Where would be a good place to discuss different antivirus software? (Here it is kind of biased towards Malwarebytes...)
For the past month, Avast has been blocking threats in Chrome, usually with the same log description as the screenshot I've attached. I did a scan with Malwarebytes and it couldn't find any threats so I decided to start a free trial to activate real-time protection. Now Malwarebytes constantly gives me notifications that it has blocked redirects/pop-ups from www.tradeadexchange.com and popcash.net. I reinstalled Firefox and immediately upon opening it, Malwarebytes blocked the redirect so I don't believe this a Chrome issue. I have tried disabling Adblock/Ublock from Chrome but it has not made a difference. Avast, AdwCleaner, Windows Defender, and Spybot have not found any real threats beyond browser cookies. I even purchased Hitman Pro but it too has not turned up anything concerning. I don't have any unknown programs or processes and according to Avast's logs, this issue began around August 4th, 2017. No significant changes were made to the system at this time and I did not install any unknown programs. Today's Malwarebytes log shows two new domains blocked: www.liveadexchanger.com and www.1-1ads.com. the 8/31 log shows a threat from preview.ibb.co. I also added the following to my hosts file but it hasn't made a difference: 127.0.0.1 www.tradeadexchange.com 127.0.0.1 popcash.net Any help in getting rid of this annoying issue would be welcome. I'm tired of seeing threat notifications. I am currently scanning with Sophos Virus Removal Tool and will post the log here when it's finished.
