Suspicious hotmail pop up


Recently, when I go to log on to Hotmail from my desk top I get a Microsoft looking pop up showing my email address and saying 

However, if I log into my computer under a different account and go to sign into Hotmail/outlook I do not get this pop up, just the normal log on screen asking(firstly) for my email address, then my password.  This is very suspicious.  I have done a full system Norton scan but nothing was detected.  Has anyone else had this suspicious pop up and has a solution been found.  Many thanks in advance



Re: Suspicious hotmail pop up

Could be a pup or pua. Try running a scan with the free MalwareBytes  program and see if it picks anything up.

Norton products concentrate on malware that can damage your system, which is why some PUPs and PUAs are not detected.
