Hi, I've been using Avira free antivirus for a few months and today it has started popping up a window - Website Safety Advisor. It looks a bit suspicious because it just tells me what it's supposed to do and then asks am I excited about this, yes or no. I have the feeling it could be adware as it simply won't go until I click on it. Any ideas?

Avira is quite good compared to some of the other freebees - but of later (last 3 months) it has become much more invasive with their own advert reminders. I have not yet found a way to block them - and will guess that an organisation like Avira has made them "unblockable" in the hope that users will get the paid-for version that should be free of such things

I ran malware bites and the problem seems to have righted itself. Thanks to everyone for the interest, and if I have any difficulties again I'll definitely go back to Avast, they were good. Just that the hard drive had to be wiped and it came back with Avira installed.
