Hello everybody,


2 Days ago my Chrome started opening ad tabs by itself from the website "Girrrly.com" it even launches on its own while not running. I did scans with Malwarebytes, Bit Defender, Adwcleaner and nothing was found.

I went in the task scheduler and found 2 tasks responsible for that (Pictures attached).  I also noticed in the Task Manager an unnamed service using 60% of CPU, property says it's Svchost.exe in C:\Windows\SysWOW64. I Used ProcessExplorer to dig deeper but couldn't find more info.


Help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
