Popups in Chrome

I've been getting annoying popups in Chrome, and none of the fixes I've found online are working.

After visiting albinoblacksheep.com, I've been getting annoying popups in Google Chrome every time I launch it (and sometimes in the middle of a session as well). Example here. They are always in the bottom right corner of my screen.

I have tried disabling notifications for that site, and re-installing Chrome, to no avail. I have also scanned my PC with Malwarebytes and Spybot, which both came up clean.

Any suggestions, Mefi?

This may be a Chrome extension or app that got installed along with something else possibly. Follow the steps in this help file and see if you see something in there that shouldn't be there.

So I answered my own question. It didn't occur to me until after I posted the question to delete the site from my history. Problem solved. Thanks anyway Mefi!

Oooh, you might try turning off web notifications for Chrome in general, unless you use them for other sites.
