    is front.optimization.com a malicious website?

    Malwarebytes keeps blocking front.optimization.com as a malicious website. Has anyone else had this happen or is this really a malicious site?

    You can contact a Microsoft Technician by going to http://www.microsoft.com/support. On that site there is a Contact option. You can call Microsoft support using the number provided there.

    I am not sure what Avast is doing but my guess it is blocking something in the Firewall. I only use Windows Defender and Malwarebytes Premium. I do know that some anti-virus programs can cause issues. I had a subscription to AVG which I no longer use.

    Good luck and keep posted.

    Well I probably made a mistake but I got ticked off after the third time it blocked a site for me and I uninstalled it. I suppose I should reinstall it.

    Hello Frank1:

    Even if the sites in question are perfectly clean, they may very well share an IP address with an offender.

    Please consider studying the two (2) pinned topics within the following URL and then start your own topic there to report a potential False Positive (FP) and begin a thorough investigation. Thank you.

    One can also get a second opinion about a site from Virus Total: VirusTotal

    It could be that a sites advertising was hijacked or even page hijacking, and needs to be "cleaned up" from their admins.
    This happens all the time to Yahoo for example.
