    These past few days, Avast is behaving very weird. It pop-ups URL:Mal for around twice a day. Until this morning, it gets excessive. I am now receiving URL:Mal pop-up in an interval of 3 minutes and it is very annoying. Avast displays a number or web address although it flashes frequently the URL:Mal

    This problem is happening on all the browsers I’ve used. Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, and even the newly installed Microsoft Edge seems to be affected by this URL:Mal

    I have made several runs of my Avast program but it didn’t find any issue inside the PC. Please help me.

    Jason81, Thanks for the tip man. Scanning with Malwarebytes seems to solved the problem. It found Trojan Dedep Generic on my computer. After restarting, Avast never bothered me on URL:Mal again. Adwcleaner also finds a couple of adware and browser redirect. Generally, I feel that PC is safe now.
