Hey gang,

So here is the skinny – random audio ads in Chrome, sluggish chrome, chrome crashes, sluggish computer, erratic computer performance.  I ran windows expreience just to see how it compared to the previous benchmark and it is considerably worse.  I also thought it might be a fading HD, but that was the only test in the windows experience that stayed consistent.

 

Setup- Dell Latitude E5420 (2.5 years old), WIN 7, 32 bit, MS Security Essentials for AV(run updates at least once per week), run MWB A-W about once per month

 

Steps that I have tried so far after some research:

·         Ran adwcleaner – a few items found, cleaned them up

·         Ran JRT.exe – nothing found

·         Ran HitmanPro – found several items and cleaned them up

·         Ran full scan with MWB A-W -found a few items and cleaned them up

·         I have disabled some extensions in Chrome that I was not sure of origin

·         Cleared all cache, history, and settings in Chrome

I do not use IE, so I do not know if the problem exists there as well.  I am a pro google apps user so I need Chrome for everday business.

 

So where do I go from here?  I thank you in advance for your help.

 

Regards,

Bruno

Buddy215, thanks for your reply.  Before I started down this road of comsuming my time and someone else's time on this forum, I decided to try a much easier approach first.  I simply uninstalled Chrome and installed a fresh copy.  For now, that seems to do the trick.  If it starts to act up again, I will be back.

 

Don't how much I will add to this forum as my knowledge is limited, but I will definitely become a reader and glean from others here.

Ah...that was too easy:)  If the ads do come back...you can post in the other forum.
