Avast free virus
« on: September 24, 2023, 05:36:34 PM »
Hi everyone. Every time I open my computer and go to Chrome, Avast notifies me of this virus. Can anyone help me get rid of it? Thank you

First break the link to a suspect site to avoid accidental exposure to the curious as I have in the quoted text, just post the domain name - not to mention is is actually promoting the site - web search engine crawlers.

I take it that you weren't intending to visit that domain - if not then it is likely in your browser cache or cookies.  Try clearing the browser cache and cookies, restart the browser and monitor.
Does that resolve it  ?

If not try running the browser with Add-ons/extensions disabled and report.
