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.
