I'm definitely infected with Malware here, and I've run various Malwarebytes scans in an attempt to remove them, but haven't had any luck with them disappearing, despite MBAM removing the detected objects.


I'm guessing the first is the Scorpion Saver, or at least a variant of it. I have the sliding ads that pop up on the bottom and right sides of my browser. It seems this is related to a Chrome extension that I can't get rid of either, named "AILSaver".


The second one I know of is the "Safe Saver", where links are created on specific trigger words and attempt to give you coupons and extra results are applied to Google searches specifically saying they are provided by it.
