  1. @AcousticChic It's been past almost two weeks since my last post. Do you still need assistance with this issue?
  2. @supersonicsjm There was no need to run the previous FRST fix again. Just the new scan with Malwarebytes after resetting Chrome Sync. Resetting Sync will clear everything in your Chrome Sync history. This does not remove the items from your Desktop or mobile browsers, it only clears the various caches stored on the server. Now, test the computer for a couple of days and let me know if the problem is solved. Thank you. Android8888
  3. Hi, Are you syncing Chrome with other devices? If you do, that can be causing the problem. Read carefully the instructions at the link https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/258886-chrome-secure-preferences-detection-always-returns/ and execute the steps as instructed. Then, let me know if that solved the issue.

  9. Hello @Tnavear It has been 5 days without a response from you. Do you still need assistance?
  10. Hi, I'm glad you managed to restore most of your important tabs. Okay, please keep me posted.
  11. Hello @supersonicsjm Thank you for the logs. Please read this link and try to restore your Chrome tabs. Also, are you still having that initial error in Chrome? Thank you. Android8888 (Rui)

  13. Hello @supersonicsjm and My screenname is Android8888 and my real name is Rui and will be glad to help you with your computer issues. Please feel free to ask questions if anything is unclear to you. Please DO NOT RUN ANY additional scans or anti-malware tools on your own while you are being assisted in this topic. For now, follow the instructions below to download and execute a scan on your system with Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST), and attach its two logs in your next reply. Download the right version of FRST for your operating system: FRST 32-bitFRST 64-bit Note: Only the right version will run on your system, the other will throw an error message. So if you don't know what your system's version is, simply download both of them, and the one that works is the one you should be using. Move the executable (FRST.exe or FRST64.exe) on your Desktop.Right-click on the file and select Run as Administrator to open the tool.Accept the disclaimer by clicking on Yes, and FRST will then search for updates which should take a few seconds.Make sure the Addition.txt box is checked.Click on the Scan button and wait. The tool will do a back-up of the Registry which should take a few seconds and then starts scanning your system.When the scan is complete, two message box will open, saying that the results were saved to FRST.txt and Addition.txt, then it will open two Notepad files.Copy attach both FRST.txt and Addition.txt files in your next reply for my review. Please attach the requested logs and wait for further instructions. Thank you. Android8888 (Rui)
  14. Hello @Tnavear Thank you for your patience. One thing before we start, your Drive C is only 3.9% of free space Drive c : () (Fixed) (Total:222.89 GB) (Free:8.81 GB) NTFS Looking to its total capacity I presume this is an SSD (Solid State Drive). SSDs will slow down its performance when they start to get full. To avoid the SSD slowing down, it is wise not to fill the SSD to full capacity, or store large and infrequently accessed files on it. I recommend you uninstall some programs you don't need or don't use anymore to free up to 30% disk space. If you want to keep all programs, another option is to buy a new SSD with more capacity. 500 GB is a good option. For now, proceed with the instructions below and execute the fix with FRST. Warning: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on this particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to the operating system. Now follow the instructions below to execute a script fix on your system using FRST, and provide the log in your next reply. Download the attached fixlist.txt file, and save it on your Desktop (or wherever your FRST64.exe executable is located); DO NOT open or modify that file! Right-click on the FRST executable and select Run as Administrator; Click on the Fix button; On completion, a message will come up saying that the fix has been completed and it'll open a log in Notepad; Please attach the Fixlog.txt in your next reply for my review. Please attach the Fixlog.txt and let me know how is the computer running now. Thank you. Android8888 (Rui) fixlist.txt
