I just opened up chrome and waited about 15 minutes and another popup happened.
this is my history from chrome right after I ran the "qualys broswer check"

Click on "Customize and control Google Chrome":
Click "Settings" then "Show advanced settings" at the bottom of the screen.
Click "Reset browser settings" button.
If the above didn't help....

That didn't work. I got a malwarebytes popup that blocked a redirect after about an hour of being open.

Both... I reset everything back to defaults.. then I ended up uninstalling. I ran a malwarebytes scan, reset the computer and then downloaded a new version and installed fresh.

Okay... I've solved it!!!! After installing and uninstalling all day yesterday on 3 computers.. while I waited for another popup for you... I went around investigating... I ran across a reddit link that discussed this mobifoth/chrome thing... apparently there have been a few chrome extensions involved in this fiasco. From what I've read... users with the "Unseen" extension and the "Smartshot" extension have been affected. I don't use "unseen" but I DO use "smartshot" and that extension is on every computer in my house that is infected. the computers that don't have it aren't infected. Here's what I found on reddit.
So my computer IS clean... just a bad extension! Thanks for everything you did for me!! Have a wonderful weekend!!
