    Default What is this?

    Recently when I open certain websites this globe thing appears in the bottom right corner, the only way to to get rid of it is do a restart.
    I can open various sites not po-rn, by the way and it pops up.

    Anyone else had or got it and know where it comes from and how to get rid please?

    Maybe time to do a virus/malwarebytes scan?

    I think I've found it Charlie thank you, I did another search adding more words and it said there was a program called 'Origin' that is causing it, I found it using that 'Search Everything' program and it had 2 files which I deleted, so far so good not popped up since.

    Update!

    It appeared again, did another search and found a thread where others had the same issue, someone said it is related to Avira AV.
    What they suggested was to re-install Avira and it went, well I went to do that and I got a window where I could do a repair, so I did that, so I'll wait and see if that did the trick.
