Windows 7: Suspisious Popup claiming to be "Download Manager"

Suspisious Popup claiming to be "Download Manager"

After updating the website CCleaner, I started getting a POPUP appearing to be an update to Windows Download Manager. It actually looked like a small window that appears when you update Internet Explorer. I am not very computer saavy but I know when something doesn't feel right. When I did a little more investigating (ie Terms and Conditions) it implied that the rules and regs apply in Israel. Needless to say I did not download the info. I simply clicked the red X to make it go away. But now it keeps popping up when I sign back on after a short break.
Can someone please tell me how to make it go away for good? Its titled as "Internet Download Manager2" .Thanks for any help you can give me.

This is probably more than you need but if it helps, then great.

  • Please go to Start and type in "msinfo32.exe" (without the quotes) and press Enter.
  • Save the report as an .nfo file, then zip up the .nfo file and upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.
  • Also, save a copy as a .txt file and include it also (it's much more difficult to read, but we have greater success in getting the info from it).

Make a full scan with Malwarebytes.
