Unfortunately I had this written and it got deleted and a new page started, and this behavior is typical. I hoped by disguising kb in the title would help, but it didn't.
Laptop, Windows7. I use Chrome, husband uses IE, same behavior on both.
Erratic behavior, opens new tabs and new browser pages incessantly, closes things like forum pages even with scrolling, reroutes to google search page.
Unsuccessfully tried to install Malwarebytes: When I click on Mwb .exe: "The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect."
The following were attempted without success, and all regular as well as safe mode:
AVG complete scan
AVG PC tuneup trial
Change extension of MWB download
Change name of MWB .exe
I found 2 incidences of keybar, I think 1.8 and 2.1. I tried to uninstall them, the 1.8 appeared to uninstall but evidence of 2.1 was still present, grayed out so no help.
To try to get more information, I tried to download Belarc. When I clicked on the run box, it says: "Could not initialize installation. C:\Users\E?nzo\Downloads\advisorinstaller.exe The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect."
