"Virus"
Sat Nov-20-21 12:00 AM by allstondave

          

I have recently started getting the pop-up. My Avira anti-virus and my Iobit Malware fighter do not catch it.

Any idea where it came from and how do I get rid of it.

TIA,
allstondave

That is actually a notification/advertisement coming through Google Chrome. Click on Start - Settings - System - Notifications & Actions. Scroll down to find Google Chrome and turn off notifications.

Then you should also scan with ADW Cleaner.

And then check for any junk extensions in Chrome.
- In Chrome click on the 3 dots in the upper right corner.
- In the menu that pops up click Settings near the bottom.
- In the column on the left click Extensions.
- You can leave the Chrome Apps, anything else that you don't recognize is suspect and probably should be removed.

Thanks.

Turning off notifications in Google worked.

So that is a "feature" of Win10?

So you're saying a (potentially) malicious ad (or similar).
And by default (Win10) allows for it to be displayed (like many other nonsense) popups that one may see?

So there is potentially some actual exploit.


As in simply quelling the message does not mean that all is (necessarily) OK.


Note the (what appears to be a) site name in the message.
"Newssysstem.net".

Yup! That's the way it is. There's all kinds of danger lurking out on the internet and quite a bit of it is allowed by our operating systems and browsers.
