Dear user, your question is if after uninstalling the "wave browser" it could have left some virus in your computers, is it correct?

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
That is correct
Expert:  ExpLari replied 13 days ago.

If so what you can do is run a full scan of your Windows 10 with Windows defender or if you have an antivirus of preference you can run a full scan from it and check for any virus or malware infection.

In addition to this, if you see the alerts when you are surfing the Internet with a web browser, it may be because the browser has notifications enabled and you accidentally accepted to see notifications from untrusted pages.

many sites offer this type of notifications to send false alerts of potential risks along with offers of anti virus and fraudulent system protection programs.

If you want to disable these notifications you can do it in your internet browser from the settings section you can find a section of notifications, depending on the browser you use the steps may vary.
