Every 20ish minutes, avast pops up saying web shield stoped connection to this website it says is a scam. I’ve done a full system virus scan with Avast, and it didn’t find anything. I updated the Avast application (definitions were up to date already) and it is still happening, and didn’t find anything again. Downloaded Malwarebytes and it found a couple of things that I’m not convinced weren’t false positives, but it’s still happening. Any tips on finding what is causing this?
My guess is that it’s a virus that is checking in with a server over a set amount of time, possibly to download viruses or who knows what. I’m not seeing any process running that seems out of place, though I’m a noob. The fishy-sounding ones to me I looked up and they’re fine.
