That’s likely not malware per se, but more of a screen locker due to you clicking on stuff in a browser. Best to boot to safe mode, reset your browser back to defaults, remove all extensions except the default browser ones, and add only ublock origin and the webroot extensions. 

Other than that, check startup items just to be sure and you should be good to go
