Continuing to get popup from Avast with same message
« on: October 23, 2023, 11:37:00 AM »
Over the last little bit, I keep getting an alert from Avast that it's blocking an attack. It says it's blocking "go.us-trendingtoday.com" from URL:Blacklist.

Now, I don't know what any of this actually means because this is outside of my wheelhouse. Yet I keep getting it over and over and over again. All I can learn is that it's coming from somewhere in Chrome, but I'm ADHD and have a lot of tabs open. I can't figure out which tab it is so I can close that one and get on with my life instead of having that alert pop up and scare the crap out of my wife.

Can anyone offer any guidance on WTF to do?

Thanks in advance.

Try clear Your browser history

In all major Internet browsers (e.g., Chrome, Edge, Firefox, IE, Opera), pressing Ctrl + Shift + Delete opens the Clear browsing data window to quickly clear private data and history

Does it still happen:
- If so try starting your browser with apps disabled.
Does it still happen:
If not, one of your add-ons would appear to be connecting to this site.
Now it is a bit of a pain, disabling one app at a time to find it.
Start with any app recently added and or apps recently updated.
