Relatively Clever Phishing Virus

 It pops up with messages purporting to be from McAfee (not on my PC), Windows WebAdvisor, and Chrome, but at least has the website in the popup.  Some popups tell you that you have visited illegal sites.  Norton does not seem to recognize it so I am running the free version of Avast.  Search for information on this virus and you get lots of websites encouraging you to install what I suspect are other phishing schemes.  So how did this get into my PC?  Norton seems not to know about it.

It appears to have only grabbed hold of Brave.  I disabled notifications for but I would prefer actual exorcisism.
