So I was on my computer trying to find some cheap clothing websites and I happened to stumbled upon a video that I then watched but shortly after was asked to update my google chrome.. from reading other forms I am thinking there is a few people with a similar problem.. I didn't even realise it could have been a virus until my computer start to run a little slower so I googled it and came to this page. I downloaded FRST and done as the forum suggested although when I visited virustotal it said the file which I copied was not recognised so I'm just wondering what I should now do?

 

This was the forum I used, http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/548427/fake-google-chromeexe-virus/

My name's Naathim and I'm a GeekU Minion! Now that we are mates and will be working together to clean your machine out of any junkware, feel free to call me Naat :)

Before we start please note the following:

icon_arrow.gif Analysis and research take some time, also sometimes real life gets in the way, please be patient.
icon_arrow.gif Limit your internet access to posting here, some infections just wait to steal typed-in passwords.
icon_arrow.gif Don't run any scripts or tools on your own, unsupervised usage may cause more harm than good.
icon_arrow.gif Paste the logs in your posts, attachments make my work harder and more complicated.
icon_arrow.gif Stay with me to the end, the absence of symtoms doesn't mean that your machine is fully operational.
icon_arrow.gif Note that we may live in totally different time zones, what may cause some delays between answers.

icon_idea.gif I can't foresee everything, so if anything unexpected happens, please stop and inform me!
icon_idea.gif There are no silly questions. Never be afraid to ask if in doubt!

Let's start and enjoy the fight! :)
