Hi I am running windows 8.1 with Avast free anti virus.
Since today almost every page I visit gets a pop up from Avast stating it has blocked an infection.
eBay ,Google and even your page was supposed to be infected.
Any idea why this is happening
Thanks in advance

What browser?  I'm suspecting a plugin or extension for video/audio or downloading helping or whatever is meddling, and Avast is calling the meddling software out on it.  Do you have Malwarebytes Anti-Malware?  If so, run it.  If not, wait for the BC techs here to give you much better more detailed advice.

If Internet Explorer is running ok, then simply keep an eye on the Google Chrome, and kinda sorta mentally note what the plugins and extensions are doing.

Well...it's possible that your installed Avast is damaged/corrupt.  I would uninstall it completely, then reinstall it, update, run a full scan...and see if phenomenon continues.

I have just ran Superantispywear which found 12 tracking cookies.

After closing Chrome  once again I am unable to open Chrome from anywhere, it looks like its thinking about opening but nothing happens.

Could this be a sign of a virus
