Recently (about a week and a half ago) i was downloading a program and it installed a virus onto my computer. No big deal, I ran avast and deleted the program and anything that it might have downloaded. However, i continued to get problems with my internet browser (chrome.)
A list of the things that it does:
Brings up a random spam page whenever clicking ANYTHING within the browser.
Has replaced my home screen when starting the browser. (Have checked settings, everything is as it should)
This is across all browsers i have tried on the computer. Chrome, IE, even my Steam browser. However, it is only on that computer, my laptop which is on the same Gmail account is perfectly fine.
Like i said, I ran avast, it didn't find anything. Windows Firewall is on and working, I just don't know what to do. Someone please help, tell me what to do!!
Another thing to mention: i can by no means afford a check up, or any hardware reset. I'm hoping I may find some sort of program that could remove this virus, or whatever it is.
Thanks in advance,
