    I'm not sure who did it or when it happened, but on the family computer we suddenly have little popups from Malwarebytes saying that there is riskware that has been blocked. I have no idea what this means. I've scanned the computer a few times with Malwardbytes even after updating the program. I would really love to get rid of this as everyone thinks the computer is dying every time they see this. Any help?
    Thanks

    What exactly is the message that Malware Bytes gives?
    It should state a program or APP name and location of the program
    If it is a remote location like a web site then post teh full details

    Take a screen shot if you need to of the pop up & whatever page(s) this this happens on

    In my experience that message generally comes up on web pages that have potentially dangerous content like coin miners embedded in them, and you should not do anything about it. MBAM is working and protecting you
