Hello. So whenever my computer starts up, CMD.exe opens quickly and it opens up Google Chrome to a webpage called "Extendedunlimited.org".. AVG finds nothing, Malwarebytes find nothing.. I used AdwCleaner and it found some folders that looked related. I thought i simply just had to allow it to clean them up.. It rebooted but the cmd and the webpage still pops up.. AdwCleaner is not able to find the folders anymore though. 

 

I'd really appreciate some help. First of all it's really annoying but of course i'm also worrried about it being serious.

Try resetting Chrome.  Remove ads, search engine, homepage, and extensions - Chrome Help

  1. Click the Chrome menu on the browser toolbar.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Click Show advanced settings and find the "Reset browser settings" section.
  4. Click Reset browser settings.

Use CCleaner to cleanup temporary files, logs, ad/ tracking cookies, etc. Use the default settings. No need to use the Registry Cleaning Tool and its

use may cause other problems. Pay close attention while installing and UNcheck the offers of toolbars such as Yahoo.

Hi,

resetting Chrome will not help.
This is launched at startup by a Run-Entry in the registry. It is stored in the subkey HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run and its value name is "CMD" (the data are "cmd.exe /c start http://extendedunlimited.org && exit").
If you are familiar with the registry go ahead and delete this value "CMD". Otherwise (or if in doubt) ask here for further support to do it.

Thanks, i am not really at all familiar with the registry. I'd appreciate it if you could explain to me how i do this, since i'm kind of a noob in some areas..

Ok, let's do a blind fix.
  • Click the Windows Start Orb in the bottom-left
  • In the search box, type notepad, then click on Notepad to open it
  • Copy and paste the following text into the notepad document:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
    "CMD"=-
  • Click on File, then Save As...
  • Click on your Desktop as the save location, then in the file name box type: fix.reg
  • Under Save as type choose All files.
  • Click save and close the notepad document
  • Double-click the file fix.reg on your desktop
    note: if prompted by User Account Control, select Yes or Allow so the fix can continue
  • A message will appear about adding information into the registry, click Yes when prompted
  • A prompt should appear that the information was added successfully
    note: if not, please note the error message and post it in your next reply
  • Afterwards reboot your machine and report back if the problem is still there or if it's gone.
