Threat Secured - PowerShell
« on: January 01, 2024, 06:06:35 PM »
AvastOne keeps identifying this threat. I am pretty sure it's a thing that is trying to check the "Use a proxy server for LAN" box which then messes up my internet browsing.
I want the threat eliminated but that is not an option.
"Scan my PC" does not find anything.
I have run MalwareBytes and AdwareBytes but this issue wont go away
If i close the window, it pops up again a minute later.

What should I do?
