I know it's not but you may wanna look into it. Every click I take on the website apparantly has 18 risks -- which will probably want people to not come on here. It's odd, it's 18 risks for one file?

Uh oh! I think it's something on your PC, websites seem to be fine at the moment.
Try using an Adblocker ( www.adblockplus.org , for example); sometimes there's crap hidden in malicious advertisements.

Other options? Burn an anti-virus boot disc to either a USB stick or CD. Then turn off the PC and boot from the CD/USB.
Scan your PC for viruses that way and clean everything it finds. This might take a few hours, depending on how much stuff you have on your HDD. But this is definitely the proper way to deal with viruses.
Using virus scanners while Windows is running is not reliable, since the virus might have already found its way into the system, and hidden itself somewhere where Windows will not find it. Nor will the anti-virus software.

Let us know if you need assistance!

Ummm... what? I scan it on safe mode weekly, and I've not downloaded anything for..... 4 months? I barely download on my PC... I highly doubt I've a virus..

and also, I have no clue how to boot from a USB/Disc... or how  to burn my anti-virus onto a disk. It's only this website it shows up on.

It seems  to be a problem with images on this site, as all the reported files are .jpg and .png (I get 3 different warnings on the 'Home' screen, unsure why)

Also, already have AdBlock.

Just to be sure, can you download and install the free Spybot - Search & Destroy from here: https://www.safer-networking.org/mirrors24/

First, update it upon opening it. Then close all your browsers completely and use the Immunize function. After that run a full system scan with it. Preferably in Safe Mode, like you said you usually. Let it get rid of all possible threats.

It stopped, turns out Avast needed an update (Not sure how the 2 are linked, but I updated it and it has left me alone)

Good to hear! Seems like an issue with Avast then.

Anyway, you might still want to try Spybot's Immunization. It's free and blocks your PC/browsers from connecting to malicious websites (via the HOSTS file).

You'd have to see how to enter the your "BIOS". In my case, I have to hold down the DELETE-key while the computer is off, then turn the computer on while still holding the key. After a little while a menu should come up.

With some computers, they key which needs to be held down may be different.

In your BIOS you would need to look for something like "Boot options" or "Boot (device) order". You should be able to edit the order, by placing your disc drive or USB-flash on the top of the order-list. Save the changes, and the computer will then re-boot from your device. 

After that, you should be able to leave the boot order as it is. In my case, if the computer doesn't detect a bootable USB-flash or disc, then it will boot from the HDD, after a few seconds (regardless of the boot order set in the BIOS !). But again, this may depend on your specific computer/motherboard model.

Actually there's no need to go into BIOS for that. You can boot from another device "just once" by opening the Boot Menu instead (of the BIOS). Usually this is the F8 key on your keyboard.

This way you don't have to change the boot priority, nor go into the BIOS.
