    Re: Adware-OneStep



    Most likely you have installed some free game(or similar) that also installed OneStep, you always MUST read the EULA(End User Licence Agreement), vendors have to read the agreement before labelling any programme as malicious(if any exists), this is why Mcafee detects as a PUP(Potentially Unwanted Program). If you have installed some freeware programme prior to these popup`s occurring i would uninstall that programme, also check in add/remove to see if OneStep is present, remove if found.
