Nothing shows up in a normal scan but a popup shows up from time to time, the issue is somewhat similar to this https://silicophilic...er-is-infected/but not exactly. I will get a screenshot and a scan report next time when I see a popup.


EDIT: Even if you don't see something in your normal scans, please run the tools we ask for and post results in order for our Helpers to get a better idea of the problem...
