I've been trying to get this issue resolved and I've been at the Avast forums but I'd thought I would check here as well.  

 

I occasionally get popups from Avast that say that it has blocked an attempt by svchost.exe, and the site it is apparently trying to reach is freeresultsguide.com. 

 

I've run Malwarebytes, OTL, aswMBR, Combofix, Adwcleaner, Farbar, Rkill, Tdsskiller,Silentrunner, and Spybot. 

 

The problem occurs intermittently.  Sometimes I can go for a day or two and then I get four in a row, and a few times, LITERALLY, 31 in a row.  

 

Here is what avast shows me

by clicking on the 'more details' - I see this:

Any ideas?

It is now fixed.  A great user at the Avast! forums helped me out.

It appears that this issue is resolved, therefore I am closing the topic. If that is not the case and you need or wish to continue with this topic, please send me or any Moderator a Personal Message (PM) that you would like this topic re-opened.
