I would suggest keeping Malwarebytes dumping Avast and go to Ms Security Essentials I've never had a problem with it.

Hi

Never had a problem with malware and Avast, and I visit questionable sites. Have you set up an automatic scanning schedule and what to do with the files found? Avast is great I love the sandboxxing feature.

It sounds like you have another infection that is allowing the malware entry. If you have some comfort using computers, you can try downloading some software called HIREN's BOOT DISK this allows you to remove infections (and all kinds of other neat things) without loading ANYTHING from your PC, and it has virus scanners built in.

Another suggestion would be to run "microsoft safety scanner" from microsoft.com.

PS Oh and make sure to run FULL scans not quickies!

Good Luck

Boot-time scan with avast! is 1st priority

avast! was rated number 1 with 5 other guys, including GData (who uses avast! engine).

Microsoft was rated last place and is not good enough for anything other than you recycle bin (including Defender)

It seems effective for me. I've used it for about 4 years on two PCs and a laptop. Between the three of them I probably caught a virus maybe 3 or 4 times at most on all three of them combined over the 4 years. I know I caught 2 viruses, but I managed to get rid of them rather quickly w/o having to resort to re-install Windows.

Maybe you are visiting the "wrong" websites?
