This OneSafe PC Cleaner appeared a few days ago on my Windows 10 machine. It keeps popping up annoying messages on the desktop, which I have to close each time. It sometimes pops up a new tab to its home page OneSafe PC Cleaner in Avast Secure Browser.

I've tried to get rid of it by running an Avast virus scan, Malwarebytes, HitmanPro, Zemana (but it would not install), and Emsisoft. After running Malwarebytes the first time, the others pronounced my system fault free, as did Malwarebytes a 2nd time.

Most of the popups contain the URL "mixloads.com". No clue where that came from. Some popups contain "Avast Secure Browser" but nothing about what to do with it.

I was not able to find an "attach" button for the report files from Malwarebytes and Farbar, so I used the button Insert -> Text. Hopefully this uploaded the files.
