Ok so i've had three more hits. Started on me starting up Chrome Browser- Time of attack plus time of me starting browser match.


I suspect my Chrome Browser may be infected or corrupted as I just got hit again and it s an exact time match for me starting up Chrome.


The initial 'attack' also seemed to be directed at Chrome. exe Or could it be a conflict between Chrome and Avast with Avast mistaking true Chrome items as false positives?


Would it help to see my Firewall log for latest hits?
