  1. Hi for a few months now a message pops up on my computer 'Update Required Your version of Yahoo search is out of date. There is a newer and improved version available with the fresh and intuitive Chromium browser. By clicking "OK" you agree to Install Chromium browser as your default browser,install our Desktop search bar, set Yahoo provided search as your default search, homepage and new tab on all of your compatible browsers. ' I don't have Yahoo search so I'm assuming it's malware. There also isn't an X to close the window when it pops up so I usually right-click on it on the task bar and click close. I have tried running a Windows Defender full scan which finds nothing, I have tried running a Malwarebytes scan which finds nothing and I have tried running an AdwCleaner scan which finds things every time but the pop up still occurs even after it has removed whatever it has found. I haven't downloaded or installed anything new or suspicious looking so I don't know how it got into my system. Once I have finished a scan I can't tell whether the malware removals have worked or not because the pop up occurs infrequently and randomly. What can I do? I downloaded the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool as instructed however when I run it it claims there's an update, it installs the update, says that it's ready to use, only to update again etc. this loops endlessly no matter what I do. I have to right click on it in the system tray and Exit to make it stop.
