Samsung galaxy note s4...last few days nonstop popup while on chrome browser. I either won an amazon giftcard, or am infected with a virus which redirecs me to the play store to download the "fix" .

How the #eLL can I remove this. I can't find the offending file anywhere

I hate the method but do the following.


Install any cleaner and clean the files. Also run a antivirus scan, Kaspersky perhaps.


But uninstall both after cleaning and/or scanning. They harm your battery on the long run.


Try to install an adblocker. If your phone is rooted Adaway is the best option around (atleast for me) or if the phone is not rooted Adblock Plus/Adguard (They worked good for me when I was on non rooted mods).


Hope you get out of the mess soon.

Do what Hareen has advised you. Also, do the same with Malwarebytes. For cleaner use CCleaner. If the problem persists after you've done all of those things, you might need to reset your smartphone. Good luck! :)
