My Question or Issue
I've been using Spotify app for a while now, with no issues, two days ago, I loaded up the Spotify Web Player to see if it was easier to add/delete playlists etc. Ever since then, I have been getting Adware Chrome browser tabs opening. I run pretty much everything under the sun in regards to malware/virus scanners etc. Malwarebytes/AVG/CCleaner/ADW/Spybot and nothing comes up.
I then had to trawl through the internet, which I then found many posts stating back in 2016 that the Spotify Web Player contained malware that caused **bleep** browser tabs to your default browser. Another user mentioned once he uninstalled Spotify, he never again experienced any **bleep** pop ups. I tested his theory and it seems to be true. After uninstalling, I went the whole day without a pop up, I re-installed Spotify directly from the website download, low and behold, 2 **bleep** pop ups came roughly 5 minutes after installing. Again, uninstalling and went 8 hours without a pop up, tested once more this morning to install and again, instantly a pop up. I've scanned for viruses/malware, but nothing can be found.
MalwareBytes instantly blocks the **bleep** website from actually loading, but it still pops up.
Again, this only happens when Spotify is installed and only happened after I visited Spotify Web Player 2 days ago.
