I keep getting popups from Malware Bytes that say "data.rbtfy.com" has been blocked. It's very annoying and I want to make an exception for it so it will stop popping up, but I want to be careful because I don't know what it is. It says it's coming from Avast, my anti-virus. Any ideas on how I should address this?

 

Thank you.

First, read This Topic for allowing Web Exclusions from your program.
Next, follow the directions in This Topic to install a fresh version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware program.

Next uninstall or disable  Avast antivirus while you scan with ESET Online Antivirus - (See below)
Temporarily Disable your Antivirus

Run ESET Online Scanner.

  • For Internet Explorer users only, hold down Control  (Ctrl) and click on This Link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
  • Click the ESET Online button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
  • Click on esetsmartinstaller_enu. to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the esetsmartinstaller_enu icon on your desktop.
  • Check "YES, I accept the Terms of Use."
  • Click the Start button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Under scan settings, check "Scan Archives and Remove Threats"
  • Click Advanced settings and select the following:
    Scan potentially unwanted applications
     Scan for potentially unsafe applications
     Enable Anti-Stealth technology
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer.
  • Please be patient as this will take some time (2 hours is not unusual for a first scan).
  • When the scan completes, click List Threats
  • Click Export, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Click the Back button.
  • Click the Finish button.

NOTE:Sometimes if ESET finds no infections it will not create a log.
 

 

Copy and Paste any logs from these programs back here and tell us if there has been any change to your problems.

Hmm. I'm not seeing the problem anymore, so I guess it's not an issue. Thank you for your help however.

OK.

It may have been excluded from Malwaebytes Anti-Malware detections base.

 

Please start a new topic if you have other problems, as I will Unfollow this now that you seem to be happy.
