Hi,

Although it is being blocked by Malwarebytes I am getting a pop up message every few minutes:


Blocked access to 77.221.153.210 Potentially Malicious Website Type incoming.


The last time I had virus problems I was told to use Malwarebytes so I bought the program and it is on and updated.

I did an extra complete scan with Malwarebytes but nothing found

Same with Norton Internet Antivirus.

Same with TDSSKiller.

Do I need to do more?

Regards

That message means the IP address of the website has been blacklisted by Malwarebyte's malicious website protection. Since it has prevented your browser from visiting the site, there's no way for you to have become infected by it. Almost every drive-by infection relies on unpatched 3rd party software. So the best protection is keeping your applications updated (e.g. Adobe Flash / Reader, Sun Javascript etc). Finally, not every site blocked by MBAM is malicious. It may be on a shared server with an infected site, or even in a range of IPs deemed potentially unsafe, but not all infected.

TL;DR no you don't have to do anything else.
