1. Until this month, can't recall experiencing a malware. My AVG free always protected me. At first (1 Sept), I noticed just a persistent 'popup' called 'Watchonline.band', just above the righthand side of the system tray; the initial one states "This site has been updated in the background". Unless I click on its top-right delete icon, after several minutes subsequent popups accumulate above. All I have done is click the top-right delete icon, never accepted offers.
