    Avast blocking pcper forums as malware threat

    One of my other PC's has Avast free edition running. When I try to open the pcper forums Avats blocks it from opening claiming malware.

    Only people pay taxes, and people pay as consumers every tax that is assessed against a business."

    It may think the Lightning Round part of the forum is not "PC" correct, thus you are blocked. haha

    Don't feel bad about this, my Malwarebytes did the same thing. If you have the option to edit the software to allow the sites to visist, do that first. Or just drop Avast.

    Same with me. Only forums is blocked, but it is all of the forums. IE 9, Avast Free, and Windows 7. I am using an old system with Vista right now, IE 9, and Avast Free and it works fine.

    Seems to have fixed itself.
