Photo Trouble Logging on to eBay Today

Anyone else have trouble logging on to eBay today ?

I was on earlier this morning checking to see if anything sold that I needed to ship and everything was Normal Then. . .

But I just tried logging on again a little bit ago and Bells Started Dinging with AVAST saying it blocked a threat.

I ran a full scan that came back clean and tried again getting the same results.

I shut down the computer and router then powered everything up again and ran another AVAST Scan as well a Malwarebytes Scan both of which were clean.

I normally use Mozilla Firefox but decided to try Microsoft's EDGE browser and while everything looked normal there and there were no warnings of any kind I still prefer Firefox so I quit in the middle of logging in and went back to Firefox only to get the same warnings again. . .

I haven't tried Google Chrome yet to see if I can get on eBay there or not.

Don't know if there's a problem with Firefox or if it's actually catching something that EDGE is missing (don't know yet about Chrome's ability to catch it).

I was able to get on here perfectly fine using Firefox with No Bells or Whistles going off so I figured I'd see if anyone else has run into this or not.

I haven't tried Facebook or YouTube yet but it sucks not being able to get on eBay through Firefox & Not Knowing if I should trust EDGE or Chrome if they aren't kicking up the same alarms.

I just looked online and you have a virus or some malware.. There are several websites with instructions on how to remove it... Micro soft has a free program.

Spent some time on YouTube and then a lot of time on Facebook.

Checked eBay and still getting the warning.

I checked out Windows Defender but it gets disabled when you install other antivirus programs. I just checked the status and found Avast had an upgrade which I just downloaded. Now I need to restart the computer for it to finalize.

Still don't understand why it only shows up on Firefox though leaving me leery about trying to log on through Edge or Chrome.

Got a couple TV programs to watch, then I'll check back later after the 'restart'.

Still Fighting It.

I uninstalled Avast so I could use the Windows Defender and then downloaded Avast again.

Still doing the same thing.

Just went through as many of the steps on that "cleanvirusfrompc" link as what seemed to apply to my computer and just now tried logging on to eBay (thru Firefox) again and still get the same alarm from Avast.

Thinking about uninstalling Mozilla Firefox and the downloading it all new again and seeing if that works or not, but getting tired & ready to lay down a while now so may wait till tomorrow to try anything else.

Uninstalling and reinstalling Mozilla Firefox could possibly help.. It could be corrupt.. I just got my hearing aids back from the manufacture and they had a corrupt file.. All it has to be is one bit toggled the wrong way... My audiologist said I was listening to much tractor and engine porn...

He also wouldn't use my previous programs for my hearing aids so we had to start from new.. He was afraid his program might have saved the bad file?

Uninstalled Mozilla Firefox last night then downloaded it again this afternoon.

Everything Seems to be back to normal (for now)

Well That Sucks.

Got the alarms again today.

As much as I Like Firefox, I just uninstalled it again and will have to experiment with Edge & Chrome to determine which I prefer. Or see if I can find the old Explorer program and use it.

Maybe I'll try downloading Firefox again in a week or two and see what happens by then. Might be a new 'add-on' from them causing the problems that maybe will be fixed or removed by then.

In the mean time at least I can check eBay using the other browsers.

Found out yesterday I need to ship one of my John Deere Breathers that sold Friday and would have shipped Saturday if I'd known sooner.
