Okay one day i had downloaded a software into my chrome laptop. Then a large pop up said something about malware ( I couldn't read it fast enough when it appeared). I'm very curious about what happened, and yet scared because i keep almost ALL of my information on this laptop. What should i do to keep from getting Malware?

This is the Google Adwords forum.

You may want to ask that question over at the Chrome Forum
https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!forum/chrome

But basically you should have some 3rd party Anti-virus/malware protection, as well as any firewall.

You would find the most help at that link I posted above,.
