Bitcoin Miners help

Recommended Posts

Hey. So, I have the free trial of Malwarebytes. Web protection is on. I knew about openload.co using bitcoin miners, and Malwarebytes blocked them. I added and exclusion for that site in Malwarebytes to watch a movie. It mines bitcoin, right? If I remove the exclusion of that site, will it still mine bitcoin? Or, if I keep the exclusion but I am not using the site at the moment, does it still mine bitcoin?
I have an Acer Nitro 5 with an i5 8300 h, gtx 1050, HDD(if it matters) and 8 gb ram. I run Windows 10 pro. In Chrome, when I play surviv.io I have lag spikes. On other sites/.io games I don't have, so, is it because of the bitcoin miners?
