"checkrobotics malware"


          

For the last 2 days, I've been getting small popups in the lower right of my screen, telling me my computer is infected, and to click here to fix. Of course I don't, and I close the popup. Computer is behaving 100% normally. Realtime Malwarebytes and Windows defender, and AdWCleaner, find nothing. At the top of the popup, it says "checkrobotics.com".

Comp is W10 home, 64 bit, all updates. Browser is Chrome. Any ideas on how to stop this?

There are different steps for different browsers to block/remove checkrobotics.

Thanks. I was about to do this, but I found that clicking the little notification icon, on the right of the task bar, gave me the option to disable it.
