OS: Windows 7 Home Premium SP1
Avast antivirus keeps popping up with a message that it has shielded my computer from an executable file named yogozjvdaoeg.exe
I have searched online for references to this, and cannot find a thing.
Chrome had also begun launching itself randomly.
I went into Task Manager and discovered 12 instances of this file running, with a reference to Google Chrome. I tried ending these processes, and for every one I ended, another one (or more) would start immediately.
I have uninstalled Google Chrome, and still these processes are running, with no way to end them.
I tried using Taskkill, but again, for every instance killed, a whole new set would start up immediately.
I went to the file location (see image) and tried manually deleting it, but it states that Chrome is running, so it cannot be deleted. Chrome is not running, it has been uninstalled.
Is this a Chrome thing, or could it be malware? I ran Malwarebytes, and it did not find anything.
Thank you for any help you can give.
