Default Unwanted Survey

Almost nearly everytime I log on I get a pop-up website that wants me to take a survey. I went to Programs and Features but can't find the program listed. I was able to find this; DFNHK8.NET in the fine print.

Sounds like it could be adware or malware. Download Adwcleaner and that should scan your browsers and check for anything that shouldn't be there and remove it for you. Also check your extensions out too.

Malwarebytes hopefully will remove the Yahoo window that I get sometimes.
