I have tried every solution on the internet to get rid of this virus. Malwarebytes flags it, but it comes right back when I open Chrome. I am at a loss. Here are my log files.

I have Malwarebytes Premium, and I have tried that solution several times, but it does not work. Just for good measure, I tried it one more time. Still does not work. I have tried every solution on the internet. Nothing works. How do I get rid of this thing?

Did you delete all the websites under the "Other search engines" settings, even if the step is listed as optional?

That fixed it! I have no idea what search engine was causing all this headache because they all looked legitimate. Thanks!
