I am requiring some help regarding a fairly common type of virus. My family's computer displayed an extremely suspicious pop up warning which prevented closing and reopened itself when I tried to close the chrome dialog attached to it. I created a screenshot and then closed the task through the task menu. This happened a little over an hour ago and has not happened again. The pop-up generated following a completely normal search (searching for google.com in yahoo) and to my knowledge has not happened prior. This same computer has been infected with Powliks in the past, but due to there being an epidemic of the same virus, removal instructions were common on this forum, and a few weeks ago I noticed somewhere around 50 steamwebhelper processes. I had steam installed and I ended the process tree and ran a malwarebytes scan, nothing came of it so I figured it was just a glitch. Enclosed are the FRST.txt and Addition.txt records, along with an attached .png screenshot of the pop-up. (I did not call any of the numbers) FRST.txt Addition.txt I changed everyone's name for their privacy, please excuse the obviously fake names
