In the last few days, a new tab with a supposed search engine has popped up in google chrome, it is called "mysearchresults.com" as far as I can tell from doing some research, it is some sort of virus/malware that tracks, hijacks, something along those lines. The computer is still working well, but I have so far tried numerous things without any help. Malwarebyte seems to stop the tab from running so that now a tab still opens up "search.startnow.com" but at least it's blocked from running the site. I also ran spybot, superantispyware, a registry cleaner, I tried doing these in safemode as well. I also tried a system restore to about 1 month ago, but nothing seems to make a difference. It does not show up under programs to uninstall or under search engine settings in google chrome, I have also uninstalled and reinstalled chrome. I have Windows 7.
any advice would be great, thanks.
