Google Chrome is not functioning properly for the last few weeks. I'm on Windows Vista. Anytime I try to open settings or tools tab Chrome crashes, without warning. It refuses to open a lot of the time. I can't add or remove extensions etc...


I've tried reinstalling, and also creating a new user profile, as suggested on some Google forums, but to no avail.


I suspect I've a virus/malware of some sort. 


There is one particular ad webpage that seems to pop up a lot recently too. (alidaba?)

When you uninstall Chrome, do you look around on your computer and delete files it left behind?
