need help with this one.

i have been hit with this virus/trojan/malware call it what you will. I ran a full scan and avast found nothing. has anyone else encountered this? have you found a solution. I also tried another trojan program called Loaris which claims to have found it but wants me to pay first to remove items found. Is Avast not finding it?

Notorious pop-up adware.

This is where a good ad-blocker and script blocker will prevent against such pop-up adware-nasties like:
-freenotifications.com, -Devicespam-shield.com, -News-fesihe.cc, -Abetal.ga and the likes.

A combination of uBlockOrigin and uMatrix as extensions inside your browser Avast Secure Browser,
or other Google Chrome or chromium-type like browser, like Brave, Edge, epic browser, Firefox etc.)
to save your glorious behi*nds,
