Hotspot Shield URL
« on: October 06, 2010, 10:56:38 AM »
Is this a false alarm, for blocking URL's from hotspot shield. Means, im noticing this happening just today (06/10/10). It connects to the site, and then avast just keeps popping up, saying url has been blocked. Later on, to disconnect, i need to restart the computer, as avast wont allow me to disconnect, as it does not go to the site. Is this something new, or m i really infected in some way which i do not understand? ???

welcome to the forum first.

a few question

what version of avast are you using?

what was the url avast responded to as malware? please give us link but instead of www chance it to like wxw so other users won't be able to click on it and getting infected.
