    Windows 7
    I have a recently new windows 10 PC. I use edge browser & Chrome.
    I persistently get pop up invites for adult contact, small box, bottom right corner. Wording includes Chrome.com.
    I have standard protection included with Windows plus also Malawarebytes & Superantispyware, both of which I have run but the intrusion persists.
    Help appreciated.

    Reset your Browsers. Plodr's link shows how to do it for Chrome.

    For Edge Go to the Start button, then select Settings > Apps > Apps & features > Microsoft Edge > Advanced options.

    Note: When you reset your browser, you will lose your history, cookies, any tailored settings, and user-added extensions.
