You have an alert message that appears in the Avast WebShield software. This message gives a We address and specifies that it is a Malware-gen. This is a frequent warning message. What is its meaning and how to solve this problem?
Clients1.google.com is used for query suggestions in the Google search bar of your web browser. Sometimes browsing may be slow due to a DNS problem with your Internet provider. It is a blocking of the proxy or a malware that can be at the origin.
If you have this warning with this address, then try running a scan of your system. Avast may block this URL and the warning will not appear for a while.
Disable Query Suggestion
If you have this error again, it is best to disable the query suggestion in the web browser. For this we go to the search parameters> suggestion of requests.
Replace the search engine
You can also replace Google with another search engine, such as Yahoo or Bing.
Google script or plugin
Another cause of the problem is a Google script, like Google FX or another plugin related to Google. They will have to be deactivated.
