I noticed I was getting a lot of blocked ads and site popups while doing usual browsing on safe sites. I managed to end the ads that accompanied this browser hijacker between Avast, Malwarebytes, Adwcleaner, and HitmanPro. Then, I noticed opening a new tab in Chrome resulted in a new tab opening but redirecting to a copycat secure-surf page. When not redirecting to that website, Google appears normally with a "Secure Search" bar added on. I was able to end the obnoxiousness only by changing my Chrome settings to this: b4b4e0ef07941901be71cd234915341a.png

That was also the advice on "uninstallation" from Secure-Surf's website, but that doesn't remove anything. I want this thing gone for certain and have tried Avast, Malwarebytes, Adwcleaner, HitmanPro, and a full search with McAffee on a Windows 10 computer.
