When the G@G page loads, it also loads a bunch of ads, and I think it's giving me a popup ad malware called yxo. warmportrait.
It only happens on G@G, and nowhere else. If I clean it, it's fine for a few days, and then it comes back, and I get it back from G@G. Is anyone else having similar issues?

The cot yo buy an exploit where you could completely silently install something just by viewing it on a webpage with no interaction whatsoever was over $10,000 if it was found. Highly unlikely it's gag.
The yxo. warmportrait. com pop-ups are caused by an ad-supported extension for Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome, which is distributed through various monetization platforms during installation. The malicious browser extensions is typically added when you install another free software (video recording/streaming, download-managers or PDF creators) that had bundled into their installation this adware program. Something that feigns being a video player update? Very possible, unlikely to be hidden from most AV though.
You basically downloaded something from cnet or a similar bs site and didn't click "do not install additional softare" or it installed regardless of what you chose.0
