    Whenever I click to load a video I get this that avast has saved me from https://yt3.ggpht.com

    What is this, how can I stop it? Should I worry?

    ggpht.com is a domain controlled by four nameservers at google.com. All of them are on different IP networks. lh4.ggpht.com is hosted on three servers in United States.
