Has it always done this or is this a recent change? You could have a damaged file. Try uninstalling and reinstalling and if you still have a problem and no-one can help on this site, I suggest you go to

Does Avast on your computer do a daily update?.

Have you tried another browser to see if you have the same problem?.

If you do a Google search (Avast stating malicious url), you will find a number of possible causes or solutions. Looks like a corrupt or damaged file problem!.

I would use Avast's uninstaller utility then reinstall Avast free and register.
