Novice here, not sure what information is relevant so I'll try and include everything.
Not too long ago I downloaded some malware that installed a bunch of unwanted programs (although I'm sure I would of unchecked optional software prompts). I uninstalled all I could find, the only lingering issue is my chrome browser is still affected by the cse google redirect.
I think it's related to re-appearing .tmp files in my temp folders that, no matter how many times i delete them after they're detected by scans, always re-appear after reboot, I'm sure they're connected because whenever the cse google redirect happens I can see a .tmp process in task manager the same name as that in the temp folder.
Here's the re-appearing temp files I'm currently seeing in C:\Windows\Temp:
-gCA28.tmp (this one appears in task manager also)
and this one in C:\Users\Rob\AppData\Local\Temp:
I'm not sure if the files are always those exact names but it's always the same kind of format.
I've ran a bunch of scans after looking up this kind of problem on forums:
-windows defender (doesn't detect anything)
-malwarebytes anti-malware (detects the temp folder files as trojans and removes them, although they always come back after reboot)
-malwarebytes adwcleaner (detects registry values "HKLM\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\runonce\wd" and "HKLM\software\mgt", yet again they get removed but still come back after reboot every time)
Nothing works and after rebooting these registry values and files in the temp folder re-appear, I have no idea what to do now. Any ideas on where to go from here?
Thanks in advance for any replies!
