I ran SpyHunter 4 on my PC with latest updates and see the following infection in the scan results:
I tried removing the infection with SpyHunter but as soon as I login to Chrome, it syncs all the information (settings, cookies, passwords, etc.) back to my PC.
Now, if I remove the file "Secure Preferences" manually, I know that the infection would no longer be present, but the problem is this file has information about key Chrome settings and preferences in it.
Moreover, note that I have enabled the sync option in Chrome as I use another device.
I have managed to make a copy of this file (which does not have any extension) and tried opening it with Notepad (by appending the filename with .txt) and see the line of code which includes "mysites123.com".
Question: Can I just remove this line of code using Notepad and save the file in txt format and later remove the .txt extension from the filename? How best can we tackle this situation? Thanks!
