Hello fellow Avasters. 8)

I have installed Avast recently and since then, Webshield is detecting malware sites like "g l o b a l b a b l o . tk/load.php?e=1", "p e t r o s y a n g o v n o .c o. c c/load.php?e=1" and flikade when I'm navigating in  sites like google and portal sites in my country.  :(

Please do you have any ideas? Thanks.

What country are you in?
Can you send me a private msg with 2-3 links that give you the warning?

What exactly is it that you want to know ? avast! is blocking access to those sites because they are malicious.

What I want to know is why those messages are coming since I'm not browsing through those sites. I was browsing the usual political blogs (hosted at blogspot and wordpress) and portal sites like w w w . u o l . c o m . b r

I have cleaned cache and historic and the problem keeps happening.

I sent the lines reported by Web Shield and Network Shield. I'm from Brazil and I use Windows XP SP3 with IE7.

The worst happened. I tried to acess windows system restore wich did not respond. Then I rebooted without seeing autoruns and Windows does not boot anymore even on safe mode. When I deactivate reboot on failure option the following message appeared: Windows logon process terminated...

I will try to figure out this problem and will come back here after to see the other problem.

Please go to PROFILE then Modify Profile then Forum Profile Information then Please select your country: then Signature: and put information about your system just like my signature about your system just like my signature so that the helpers can offer pertinent advice.

In Account Related Settings select Hide email address from public to prevent scammers and spammers harvesting your hotmail.com email address.

IE8 is much better and faster than IE7

Hello Avasters, cheers.

Does someone have some idea of what's happening. In a briefing I was navigating through normal sites and Web Shield reported repeatedly as if I was browsing through malware sites.

Pleaaaase, help.

Have you tried this ?

TFC - Temp File Cleaner by OldTimer
http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/files/file/187-tfc-temp-file-cleaner-by-oldtimer/
TFC requires a reboot immediately after running. Be sure to save any unsaved work before running TFC.

check for malware with this

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.46 http://filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/
always update so you have latest database before you scan
click the remove selected button to quarantine anything found
you may post the scan log here if anything is found

After todays Avast free update, the program reacts to the anonymouse.org website.
It calls it a malicious webpage, and refuse to visit any page currently "anonymoused", flagging it as malicious and putting the bookmarked url in its chest.

I tried visiting the url without using anonymouse, and got no malicious warning.
I then tried to visit the main anonymouse site and got a malicious warning right away.

It seems to me the latest update made Avast flag all sites using some form of forward - functions as malicious.

I have checked my computer using malwarebytes, and cannot find any malware whatsoever.
I therefore suspect this problem is true on all forms of url-forward, like the .tk - domain mentioned by the original poster.

Question:
Do avast have a whitelist to use until this error gets sorted out?

I am getting this too with anonymouse.org.  This must be a false positive because nothing is wrong with this proxy server.  Hopefully this will be fixed with the next update.

The anonymouse site was unblocked after the site cleaned some malicious information from the site.
