If a site won't allow the browser to close, does that mean there's a virus now on the computer


Recommended Posts

The pop-up was blocked, but I could still hear the audio from it. Another pop-up came when I tried to close the browser.

I clicked on the "x", and tried again, but same thing. I had to log off. Anti-virus isn't detecting anything, but I'm still not sure if it's infected. Does this sound like it put a virus on it?

Thanks.

Hi smistr and welcome -

This is often a sign of a Rogue infection attempting to attack your system - Please follow these instructions for further help - - -

As we don't deal with malware removal in the
General Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Forum
, you need to start a topic in the
Malware Removal forum

    options
    , you select

    , so that you're alerted when someone has replied to your post.
  • One of the
    there will give you one-on-one assistance when one becomes available.
  • Please refrain from making any further changes to your computer such as (Install/Uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc...) unless advised by a malware removal helper. Doing so can result in system changes which may hinder the attempts by a helper to clean your machine.

NOTE:
Please DO NOT post back to (bump) your topic within the first 48 hours.

Replying to your own posts changes the post count and helpers are looking for topics with zero replies. If you reply to your own post helpers may think that you're already being helped and thus overlook your post.
    • If there is no reply from any experts after 48 hours, you can reply to the topic, asking for help again.

      Or
    • You may send a Private Message to a Moderator asking for assistance.
