My Chrome browser periodically ( every 2 - 3 days) freezes and a message is posted that tells me the computer is infected. Recently, these messages have a verbal component telling me the same thing the message says.
I have run Adwcleaner_6.043, Zemana, unHackme, Malwarebytes, Windows Defender, and HitmanPro. The message keeps returning with the screen frozen.
So far, when the pop-up / frozen screen occurs, I go to Task Manager, and use the end process key to clear Chrome. I run the listed programs, then open up the Chrome Browser -without the refresh option and start over where I was before the interruption.
Additionally, when I leave Drudge.com on a tab for a while I get an ATT&T survey. I am waiting to see if cleaning the first issue will impact this bogus survey problem.
