My parents computer recently was infected with the track id malware. Every time they would search in Chrome it would have trackid at the end of the URL. Ex. ?trackid=sp-006? I looked online and I saw that you could fix it by going to Settings>Advanced Settings>Reset Settings>Reset. I did that and it seemed to have worked for the time being.
Can anyone tell me what this is and what it can do? I'm paranoid that this is only a temporary fix and that it will come back. Am I still infected? I would like for someone to help me to see if the infection is gone before I give them the all clear.
They are on Windows 8 operating system. I have run the avast and Malwarebytes threat scan and both came back all clear.
