  1. Hello malina123 and welcome to Malwarebytes, Make clean of Chrome, see if that clears the problem: If your Chrome Bookmarks are important do this first: Go to this link: http://www.wikihow.com/Export-Bookmarks-from-Chrome follow the instructions and Export your Bookmarks from Chrome, save to your Desktop or similar. Note the instructions can also be used to Import the bookmarks..... Continue for a clean install: Download Chrome installer and save to install later: https://www.google.com/intl/en_uk/chrome/browser/desktop/index.html https://www.google.com/intl/en_usa/chrome/browser/desktop/index.html Next, Open Chrome and sign into your account, open a new tab and type or copy paste chrome://settings/syncSetup hit enter... In the new window that opens "Sync everthing" will probably be selected, scroll down to and select "Managed sync data on Google Dashboard" A new window will open, scroll down to and select "Reset Sync" that will clear synced data from Google Server... Continue to next step to completely Uninstall Chrome.... Next. Uninstall Chrome: https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/95319?hl=en-GB follow those instructions, ensure the option to "Also delete your browsing data" is selected. <<--- Very important!! Navigate to C:\Users\Your user name\Appdata\Local from that folder delete the folder named Google (you will need to show hidden files/folders to see the folder Appdata) For XP that will be My Computer > C:\ Documents and Settings\Your User Name\Application Data\Roaming How to show hidden files and folders for windows: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/show-hidden-files-and-folders-in-windows-vista/ Next, Install Google Chrome : Next, Import your Bookmarks... (instructions in the first step) Next, Install uBlock Origin for Chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ublock-origin/cjpalhdlnbpafiamejdnhcphjbkeiagm?hl=en Does that help...? Kevin..

    Being Remotely Hacked

    Phones probably would not be at risk, or not one you would notice... Are you able to reset your router.... have a read of the following: Reset your router, instructons available at the following link: http://setuprouter.com/networking/how-to-reset-your-router/ Follow those instructions very carefully. Next, Download and unzip DNSJumper to your Desktop, the tool is portable no installation necessary. Tool can be downloaded here: http://www.sordum.org/downloads/?dns-jumper Right click on Dnsjumper.exe and select "Run as Administrator" to start the tool, For XP just double click to run. rom the left hand pane select "Flush DNS" From the main interface select the dropdown under "Choose a DNS Server" From the list select either "Google Public DNS" or "Open DNS" From the left hand pane select "Apply DNS" When done re-boot your system.... Next, Reset all passwords you use on your PC, specifically any with financial implications.... Next, Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit from here Right click on the tool (select "Run as Administrator) to start the extraction to a convenient location. (Desktop is preferable) Open the folder where the contents were unzipped and run mbar.exe Follow the instructions in the wizard to update and allow the program to scan your computer for threats. Click on the Cleanup button to remove any threats and reboot if prompted to do so. Wait while the system shuts down and the cleanup process is performed. Perform another scan with Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit to verify that no threats remain. If they do, then click Cleanup once more and repeat the process. When done, please post the two logs produced they will be in the MBAR folder... mbar-log.txt and system-log.txt Thanks, Kevin..
