    q.js from p.adrta pop up

    Keep getting this pop up, "q.js from p.adrta open save run" Eset & Malwarebytes find nothing. How can I get rid o it? It may have arrived with Windows update July 7 2017.
    Thanks can't get photo to insert here

    These popups for a .js from adrta appear to come from a malicious ad...
    It appears Skype had this issue and the ad was removed.

    ...and is discussed here on the ESET forum.

    If you haven't downloaded or run the .js then there may not be anything on the PC that needs cleaning. There are some suggestions in the ESET forum post for further steps you could take to be sure.

    Sort of a solution

    I put the domain name in my restricted zone and now just get a notice that the file has been prohibited
