    Yesterday my computer began popping up a warning from Norton that says "Main[1].js" is not safe and has been removed. It frequently cycles thru "Main[2] and Main[3]" also. They are popping up about every 2-5 minutes or even less.
    If I click on the View Details I am given this path
    c:\users\alfre\appdata\local\packages\microsoft.microsoftedge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\ac\#!001\microsoftedge\cache\u1jsntcs\main[1].js
    The View Details also show the threat name: PUA.WASMcoinminderFull Path
    I have run Norton System Suite, Malwarebytes and downloaded and run the Norton Power Eraser. They all finish their run and report no problem found.
    If there is "No Problem Found" how can Norton continue telling me it has found and removed anything??

    That is in what used to be called Temp internet files in older versions of windows. To fix it, empty temp internet files or as it is now called, cache in edge
