I am not sure if I post it in  the right section but please moved it if it's a mistake. 


I downloaded a free extension called History Calendar made by Russian programmers, it's supposed to allowed the Chrome users to look for older surfing history (3 months or more) and URLs easier. It instead messed up my Chrome.
I had to discard it.


Now, SiteAdvisor is not working or displaying in Chrome.


Both search results from Google displayed in Internet Explorer and and Google Chrome will be highlighted in blue colour unless Siteadvisor is shut down. Once Siteadvisor is shut down, I am blind even though I have WOT.


Whenever, I signed in to email my username also will be highlighted as I typed my password. 


I found out from Google search that Google Chrome Web Store is riddled with malicious malware in the shape of extensions (free of course). I should have found earlier but now it's rather late.Damaged done!


First, it's annoying to see search results in Google.com and my username highlighted all the time whenever I logged in for my emails, going to forum like bleepingcomputer, or searching for info.


Second not only Google Chrome is affected so is Internet Explorer.


Third, Siteadvisor is working only on Internet Explorer not on  Google Chrome. I have uninstall and reinstalled Siteadvisor extension a few times on Chrome but now Siteadvisor is still not working at all most of the time.


There no redirecting, MBAM scan showed no result of any infection. I tried to search for an answer but no avail.


Should I use DDS to see what is going on?

Thank you very much.
