Hello:  I have encountered a problem in attempting to sign in to my bank account:  When I type in my bank address I am relayed to several options(which is the normal procedure) but when I try to open my account I get the following message from my AVG Antiviris: "Threat secured.  We've safely aborted connection on XXXXX>XXXXX etc because it is infected with URL:Phishing."  Also when I   try to sign in with my Samsung Tablet I have no problem with my web search and can sign in.  I can;t get into my bank website to alter passwords on my PC  so I am here.

Have you contacted your Bank? If not, do it now.

 

They will tell you what is all about and guide you what to do.

Pardon my failure to understand why I can sign in using my Samsung Tablet "A", but not be able to sign in with my Firefox/Windows 7 PC due to it being flagged on Firefox by AVG as an URL: Phishing problem; and how would the bank be able to solve a problem that seems to be unique to Windows?  It is Sunday here now so I would not be going to bank until tomorrow.

Problem solved.  Not by bank, but by a Firefox date.  Please close thread.
