Hello.

I have been getting this pop up for a few weeks now and it is really driving me up the wall. I am usually pretty careful about where I am on the net so this one really caught me by surprise. It happens whenever I open the Chrome browser. I have followed most of the steps I have seen on here such as downloading the FRST tool to generate documents and the "mbam" document from a Malwarebytes scan. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance.

Does it happen when only Chrome is opened?

Open in Chrome:
chrome://serviceworker-internals/
and unregister all listed service workers.

Hello. How does one do this?

Well I believe I've unregistered all of the listed service workers now. What's the next step?

Does Avast still display notifications you posted?

It still does. When I try to close pop up it continues to pop right back up!

Can you disable Chrome extensions until Avast stops displaying popups?

Even after disabling extensions the popup still occurs. Am I doing something wrong? Did I not unregister all of the service workers properly?
