    Hello.

    Since yesterday I'm getting warnings like these:

    http://i39.tinypic.com/281y0av.jpg

    I thought it was a virus, so i scanned my system with Malware Bytes. The program scanned 6 infections and deleted them..

    But.. I'm still getting these warnings! :oops:

    I scanned again with Malware Bytes and with ESET.. 0 infection

    I believe ESET is blocking an suspicious internet adress.
    Can somebody tell me how to stop this 'internet adress' attacking my PC?

    By the way, I'm only getting the ESET pop-up while I'm in Firefox.

    Thanks.

    Hi.

    Yes, I only get it when I'm browsing.

    I cleaned browser cache, but didn't help. Still getting the warnings :(

    Hello Muse16,

    There may be something on the machine that's calling that URL but the http scanner has blocked it. It may be a page known to host malware.

    You might want to open a case with support. Include the "Detected threats" log and a link to this thread. They'll be able to take a look and offer help.

    BFG

    Yes sounds like a hosts file issue.

    Looks like a little old post.

    But if you got the solution from ESET support, say to us. So we can share this to other people with same problems :D
