Hello dillbobagins -
Step 1 - Ask if you are not 100% sure of anything I have left here
Note 1 - I do not believe that Google Chrome is currently a decent protecting browser
Note 2 - I will include full directions on how to uninstall Google Chrome browser
If you still have problems, start with running avast! cleanup tool from your desktop to remove their toolbars. Other clean up programs will follow.
You will need to reset your own home page(s) again. Please ask if you wish for help . I set Google.com as one home page, as Google is a Search Engine, not a browser.
You will be re-setting Internet Explorer, as you will have removed Google Chrome.
Personally I find that using Chrome leaves you more open to these browser infections. Please open the 3 bar tool link at top right of Chrome and Delete All Extensions regardless of their names.
In the first 2 pages of Am I Infected you may notice about 10 cases of this type of problem, and ALL are using the Add On Browser: Chrome, not the built in Microsoft browser.
Please follow one of these links, and use your already installed Microsoft Internet Explorer, on your Microsoft based computer.
Uninstall Google Chrome - Chrome Help - Google Help
Manually uninstall Google Chrome in Windows - Chrome Help
Now Delete your version of Chrome (once you can use Internet Explorer) and make sure that it is fully gone.
There is no benifit in the use of Chrome, and many people have downloaded it by accident with other programs, or under false ideas.
OK, enough of my preaching -
