    How do you guys get rid of those nuisance Fake Virus Alert Popups with the Edge browser?
    Usually you can just press Ctrl + Alt + Delete, then select Task Manager and end the Edge process. But Ive noticed that when you start Edge up again from the taskbar it automatically opens up the last page that was previously opened. If that was one of those Scareware Fake Virus popup alerts, then Im presuming you would be stuck in a loop as it would just open the Fake Virus Alert popup page up again that you are trying to get rid of. I have Edge set to Open Microsoft Edge with the Start Page but in this case that makes no difference whatsoever. As a test Ive just tried closing down a webpage using Task Manager to close Edge with End Task. I rebooted the PC and even then Edge opens up the webpage that was previously force closed using Task Manager

    Im not trying to get rid of Adware mate...my PC isn't infected. In the past Ive always just ended the process with Task Manager and that's all Ive had to do. For future reference, Im just trying to suss out how you would deal with those Fake Virus Alert webpages when you get them when using the Edge browser

    Windows 10 - Edge Browser Popup - Virus - Can't Terminate It

    Fake Virus Alert Popups with Edge browser [​IMG]

    Upgraded HP All-in-One i5,8Gb, 1Tb computer from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10.

    Computer has the "Computer Health Alert" virus. Program in Uninstalls looks to be DailyDiet "Something" (when googled this is one of the variations). Avast, MalwareBytes, Kaspersky Boot 10 CD, CCleaner browser clean and registry clean, with the power
    uninstall did no good. A program listed on this page, ADWCleaner, found the remnants of the virus (some 55 cookies, registry entries, etc.) and had me reboot the computer.

    Still when Edge is started the infinite loop popup can only be terminated with task manager.

    Google Chrome is not affected.

    Next step?

    Thanks.
