Question: pop up

Hey guys,

I've tried everything I could think of. I have emptied the caches, cleared history, removed website data, & disabled extensions and it won't go away. It loads almost every time I go to a new page. It started doing this when I updated my laptop. Don't know if it's an underlying issue from before when I (accidentally) downloaded Mackeeper. 😟

MacBook Pro with Retina display, macOS High Sierra (10.13.1)
