Hi,  I've been trying to get rid of this hijacker in my Chrome browser.  I've ran all cleanup programs I have, manually removed it and uninstalled and reinstalled Google Chrome twice.  The only thing I've learned is when I reinstall Chrome, I believe it reinserts itself when I import my bookmarks, but not entirely sure.  Can you help ?

Welcome to BC....

 

Please tell us what programs you have run.

 

When uninstalling Chrome....did you uninstall your Chrome profile? It seems you may have as you mentioned importing Bookmarks...

but need to be sure.

 

Use CCleaner to remove Temporary files, program caches, cookies, logs, etc. Use the Default settings. No need to use the

Registry Cleaning Tool...risky. Pay close attention while installing and UNcheck offers of toolbars....especially Google.

After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.

Thank you for responding so fast, this afternoon I finally (I think) figured it out...it remains to be seen if it works for good.  But, all it was was a matter of resetting the chrome browser in advanced settings.

I literally ran programs, uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome repeatedly and just about freaked out.  The programs I did run were ADW, Rkill, Malwarebytes, and the rootkit one, everything really that I've seen here...at one point I unchecked "don't show hidden files" and went in the files User, chrome, google, default etc. and deleted the files manually only to have them come back.  By the way the only program that I tried that really did find the files and cleaned them was ADW, but it was back everytime I clicked Google !  Anyway just wanted to say what seems to be working in case anyone else is having this problem.  And thanks,

If it comes back...run one more program and post the info from CCleaner after running JRT scan.....

 

  • download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
  • Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
  • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
  • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message

Post the three lists mentioned below using CCleaner.

Open CCleaner and click on Tools. Choose Startups. On that page you will see a list of Windows Startups and at the top tabs for each browser and Scheduled Tasks.

At the bottom right of that page you will see a button when clicked will allow you to Copy and Paste the list of Windows Startups and Scheduled Tasks into your next

post. Please do that.

 

Open CCleaner and click on Tools. Choose Uninstall. On that page you will see a list of programs installed on your computer and at the bottom right of that page you

will see a button when clicked will allow you to Copy and Paste that list in your next post. Please do that.
