Repeated popups saying outbound site blocked


Recommended Posts

On Windows 10 PC, getting repeated popups saying "website blocked due to Trojan".  I've no doubt that Malwarebytes is keeping my machine safe, but the popups are occurring every 10 seconds and are impossible to ignore.  I've run a Malware scan and nothing was found.  Rebooting made no difference.  How do I stop them?  Do I need to clear a cache or something like that?  The relevant information would appear to be:

This was a false positive and should now be corrected.  Please update Malwarebytes and it should no longer be blocked.

You can update either by right-clicking the Malwarebytes tray icon and clicking Check for Updates, or by opening Malwarebytes and going to settings by clicking the small gear icon in the upper right then clicking the Check for updates button located near the top of the General tab.

Many thanks Porthos.  I had assumed that Malwarebytes would update automatically.  My settings are on "automatically download and install updates", but perhaps that means the virus files not the app itself.  Thanks.
