Windows 8.1 Malware problem! Annoying PUP

Recommended Posts

How Can i fix pop up coming up every 10-15 minutes asking "How do you want to open this type of link (http)?" Then if i select google chrome it redirects me to random ad website. I tried Eset endpoint, Trojan, Kasperski and Malwarebytes antiviruses but they can't detect any malware.

Please help me this is the most annoying thing i have ever seen.

EDIT: I also tried setting default applications and attaching file type to google chrome but it didn't work. I asked about this problem on microsoft forum too, but sadly they couldn't give me helpful answer...

Appears to be a file association problem. Here's an article on fix for Win 10; assume also applicable to Win 8: https://www.infopackets.com/news/9863/how-fix-windows-10-keeps-asking-how-do-you-want-open-file

Also surf the web - number of articles on the issue.

Does the question pop up even if you don't have any browser running? Perhaps you could gather logs using ESET Log Collector. See my signature for instructions and drop me a pm with the output archive.
