    I have been getting the same Eset Smart Security popup for 2 days every time I open a browser: "Address has been blocked". It is always the same address. The knowledge base directed me to enter advanced setup/user interface/alerts and notifications. Put a checkmark in "display only notifications requiring user interaction". Restarted the computer. Still getting the same popup. What is happening? Does anyone know? How do I get that popup to stay away. Thanks.

    Hello and welcome to Wilders :)

    It actually sounds like you are infected with something.
    Below is what I recommended to another user with similar symptoms.

    1. Make a full scan with ESET Smart Security updated with the latest Sig database.
    2. After that download Malwarebytes and make a quick scan.

    If NOD32 finds anything put it into the quarantine and see if the infection is gone by opening your browsers.
    If it's still there then download Malwarebytes and make a quick scan.

    I'd suggest contacting customer care and providing them with a SysInspector log for perusal.
