I've looked and cannot find any WP downloads, links, open pages, etc. to explain where this is coming from?

A little tile slides out from the lower right of the screen with news flashes.

I do not know the answer to that one, but it would annoy the hell out of me.

Some sort of malware perhaps. I would check to see if popups are blocked in your browser.

Found WaPo listed as a trusted site in ghostery... Deleted that & hope that will resolve it.

You, sir, are a genius!

Man, was that buried deeply... That was like having to go down to the cellar to find the instructions, with the lights burned out, using a flashlight to find the instructions in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying ‘Beware of the Leopard'.

I'm not a genius (maybe in my own mind), just have experience with the notifications.

As long as you take a towel with you, you should be okay.
