  1. I keep getting this daily from my virus check and when I get it removed, it shuts down Chrome can you tell me how to fix this? C:USERS\ROBYN\APPDATA\LOCAL\GOOGLE\CHROME\USER\DATA\DEFAULT\Web Data
  2. As the title suggests, when I start Chrome I get sketchy outbound connection attempts to brighton.com, venturead.com and a bunch of other sites. This is not tied to a specific page. Malwarebytes finds nothing. Hitman Pro finds nothing. Windows Defender finds nothing. I have reset my browser. I have dumped my cache. I have checked out my browser extensions. I have gone through my running processes. I'm finding nothing. And yet the problem persists. I have attached my Malwarebytes Threat report, which finds nothing. I have attached FRST's report and additions.txt, nothing i
  3. Hello, I am seeking help with a question/problem. I was browsing the internet and noticed that my chrome was working slower than usual, so I decided to close it and start it up again. While restarting chrome I got an error that said something about Chrome_Elf dll missing, however chrome still restarted itself. I ran Malwarebytes to check for infection and noticed that on the first scan it scanned for less objectives than usual and was much faster with the scan. I restarted my computer and this time the scan took longer than usual and there was less objectives scanned. I have included FRST
  4. Everyday, I receive the same notification for the same PUP to be quarantined. I don't use Chrome and haven't done for some time. I did have a file with old Firefox settings stored on my desktop, but I have shredded that. I am at a loss as to why these PUPs keep recurring.
  5. Hi I posted a reply to a thread, actually I spent a couple of hours making sure it was accurate from my experience and it seems to have been removed. My account states that I posted in that thread but the post does not show after one day or so. It was not contravening the guidelines for posting and to my mind was helpful not only to the OP but to all searching for a solution. My question is why has it been removed?
  6. Anyone have a solution or advice on the issue... after quarantine select on all items... reboot does not eliminate this detection.
  7. The reason that these pups are not going away is because they are syncing across Chrome on all devices including Mac Linux Android and PC. It is the same file being sent by Chrome across all platforms. It is only detected by Malwarebytes on the PC, it is not detected by malwarebytes for Android or for Mac. I tried the following experiment: I disable all of my devices except for say, one mac and one PC and I clean the PC and then I let the PC in the Mac sync the infection comes back to the PC even though the Mac tested clean (I eat with the Mac version of Malwarebytes). The sam
  8. So i guess this is kind of a two part post. So we just replaced our on prem endpoint clients with the cloud endpoint clients and that seemed to go fine using the mbam clean tool. The problem some of our users are seeing is their chrome and firefox will lock up for 20+ minutes and just be frozen. I have turned off Web Protection and Anti Exploit to see if that fixes it, i haven't heard an update on the issue yet but i was curious if anyone has ran into this issue before. Part two, We have two policies, one for our computers and the other for our virtual machines/VDI's that DO NOT us
  9. Hello, Sadly I got a weird returning adware on my PC called Adware.Elex.ShrtCln, that is somehow linked to my Google Chrome account. When I run a Threat Scan, malwarebytes detects the adware and succesfully removes it to the quarantine. After that the program prompted me to restart the PC. So after I restarted the PC, I ran the Threat Scan again. But unfortunately the adware was again detected. I have already tried to remove all the browsing data from chrome and to use the Chrome Cleanup Tool but no succes at all. Can someone help me please? Thank you in advance for every assist
  10. Today I realised after a malwarebytes scan that I have the babylon PUP infecting(?) google chrome. I have tried many tools including malwarebytes, avast, ADWcleaner, FRST etc to try and diagnose and resolve the problem but with no luck. I (think) I have narrowed the problem down to a single file: C:\Users\"Username"\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Secure Preferences There is a line in this file which sets a startup URL to "http://search.babylon.com/?affID=111434&tt=010712_4&babsrc=HP_ss&mntrId=6e7008aa00000000000090a4dea255ab""http://search.babylon.com/?affID=1114
  11. So I ran a a malware scan today and its flagging chrome as a PUP for both my laptop and desktop. Here is a picture, please fix soon.
  12. It is in the office PC, now here it is quite midnight, sure tomorow I will post. Hi
  13. Hello. I've tried uninstalling Chrome, resetting the data and running the malwarebytes free version scan - then i delete the quarantined results and restart the PC. After rescanning it once the computer has signed in i keep getting the same adware.yontoo appearing in the scanned results. See below; How can i make sure i remove this once and for all so it doesnt appear again? I've tried the MalwareBytes Adware cleaner - that has removed other stuff but this Adware.Yontoo is driving me insane. Please can anyone recommend what i should do? Thank you. j4v3d
  14. So i'm sure i'm in the same boat as a lot of other people, after seeing high activity on the forums about this, but i've followed some 'solutions' and yet i'm still getting the same the same 4 files appear on the scans i'm running, i don't know whether i should be worried about this as so many other people are having the same issue i just wanted to post here so someone could help me once a solution has been found as multiple attempts of deleting these web data files just isn't working nor is resetting my sync could someone explain to me what is going on and a way to solve this so
