Just today for some reason I keep getting this message popping up from Malwarebytes.

Also when I scan with Malwarebytes I get this list of found viruses but when I remove them it stops google chrome and "removes" them. But the next time I scan they are back as if nothing ever happened.

So what do I do? Are these two things related? How do I fix this? Thank you.

Conduit is a browser modification to your home page and your search engine. 
 
You can find a handy guide for getting rid of it here, generally uninstall, delete temp/local app data, run your malware/virus scanner and remove any registry values associated with the program.

The weird thing is that those aren't installed. The program doesn't exist and neither does the extension. I ran all of the programs on that page, restarted my computer like it told me to. And still when I scan again with malware bytes it finds them again.

There were some false positives today from MBAM.

Make sure you update its database.

How do I do that? EDIT: Nevermind. Figured it out. For some reason I had to click the "current" button under updates for it to actually find updates. Problem is the same thing pops up after a scan.

You only need to get one of these to run, not all of them. You may get warnings from your antivirus about this tool, ignore them or shutdown your antivirus.

NOTE Do NOT wrap your logs in "quote" or "code" brackets.
Do NOT use spoilers.
Do NOT edit your reply to post additional logs. Create new reply. I'll not get any email notifications about edits so I won't know you posted something new.
