I just logged in a bit ago, & my alarm has stopped! HALLELUJAH!!!!

I'm happy BK pointed out this Thread to me, 'cuz none of my buddies were having the same problem!

I use Firefox & Avast, & I'll keep using Avast, 'cuz It's found crap in my system the other have missed or let in. I like it, it's Pro-grade, & I knew that my PC wasn't infected, even tho' the alarm was driving me mental!!
I like Malwarebytes too! It's also Pro-grade. I used to use it all the time while I was using other Anti-virus.
I checked at Norton, & they had no record of the said Malware, which doesn't surprise me, it's let crap into my PC b4, which is why I'll never use it as a Anti-virus again.

Having an anti-virus system doesn't mean your comp can be 100% free from all sorts of viruses. Sometimes, allowing untrusted publishers can also be a threat [e.g. when you click "allow" or "continue" when an unidentified publisher is trying to install something on your comp]. If the infected file has already been installed on your comp, some anti-virus systems might not be able to detect it [since some virus can automatically hide].

Some ads can be dangerous as well. [e.g. ad for "Personal Anti-Virus" - a fake anti-virus that contains a critical Trojan.]

In closing, I'd like to say that Avast is very good, and I'd recommend it. In fact, sometimes it is OVERprotective, but in a good way. :-).
It's not a system hog like Norton either. Thumbs up for Avast.

Yeah, got it too. But it's harmless, just annoying.

about a year ago, when I visit crunchyroll the fake Norton anti virus would pop up occasionally....but ever since then it stopped happening. I have no complains.
