Alright, so I've had an issue with Chrome for the past couple weeks where every time I open up Chrome (whether's it's in the morning after my computer's been off all night or I close the browser and open it again a few minutes later) my ad blocker extensions automatically uninstall.
The only extensions I have on chrome are:
Adblock Plus 1.9.1
Adguard AdBlocker 2.0.12
I have tried only using one at a time to see if maybe one of them is corrupt and is affecting the rest but so far every single one of them have the same problem. I've tried using a couple others (Adblock Super and Adblock Pro) but they keep uninstalling as well.
I know this isn't caused by a virus on my computer because I've run a full systems check with Malwarebytes and Microsoft Security Essentials and they say I'm clean. Also, I just got a new laptop and I'm having the same troubles on there.
Another issue that has only recently occurred in the past couple of days is that my ad blockers don't seem to be doing their job properly because I keep getting one pop up inconsistently. I'll open a page and SOMETIMES I'll get this almost-window-wide pop up and a dialogue box and after I close the dialogue box it comes back only with an option to "Prevent this page from creating additional dialogues" and after I click that, press OK and close the pop up I'm alright. And sometimes when I open up a new tab or page I'll get a blank pop up I can just close. I've attached pictures of this sequence of events. I do not have this problem on my laptop.
My last issue was brought to my attention when I was trying to fix these problems.
I went to the Programs and Features option in my Control Panel to uninstall and then reinstall Google Chrome (this has helped fix lots of issues for me before) but Google Chrome is not there! I have the Google Drive and the Google Toolbar for Internet Explorer but not the browser itself and I don't know where else to go to uninstall it that isn't just "deleting a shortcut". I do not have this problem with my laptop. It shows up just fine.
Does anyone have any ideas how to fix any of my problems here?
