I tried Malwarebytes Free but removed it after it kept popping up messages to buy the license, that ran on top of all other content and required a restart to remove each time. I used the standard removal tool in windows 10, but had leftover messages. I then used the Malwarebytes removal tool and thought I had finished, but every week on a Tuesday I get the following popup: It has a green circle with the letter "i" in it, and says, "We need to close your browsers. They cannot be open while we get rid of unwanted cookies and trackers" then lists Microsoft Edge (which by the way is never open as I do not use it). Clicking on the message does nothing. Left click, right click, nothing.
I tried the Malwarebytes removal tool again and it said there were no Malwarebytes files on my computer. This is the same color as all the former Malwarebytes pop-ups trying to get me to buy the license. I have to restart my computer to get rid of the pop up until the next Tuesday. This pop-up never showed up before I installed Malwarebytes Free. I have searched my hard drives for any Malwarebytes files and have come up empty. This pop-up is on top of all other content and is very annoying. How can I remove it permanently? Screen shot of the pop-up attached.
