    How do I get rid of a pop up virus that is activated by opening google chrome on my Xperia 1A. It highlights that google thinks I have 2 viruses and then has a timer that gives me a matter of a few minutes to press the button to fix before the phone closes down. The phone will not work for a couple of days and then will spring into life again. I do not press the button to fix the virus as presume this gets you in more trouble. I have looked for unusual apps on my phone but do not see anything. I have thought about uninstalling google chrome but only have the options of disable of force stop?
    Any ideas would be appreciated
