I was playing around with my father's CHromebook and have noticed this iLivid webpage comes up when browsing. I know the behavior of it, and knew it was some sort of redirection malware. Mostly harmless, but very annoying. Since I have not really played around with a Chromebook before I tried researching about it, how to removed it, but there is little to no information regarding it how to remove. Most of the articles are for Windows or Mac machines (which it is targeted antivirus.about.com/od/virusdescriptions/a/Ilivid-Virus.htm), but not the Chromebook. I do not use Chrome as my browser. If someone knows more information for CHrombooks regarding this it would be helpful. I did go much of the process as the WIndows version of Chrome to see if this would remove the redirection, but nothing seems to be working. 
 
It might be just harmless, but to block the website and try some other process to remove it.  
 
Here are some of the links that pop-up every once in a while:

That doesn't apply to the ChromeOS on Chromebooks, Broni.

In that case you better wait for someone who actually uses Chromebook.

Yeah, I have gone through the process of something similar to that. However, I will try and reset the settings on the ChromeOS.
