    Download HitmanPro and run a free scan.
    30 day trail version, should fix your problem.

    There might be a hacking issue on your website, you can do the following

    1. check website through any site checker tools (to check if there is malware, blacklisting status, website errors or out-of-date CMS)
    2. Update all login access (Cpanel, CMS, FTP)
    3. fix the issues either by removing the script or plugins that causes this
    4. then mark as "fixed" in Google Search Console if you believe that you have removed this problem

    Change your passwords
    If your site is hosting malware, you need to immediately change all of your passwords. We recommend using strong passwords.

    Remove the malware
    It's nearly impossible for anyone to reliably remove malware from a website by hand. To remove the compromise from your files, we recommend using an application like SiteLock Essential. Using its SMART scan technology, it will not only find any compromises in your files, it also removes them.

    Identify & fix the weakness
    To prevent your site from getting hacked again, you should identify how your site was compromised. There are two types of weaknesses: passwords and structural problems.
