Website Blocking - Detecting Avastsvc.exe as malware?


Recommended Posts

I am running Avast Free with its web site scanner along with Malwarebytes Pro. Went to a few malicious sites and MBAM Pro detected the sites as malicious by listing the site number and then also Avastsvc.exe. Is that just saying it blocked the malware domain and then stopped Avast service? Because the popup is confusing.

Thanks in advance!

Hello and :welcome:

This is normal, please see our FAQ RIght HERE and look at the section that states Why is Malwarebytes' blocking my antivirus?

OK, I read that but then saw this lengthy back and forth which was very confusing.

Basically, my take-away is that MBAM is NOT blocking Avast service but the popup is obviously confusing users so perhaps remove the Avast block message since it really isn't blocking it! Just a suggestion so future customers don't freak or bother MBAM tech folk.

Thanks.
