Screenshot malware?

Recommended Posts

I am not sure if I have malware, a virus, or the the virus is being served by an infected ad om a webiste.

Malwarebytes full scan came up with nothing, as did my virus scanner.

Something is taking screenshots of my desktop. It seems to be triggered by visiting Yahoo Mail in Firefox and Chrome, whenever I have a form open. Forms on other websites also trigger the screenshots, but it seems like Yahoo Mail is the one that will start it up again. If I clear the browser cache and cookies it goes away for a while but will later resurface. I have verified this by doing a a paste of the screenshots into other programs. I am definitely not taking the screenshots. I have no idea if the screenshots are being transmitted anywhere.

I have no idea what it is, or how to fix it.

I'd appreciate any help, thanks.
