"Avast rang a "malicious URL blocked" warning"
Avast AV did not like the installation program
Win Vista Family Premium - Firefox 3.6.17
I am in France
Logged in to my CNET account.
Went to download.Expat-Shield/3000-2092_4-75211377.html page.
Clicked "Download now"
Allowed requested redirection to enable download
Scanned that file with Avast ("no threat detected") before running it.
Dvl-clicked that file to start installation.
Accepted the suggested default location -- my desktop
Started install process.
OK'd Win Defender's question abt allowing program to run.
Progress bar half-way through when real-time Avast rang the alarm bell and popped up:
"MALICIOUS URL BLOCKED
"avast! NetworkShield has blocked a harmful site.
"visit the avast! communityIO info portal for more information*
* I did not find more information.
An icon C:\...\Desktop\HSS-2.02-install-anchorfree-232-expatshield.exe had appeared on my desktop despite my aborting the install.
Deleted that file. Did not find any new folder or files from a partial (or complete) instatlation under C:\programmes or C:\program files (x86).
What to think? Is this "normal" and *acceptable* behaviour for ExpatShield?
