maincaptchasource notification virus

This rogue extension on Chrome sends rapid fire notifications that look just like McAfee authentic notifications saying your computer is at risk. If you click on a button in the notification it will steal your address list and send scam messages. How do we tell the difference between authentic notifications and these scam notifications.

Hello @Anony 

Please check if there are any unwanted extensions and remove them. Also clear cache and cookies. This should fix the issue.
