Pixshark "infection"?

  • Hello.

    Less than a fortnight ago, I stupidly clicked on an image on what I thought was a genuine site. "Pixshark.com" then loaded up in Opera.

    It is clearly a scam site, but after running a full virus sweep, I couldn't see that it had done anything to my PC.

    Today, however, this notification popped up:
    0_1538933922460_Untitled.png

    Can anyone enlighten me as to what is on my PC and/or how to remove it? I know it's a Windows notification, but it specifically mentions Opera, so I thought the issue might be resident in the browser rather than Windows.

    Thanks!

  • Check if notifications from that site are enabled. Check if they added an extension to Opera. Check if you still have a tab open to that site somewhere (which is what the message sounds most like).
