  1. Is Chrome synced? Does this only happen in Chrome and Edge? Were you able to reset Edge? Are you on a specific site when this happens as it may be the sites themselves with the issue? Please follow the instructions here, including running adwCleaner:
  2. Let's reinstall both browsers If you have Google Chrome bookmarks, please back them up before proceeding. Instructions on how to do so can be found here: http://www.wikihow.com/Export-Bookmarks-from-Chrome Uninstall Software Press the Windows Key + R on your keyboard at the same time.

  3. see if you can run Chrome with the extensions disabled, it may be a recently installed extension causing the issue https://www.thewindowsclub.com/chrome-incognito-mode-safe Let me know if that makes a difference.
  4. Hello and welcome to the Malwarebytes Forum, There are no obvious signs of any infection in the logs. I suspect it is webpage based redirects that are occurring. Do you recall which particular websites you are visiting when this happens? Adding an adblocker to your browser extensions may assist. www.ublock.org, www.adblockplus.org or https://adguard.com/en/adguard-browser-extension/overview.html are all good ones to consider. Clean out your browser cache as well: While the Chrome browser is open Press Ctrl + Shift + Del to open the Clear Browsing Data Window. Click the Clear browsing data button.

  10. Trying to dig out the source from those user preferences is like trying to find a needle in a haystack, so it's best to delete them, uninstall then use an adblocker to minimize exposure and move on. Then be careful about any extensions you choose to install, research them first. Also when installing or updating programs, watch the installations carefully for any third party installs and be sure to opt out as they are always checked off to install by default Personally I use ublock, but both are very good, use which one you prefer.
  11. The sync feature has a lot to do with it. Chromes the most popular browser so therefore there are more attempts to compromise it with adware. Personally, I use FireFox, but none of the browsers are immune, so use the one you like the best. Add an adblocker > www.ublock.org is a good one. That will help to minimize exposure. Right click and delete the FRST program and logs and you should be good to go.
  12. Is the User Data folder there? (If so, delete it) Did you find the Chrome Folder in AppData? If so, then that's fine, re-install Chrome and see how it goes.
  13. yes, this should resolve it Just make sure that you are not synced as that will cause it to return See the info in this post https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/214325-chrome-secure-preferences-detection-always-comes-back/
