My son has in the last couple of days received multiple notifications coming through from advising his system is compromised and to click and download various tools. He/we have not done anything untoward so not sure where this has come from. Looks like I have managed to block the notifications for the moment and have run a scan and nothing is found but not sure if I have indeed resolved it for him.

anyone else had this or have any recommendations?

    Hi @MarkBr

    Welcome to the F-Secure Community. Thank you for your post.

    This seems to be some kind of aggressive notifications that are sent via notifications from your web browser. It might be a web site in cache memory or a fraudulent add-on.

    Please proceed with these steps:

    1. Clear cache & cookies
    2. Manage extensions; please look up for any inconvenient extensions and uninstall it according to the instructions.
    3. If these fail, you may as well try to reset your web browser.

    I hope it will help you.

    Have a nice day.
