URL:Blacklist

I am consistently getting a pop-up from my Avast software with the following threat, but I am completely unable to resolve it.  It seems like a router issue since I am having the same thing occur on both my desktop and laptop, so I have rebooted the router (Linksys EA9500E) repeatedly to no avail.

If you look at the bottom of your screenshot

URL = The blocked URL (seems like a windows update URL ... or is it fake?)

Process = Who is trying to connect to that URL



Report a false positive (select file or website)
https://www.avast.com/false-positive-file-form.php

Thanks for the information.  How do I go about addressing it?
