Avg keeps flagging about URL=Blacklist being a threat and has been blocked  asks to activate virus scan which we do.  It comes up as clear and safe but 10 seconds later the warning pops up again..
We have AVG Security installed. Please help..

Hi Bev,

Thank you for providing the screenshot.
On checking, I see that the threat is coming from click-now-extra-special.online website.
Which was detected as unsafe by the AVG.
I kindly request you to not visit unsafe websites for your safety
To remove the threat kindly reset your default browser with steps given below:

Browser Settings -> Advanced -> Rest and clean up -> Restore settings to the original defaults.
