Hey, can you help me? My computer now is stuck at this Discoverreceipt.com webpage. What should I do? How can I get it off my computer? I don’t know what is going on and this webpage just pops up suddenly when I watch a movie on Chrome. It always is on Chrome and doesn’t go away. I just want to watch a movie! I did nothing wrong. I don’t know why this webpage pops up and I have never seen it before. I search the movie on this webpage but it always says my search word did not match any results. Is it safe for me to keep this webpage on my computer and search on it? Anyway I would like to use google.com rather than this strange webpage. Don’t want to see it again on my Chrome, please help me get rid of it, thanks!
