Hello,

 

Recently my browser (Google Chrome) has been infected by JS/Adware.Tablayouts.A. It was detected by ESET.

 

I tried a lot of software but failed to solve the problem. I found the posts in the forum: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/657654/jsadwaretablayoutsa-infection/, and I followed the instructions and got the logs. 

 

I wonder if someone could help me with the code.

 

Thanks!

Hello nasdaq, thanks for your reply.

 

I followed your instructions and got the logs.

 

Actually several days ago I used Malwarebytes to scan my computer and it did detect some threat. I have quarantined those threat but JS/Adware.Tablayouts.A still exists. It is detected by ESET every time I start Google Chrome.

 

I have tried other software like hitman pro and adwcleaner but the problem still remains unsolved.
