You might find Bitdefender - for Mac will help too… There is freebie version which sits in the quietly in background and takes up little space etc. You can manually run a scan each day of you wish. Whenever it scan it will update the definitions first, then scan.

I'd still recommend a scan to check for and eliminate possible nasties too... Blocking the pop up is OK... But if there is wee pest/nasty still hidden within your Mac OS wise to find and eliminate too... There are few pests about that do affect the Mac systems albeit nothing seriously so - yet.
