Hi, Just joined Bleeping Computer.
Does anyone know what this file is, as in title "lajondecmobodlejlcjllhojikagldgd" which is in "C:\Users\----\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions"
and "lajondecmobodlejlcjllhojikagldgd" which is in "C:\Users\-----\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Local Extension Settings"
"lajondecmobodlejlcjllhojikagldgd" in "C:\Users\----\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome SxS\User Data\Default\Sync Extension Settings"
There is also 3 or 4 other scattered in "C:\Users\----AppData\Local\Google\Chrome SxS\User Data\Default"
All with "lajondecmobodlejlcjllhojikagldgd"
They are loaded with Chrome extensions and are flagged with ADW Cleaner. When cleaned they reappear when chrome is opened. Is it malware?
I am going to disable all extensions and see if they are gone and then load one by one to see if they reappear.
I disabled all extensions including chrome extensions. The files reappear when chrome is executed.
I use TuneUp utilities and have disable chrome on startup and in background. I checked this with task manager and they don't appear until chrome is executed.
Also I have Malwarebytes and avast antivirus which don't flag the files. Maybe harmless but why flagged with AWD. No extensions so loaded with chrome itself.
I hate Malware, esp. backdoor ones. I am going to mail Google about it.
