Hey guys, recently just got a virus that's not wanting to go away. Ran JRT, Adwarecleaner, Mbam, EsetNod and the damn pup is still there. I've tried looking for some info about it and found that you have to manually remove it. I go to my chrome extensions and it's not even there. I've also tried to go into my programs to see what i've installed that could be the root to this but i've yet to find anything. But yes, every time I load up a new chrome browser the search bar is changed from my current setting Google, to combo search. 

 

Any help would, I can also feel it slowing down my chrome.

Yes, i've "managed" extension and it's no where there. I've disabled, yet comes back the next time around.

SOLUTION FOUND

 

Running HitmanPro after Zemana is a must. ComboSearch is officially off my Chrome, I can finally sleep well.
