Like the title said, when I clicked at a link, Chrome would sometimes open up a new tab, contents being the page I clicked the link at, while the old one turned into ps4ux then india-zed.com. And when I clicked a link on Google, I would always open a new tab, with the old tab sometimes staying as it is or turning into ps4ux. Doesn't happen if I clicked a link right when the page still loads though.

 

Using Chrome at Windows 7 64-bit. Already tried cleaning with Malwarebytes and Hitmanpro to no avail. They detected a bunch of things but the problem is still not fixed. Tried the Junkware Removal by Malwarebytes but it keeps saying Permission Denied even though I've run it with admin rights. Dunno if the scan is successful.

 

I have no idea where I got this malware. I didn't download anything shady. It just came out a few days back out of nowhere.

 

Edit: It seems blocking all third party cookies solve the problem temporarily. There are these two cookies that keep coming out no matter what the website is, titled connectionstrenth.com and urlvalidation.com. And I notice whereever the malware is active, chrome will show it's blocking a pop up page and an Adobe Flash Player from activating.

It seems that your pc has a problem or could be infected with malware which is going to take some more work and a deeper look. No sense running a bunch of tools here.
Please follow this Preparation Guide. If have already done a step or you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.
Pease include a link to this thread.

Let me know if all went well.

Now You created already 3 new Topics at the MRL Forum section, one would be enough, thanks.

Others cleaned

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.
From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.
Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRL Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.
The current wait time is 1 - 3 days and ALL logs are answered.
If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.
To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
