    My virus scan is flipping out every time I load a page here. Anyone know why?

    I've been using avast for a while now. I've been inactive for a few months now but I know I had avast last time I visited the site. Now it flips a shit every time I come here. Is this happening to anyone else? I trust CA but the only time I've ever gotten a virus before was from a site I did not expect it to come from. This is just totally random and unexpected...

    There's a thread about this in the support forum, evidently it's been happening for a lot of people... Seems to maybe be a hack of some sort?

    (I haven't had it happen but I'm usually browsing on a tablet...)

    I already said this in the Support thread, but almost every time this happens to me, after that I find a virus in my AppData folder (so, it might be worth scanning your computer). This also happens in my homeputer that works on Avast alone, but not my workputer that has Windows Defender supported by Avast (and which works on Windows 7).
