Hi Guardian Bob, I am getting exactly the same problem. Everything has been and was ok up to yesterday, then this morning I get the same messages. I have opened up a ticket with Malwarebytes, however, its to soon for a response from them. Looking at other users it seems to be happening, albeit showing different web sites, but basically the same.

All I can tell you is what I have tried so far; 1. Uninstalled Chrome, the reinstalled it. 2. Cleared all of my History, Cookies and Cache. 3. Scanned with Mallwarebytes. And 4. Googled 'dakotaram.com' Unfortunately, this has done absolutely nothing, in fact I could not find anything relating to that web site anywhere! As you state, the constant popping up of the alerts is starting to get annoying. What really annoys me is that Malwarebytes do not make it easy to report, why oh why don't they add a simple button so that users can report when a problems arises? I have attached just two of over 50 logs files.

Hi Bob, the only thing I can suggest is to go to the setting in Malwarebytes, Click on the notifications tab at the top and un-click where it says 'Show all notifications in Windows notification area' That way Malwarebytes still blocks, but you don't get that annoying pop-up every time you use your browser.

Hello @Bates

My name is Maurice.  Let me know what name you prefer to go by.

Do these steps to beef up the browsers on this pc.

[   1   ]

Use Chrome browser   to go to https://www.google.com/settings/chrome/sync and sign into your account.
Scroll down until you see the "reset sync" button and click on the button
At the prompt click on "Ok".

[   2   ]

for Chrome, while Chrome is running:
Press & hold SHIFT+CTRL+Del keys  on keyboard to get menu for clearing browsing data:

Check mark the line  "Browsing history"

Check mark the line "Download history"

Check mark the lined "Cached images and files"
and press Clear Data button  ( in blue )

[   3   ]

After that, make real sure that Chrome is "NOT" set to reload the pages from the last session

Go into the settings menu of Chrome by first clicking  the control icon of Chrome on upper right of the adress bar

Then look deeper in SETTINGS

Make real sure it is "NOT" set to "continue where you left off"

See this article on our Malwarebytes Blog
https://blog.malwarebytes.com/security-world/technology/2019/01/browser-push-notifications-feature-asking-abused/

 

You want to disable the ability of each web browser on this machine from being able to allow "push ads". That means Chrome, Firefox, or Edge browser (on Windows 10), or on Opera.

Scroll down to the tips section "How do I disable them".

[   5   ]

I suggest you install the Malwarebytes Browser guard for Chrome.

To get & install the Malwarebytes Browser Guard extension for Chrome,

 

Open this link in your Chrome   browser: 

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/malwarebytes/ihcjicgdanjaechkgeegckofjjedodee

 

Then proceed with the setup.

Let me know how things go after this.

Cheers.
