I've been having this problem with the Alureon rootkit for a long time now. I originally suspected a virus because of slow performance from my computer (which was especially strange because I have a SSD), so I downloaded the free version of Malwarebytes. It detected Alureon but couldn't get rid of it, so I scanned with MSE to see if that could get rid of it. It couldn't, of course. I then downloaded Windows Defender (something like that), which couldn't get rid of it either, so I gave up and it's just been lingering on my computer for who knows how long. I recently downloaded avast, which also can't get rid of it, but keeps reporting these malicious URLs every minute or so. I like to think they're keeping them at bay, but they're getting annoying. I was hoping you guys could offer your advice on this situation. Thank you in advance.
Oh, and these are what Avast keeps warning me about every damn minute: (obviously don't click on the url)
