Firefox trying to access risky website on PC startup
When I boot my PC, McAfee opens a dialogue box saying 'risky website blocked' quoting Firefox app and showing ip address as 188.8.131.52. even though I haven't opened any browsers at that point. Help appreciated. Cheers

You may have ad/mal-ware. Further information can be found in this article; https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-caused-malware?cache=no
Run most or all of the listed free to use malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.
Thanks for the reply ran Malware (prem) says no problems. Does the IP tell us anything?? Cheers
Thanks again but how can I stop Firefox trying to connect to that site when I haven't even opened the browser? Cheers
I called for more help.
