    I keep getting these annoying popups (see attached image) and I have no idea how to get rid of them. I think I might have picked up some adware or something. I've run Avast and it found nothing. I'm at a loss, I can't figure this out.

    Run this:
    https://www.malwarebytes.org/antimalware/mac/

    Then hold down shift key and restart Safari

    You can also hold the option key when you use the Quit from the dropdown menu.

    That appears to have fixed it. Thank you very much.
