    I was bored and kinda drunk and was looking at garbage news on yahoo. (PLEASE don't judge. I was just some bored black dude lol). I am using avast protection.

    I was reading the comments and out of the blue I was redirected to a malicious site.

    Avast gave me the warning flag. A few minutes later i was going onto a homework assignment and I accidentally hit forward and went back to the site.

    avast blocked the threat again.

    My computer seems fine but could their be malware hidden? How can I find it? Could their be a 24 hour ransomeware (ie it won't infect until 24 hours later?)

    Are these normal programs in my screenshots?

    Should I check my library?

    Thank you for your time

    Do you ‘seriously’ expect people to click your links, after what your thread relates to.
    You may get more feedback if you actually show screenshots in the post :)

    No need to be snarky.

    You asked for advice; if someone chooses to respond to you, and takes the time and trouble to respond to your query, at least try to show them a little courtesy.

    Candidly, nobody is going to click on a link that might lead to them - in turn - becoming infected buy some sort of malware.

    You must appreciate that other people will be cautious if you are concerned you may be infected with malware.
    If this is the case, your attachments could be suspect.....that is all.
    Just offering some friendly advice ;)

    I apologize mates for being snappy. I was a little cranky earlier today. Here are the images. My computer runs fine HOWEVER, Are these daemons fishy? What about "storeinstalled" and "AGSService"

    (the black highlights is the name of my computer btw).

    (PLEASE DON"T JUDGE my photos! I was some bored drunken black dude reading garbage news lol)

    Why was i automatically directed to the malware site without seeing a link?
