Long story short: 

 

I logged on this morning and discovered Google Chrome was acting "weird". If I open a new browser tab, any left-click on the mouse on any area of my browser will redirect me to: 

 

http://land.pckeeper.software/land/9.6.5/index.php?affid=mzb_292.10904241.1482521259.20.mzb&utm_source=&utm_medium=&utm_campaign=pck_ytz_us_96&utm_term=&utm_content=&userDefiner=mzb_2424&trt=33_1641011700&tid_ext=pck_ytz_rs_sale;dda56ec6-c945-11e6-b7b5-12c26be3c49e;9c450300-dc45-4b8d-a797-527d9cebf7bf

 

Basically, any mouse click on any new page will redirect me. I am still able to browse the web if I exit out of the infected adware tab... however, it continues to affect every tab....

 

I downloaded ADWARE and JRT from this website...but after running them and removing the suggested folders, I am still having the same issue. 

 

Any help would be appreciated, ty. <3

Update:

 

I downloaded Malwarebyes and was able to get rid of 1 infected PUP. I am running Windows 7 OS, if anyone is wondering.

 

Here is my mb log:

I still get the redirect whenever I use Google Chrome. :( , it appears to be only with Chrome.
 
I'm not sure what to do now... if anyone can help, that'd be great. Ty.

UPDATE:

 

I've uninstalled and reinstalled a new version of Google Chrome.

 

The problem seems to have disappeared...but I will advise the techs/mods on this website if the issues re-arises.
