I get a pop up saying www#### wants to notify you etc

It is a long rectangular box at the bottom of the screen and it is only on websites and sometimes on every page. It says www.??????.com wants to send a notification but first you must turn on notifications. I can't get rid of the pop up and didn't have it before getting this Dell XPS 8920 PC.

Dell XPS 8920 silver edition
7th gen i7 Intel CPU
Samsung 850 evo SSD for boot
Added front fan
16gb of memory
AMD video/graphic card
I buy a new Dell every 4 years for the last 25 years

Try running a virus scan. Also check your application list that are capable of sending push notifications

I found out I have a virus called PDF100 and downloaded Malwarebytes but don't know the outcome yet.
