't reinstalled avast.

Microsoft Windows Defender allowed both JS/TechBrolo.AA and Obrypser onto my computer even though they have known about both since early 2017.

Their forte is collecting money, not defending users.

Yes .... possible PUP detection must be turned on?   

A 100% correct answer can only be given by testing the exact files you have
( JS/TechBrolo = FakeAlert on infected websites)
(Obrypser = may change default home page and show ad popups)


No security program have 100% detection or zero false positives

The world of malicious programs is not static. Bad guys constantly make changes to there programs to avoid detection
