He is not running the same set-up as you. Avast may be a better fit for him. I use Avast on the rig I use to post here and I have no issues with Hugefiles. Probably a rogue ad on their network. I suggest using No script on any computer you use. It is easier than people think. After installing, disable it globally. Then when you visit sites that give you hassles, click the icon and see what is running on the page. Disable them one by one until you kill the crap. Easy-peasy. After a few weeks of script killing, you will even see a noticeable difference in page load times.
The internet interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it

Well, you keep your head in the sand...
(With your ass in the air, waiting to be kicked)
Keep using AVAST and that other ad-ware laden false sense of security... I listen to the experts, not future victims...
