What is "https://info.updaterex.com", it keeps trying to get into my computer on all browsers, my Avast security blocks it, where is it coming frin?

Posted

I keep getting a "blocked" message from Avast, my internet security provider. Where is this "updaterex.com" malware virus coming from. The other day my girlfriend told me that I was trying to "video call" her on Facebook, I don't know how to do this, I did not do this. It also said that she was trying to "video call" me, she doesn't know how to do this either.

Do I have a virus in my computer? I ran a scan and all the files are ok, no viruses. Why does this bad file keep trying to attack my computer, its scary. It has happened about 12 times already. I want it gone !!
