Probably malware/virus not detected by avast
« on: April 24, 2024, 04:20:41 PM »
Since yesterday I noticed a popup window screen by avast noticing me, that a register.starhome.io site access was blocked and the exe trying it is called by Node.js.exe, located at  C:\Program Files (x86)\WindowsNetService\
The problem is, avast does not detect anything, in case I ask for manual virus control.
Help please, I do not want to reinstall the whole windows, but this popup is appearing randomly...
Still happy for it. :)

Thanks for any help.
Btw. I found this:
