:welcome: to Bleeping Computer.

avast! Infection blocked alert

Infection blocked...Relax, your avast! just saved you from a virus. Protect yourself against other types of threats by upgrading now.


That warning is from avast! Network Shield indicating a malicious URL was blocked. With this particular detection, avast! generally provides specific details identifying the URL and possible infection.

Keep in mind that even legitimate web sites and the ads they display can be a source of infection.avast! is doing it's job by blocking the URL providing this warning... it does not necessarily mean your computer has been infected.

Usually when a computer is infected with malware there will be indications (signs of infection) that something is wrong.
