  1. Sorry, tried that scheme, and I still get the same problem. Fixlog attached. It happens any time I do a Google search in Chrome. For example, seaching for Walmart Market Share. Before Malware Bytes blocked it, it would replace the top of the results screen with a bunch of non-Google ads. Clearly, something got planted on my machine that shouldn't be there. I agree with your thought that it is probably a Chrome extension of some kind. On checking the previous scan log, the unnamed Chrome extension, which I agree looked suspicious, was dated 4-26, but in 2019, not 2020. So I'm doubtful on
  2. I ran the adware cleaner, log attached. It didn't find anything except pre-installed software, which it said was benign. I ran the reporting tool .zip file attached. It's not the annoyance of the notification box that is leading me towards repaving. It is the fact that somehow I've gotten something nasty on my system. It is being blocked for now by Malwarebytes, but who knows what other kind of bad stuff it might be doing, or might start doing? To allow it to remain would be "normalization of deviance", the form of denial that killed both Space Shuttles. "Well, we know the O-rings are er
  3. I understand that the notification box is Malware Bytes working correctly and shielding me from the actions of this bad whatever-it-is. I am glad to be shielded from it. But what I'd like to know is what this bad thing is that is making this spurious request, how it got here, and most important, how do I get rid of the damn thing? I tried all the steps above, several times, and I still have the problem. Does anyone know how to get rid of this blasted thing without completely repaving my computer?
  4. Nasdaq, thank you for your quick reply. I'm sorry, but when I click on your first link, #214325, it says, "Sorry, we could not find that." Did it move somewhere else, or is it possibly the malware blocking an attempt to remove it?
  5. I am having the same problem with the trojan advertising redirect friteem.com that other users have reported. When I do a Google search in Chrome, It is detected and blocked by Malwarebytes, all good. But how the heck do I get rid of it? Ideally I'd like to see Malwarebytes quarantine and then exterminate it, but I don't see any way to do that. I'm still on the free trial version. I'd be much more willing to pay for a product that would squash this nasty thing rather than simply block it. Any ideas?
