It wouldn'y surprise me @Ulverstonian 

There's so many scripts running if you look. I'm sure they aren't all needed Thoughful

I've blocked all that I can.

@Ulverstonian

This is to with Adobe Audience Manager, which used to be demdex.net

Adobe have a page all about this :

https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/audience-manager/user-guide/reference/demdex-calls.html?lang...

Its a false positive and you can report it here to Avast, as this has been an issue since 2018 with Avast im afraid.

@MI5  Nothing to do with scripts but Avast has been know to harvest data so a bigger risk than Adobe!!
