Anytime I try to visit google,yahoo,bing or any search engines I'm getting this avas alert below.
Posted Image

I've scanned the comp with several scanners Malwarebytes & Hijack this ,Hitman ect.. all the other popular ones in safemode ect.
Also avas and few online webbased scanners. Even tried that super spyware removal program on here.
It does not detect any malware. Reinstalled fire fox & chrome. Cleaned java cache,flushed dns cleared any temp files and all that good stuff.Ran CCleaner.

What I even found more bizarre was when I tried to do a who is search on that domain at http://who.is.
SURFERS! DO NOT VISIT THIS URL BELOW
http://www.who.is/whois/ppcadvertisinginfo.com
I PUT IT HERE FOR THE MALWARE REMOVAL EXPERTS TO LOOK AT AND FARTHER INVESTIGATE IF NEED BE.
Avas gives me a trojan alert when I do a who.is search on that domain,STRANGE.

I'd like to get it removed.
Sorta not sure what else to do.
I thought that who.is behavior was awfully strange though. LOL
Anyone have any ideas?

Welcome aboard Posted Image

I use Avast as well and those warnings are perfectly normal.
When your Google search page pop-up some links will trigger such Avast warning.
That's for your good.
