I recently un-installed a program by the name 'Wise Registry Cleaner' because I figured it was useless.
I used the method of control panel to remove it.
Directly after un-installing it, I get multiple popups.
It opened Google Chrome as well, leading me to the Wise Registry Cleaner's website.
There was a popup that said a 'WhiteSmoke' extension was installed.
My Chrome was completely re-themed and all my settings have been modified.
I tried to fix it by deleting the 'WhiteSmoke' extension but it did not appear under chrome://extensions/.
In fact, none of my previously installed extensions were showing up.
At that point I knew I had a problem so I ran multiple full scans with Hitman Pro, Microsoft Windows Malicious Removal Tool, Microsoft Security Essentials, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and IObit Malware Fighter.
None of them found any threats.
I tried using TDSSKiller, Adwcleaner, JRT, and RKill to no success.
All I could manage was to remove the Conduit search engine option and clear my cache and browsing history.
I have a Dell Studio 1735 running Vista Ultimate 32-bit.
Google chrome is my default browser.
I'm not sure if this is the only infection/issue on my laptop so any help is greatly appreciated.
Please and thank you!
P.S. I noticed my Chrome is very buggy.
