Hi! I accidentally installed an unknown .exe file few days back which didn't seem suspicious though I think it infected my computer with malware that has hijacked my Chrome. I looked for it in the Control Panel and uninstalled anything that seemed suspicious. I even downloaded and installed various malware removal tools, include Malwarebytes and IObit malware fighter. But none of these were able to get rid of it completely as after a few days my homepage changed again.
What keeps on happening is that new malware keeps on showing up. In the beginning my homepage got changed to "indiatimes.xyz". I looked up online and uninstalled the unknown software from Control Panel and also reset my Chrome settings. After a few days, it came back in the form of Snap.Do and then again I tried to remove it and it went away. But now it's back and again my homepage has changed. BUT this time I keep on getting ads from "Safe Finder" . After trying again for a malware search and restarting my computer it seems to have gone away but I don't think that the problem is gone.
Also, it also seemed to have taken over my ESET NOD32 and forced it to block websites that were safe. Among the websites that my ESET was blocking was the official ESET website, so I got rid of ESET as well.
I don't know what to do. I've tried a lot but nothing seems to help. Please I need help!! Please respond as soon as possible.
