Hi everyone

I am new here and would really appreciate your help.
I have AVAST free antivirus on my laptop
It runs 64 bit windows 7

i keep getting popups from avast saying it has blocked a malicious website
and mentions the following

(this is different each time.)

infection: URL:Mal
Action: blocked
Process; C:\Users\Celia\Appdata\Local\temp\fwx.exe

i have tried to delete this file, but it says i can't as it is in use.

i am not up with the technical part of a laptop and would really appreciate any help with this.

The Avast popups are very regular

many thx
