Yesterday while on the computer I suddenly got the Positive Finds popups. I had malwarebytes premium running and it wasn't able to prevent it I guess.


Ran a scan with MBAM and it detected it, I restarted thought it would be fine but Positive Finds is still all over my browser


This is the first virus/spyware/adware I've gotten in years so I would like some assistance from you guys
