  1. Hey Thanks. If you can just bare with me until I get on to this. Much obliged!
  2. Hi I ran the removal tool twice. I think it worked second time around. Hopefully the logs will show a positive result. Thanks Addition.txt FRST.txt
  3. Thanks so much! Files now attached. Addition.txt FRST.txt
  4. Hi Just remembered about this the other day so apologies as well for the break down in communication. If you still feel it would be worthwhile providing me with the assistance you previously offered that would be most appreciated. Hope you had a nice drive with the family!
  5. Hi Firstly many thanks for the prompt response and very helpful advice. I was fairly certain that I had uninstalled McAfee a few months back as it was not updating properly. I've done a search of my laptop and can find no evidence of it other than a (leftover) folder in Programme Files (x86). I suppose as an aside at this point I should ask whether it is still advisable to have an anti-virus programme that is independent of Malwarebytes? I realise this was the case in the past but have since been under the impression that it was no longer necessary as Malwarebytes provided protect
  6. Hello A couple of peculiar things happened this morning. Firstly my web protection setting had turned itself off and I had to restart my computer for it to come back on again. Secondly I wasn't able to log into the forum and was eventually locked out after entering my password too many times. I then received an email confirming this but it said the log in attempts had come from a different location from where I live. Obviously it would be very much appreciated if this could be investigated so if someone doesn't mind looking into it I've attached the relevant MB, Adw and FRST
  7. Hi Nasdaq I have successfully removed that application as requested. All seems fine but will certainly let you know if anything else crops up. Once again much appreciate all your help. Cheers
  8. Hi Nasdaq Here are the files for you to review as requested. Thanks again. FRST.txt Addition.txt
  9. Thanks, Nasdaq I will do this as soon as I next have an opportunity!
  10. Hi Nasdaq First off thank you so much for your very helpful efforts so far. However, before proceeding I should probably tell you that I might have found what was causing the problem. I think when I visited that website I may have clicked 'yes' when prompted with the generic 'allow notifications' message. Therefore in my Chrome settings menu I removed same website from my 'allow' list and since then I am no longer receiving the pop-ups. Apologies for wasting yours or anyone else's time but do you think it is probably safe to say that there is probably isn't an infection on the mac
  11. I forgot to add that neither Malwarebytes nor McAfee have picked up any signs of infection in their respective scans.
  12. Hello Obviously I've been rather silly. I realise it is a cliche to say so but normally I am pretty careful which websites I visit. Unfortunately late last night after a couple of drinks I went on a website called 'cartoonsons' to watch a couple of episodes of Family Guy. I'm pretty sure I've been on there before without a problem but yesterday none of the videos were working anyway so I just went to bed. Unfortunately since I turned on my laptop this morning I am receiving random Chrome popup ads which relate to this same website containing additional info regarding video streami
