So I've had a previous issue with spamware with something called SelectionLinks in Chrome. I uninstalled that and removed it from Chrome and for some reason thought that this was somehow the same issue and was therefore very frustrated. I reset my computer to factory condition after loading necessary files onto a flash drive and thought that would certainly fix the problem. It did not and thus I am here. 

 

Whenever I'm using Chrome, I could be clicking anywhere when a new tab will open (with total ad performance as the core of the web address) saying that I need to download Flash or something. I was fortunately savvy enough to recognize that this was total bull and once again, thus I am here.

 

*My log is attached because I tried several times to post with the text in the post and it said it was too long.

It appears that this issue is resolved, therefore I am closing the topic. If that is not the case and you need or wish to continue with this topic, please send me or any Moderator a Personal Message (PM) that you would like this topic re-opened.
