I think he forgot to upload some screenshots of this problem.  I'm having the same problem.   :P

I did report the URL:Phishing notice with the link, but I wasn't sure if it was a bad link or a false positive.  I'd like to hear from Avast to see what they think.

If it was a false positive and you reported it, you would have heard something.
