ANSWERED Avast Updater URL blocked

Recommended Posts

When I boot my computer, (An HP all-in-one desktop using Windows 10), Avast attempts to contact apps.api.slimwareutilities.com

The results in Malwarebytes Premium reporting "Website blocked due to PUP"

I believe this is a false positive. If so can you tell me how to get Malwarebytes to ignore it please? Previous attempts to do so seem to jave had no effect as it still blocks the site every time I boot.

Thanks, Bill in Oz

Thanks. I'm assuming the block prevents that part of my Avast protection from working, so a fix would be appreciated.

Hi Bill,

We are still detecting some of the Slimware apps, but the block on the domain has been removed. :)
