  1. Do you guys know some new/good (Material Designs) that i can enable in Chrome and some worth flags to enable for more security/speed and for Omnibox-tweaks such as Favicons and need some good/virus-free, trusted (Black Theme for Chrome, from Chrome Store!) that is good for the eyes. Already have enabled these Flags on Windows/Android: Fast tab/window close Smooth Scrolling Material Design in the rest of the browser's native UI Number of raster threads Tab audio muting UI control Strict site isolation (i have it enabled but it doesn't increase my RAM i

  3. Software (all current as of Jan 13, 2018) OS: Win 7 x64 SP1 MB: Premium 3.3.1 AV: eSet v11 Roboform: Chrome x64 When I'd run Chrome with Roboform enabled, I'd notice lag and high CPU use (2-5% constant) for the Roboform process (rf-chrome-nm-host.exe) attached to Chrome. This does not occur when I use Firefox x64 with Roboform enabled - the same executable is used for Firefox and the filename is not specific for Chrome (weird huh?). I used Procmon (from Sysinternals) to see what the Roboform process was doing only when Chrome was in use. There's a constant registr
  4. I'm a fan of the Chrome browser's Desktop Icons†, and had several of them, principally an icon for my Gmail. After installing MalWareBytes, and running a scan, and then quarantining the 21 items found, I was horrified to discover that my Chrome Icons had disappeared. I've appended the log as Malwarebytes.txt so you can see which files had been quarantined. I re-built my desktop icons and the next day, after Malwarebytes had quarantined the same 21 items, the icons were gone again. I began to notice the pattern. How can I determine if these 21 items are false positives, or indic
  5. Hello I need some help getting rid of an unwanted malware that took over the search engine on my chrome. It seems to be from yahoo but it is a malware. Reading other posts I saw that I needed to post my own topic so here I am. I will attached a screenshot of this nightmare thanks in advance.
  6. My other machine is blocked from the Internet as reported by Chrome and IE. Malwarebytes is blocking outbound every few seconds, referring to dropbox,norton wifi privacy, chrome, etc. I ran both Norton and Malwarebytes without a cable or wireless enabled. Neither found any issue. I'm typing this from another machine using the same network with no issue. Two other machines have accessed the network, also with no issues. I need some assistance to get the faulty machine back online. Thanks. Joel
  7. Heya, So lately I've noticed that our computer has one PUP file in the Google Chrome directory that keeps popping up. I can delete it, but whenever we start Google Chrome it reappears in scans. When I delete it, Google Chrome shuts down. Last time I ran a scan and it seemed that our PUP file has multiplied itself, at least I suspect that (there where 75 PUP files suddenly). After deleting these, they haven't showed up again. Nevertheless, because of this I really want to get rid of that one single PUP file that keeps reappearing whenever I open Google Chrome. Its name is PUP.Optional
  8. About an hour ago malwarebytes suddenly began flagging a bunch of outbound and inbound processes on my computer as malicious. I ran a scan (which I do every hour automatically anyway) and it found nothing. I made sure my database was updated. I shut off my modem and computer, etc. I tried getting onto the internet with opera instead of chrome, but couldn't establish a secure connection from that browser either. I am only on the internet now because I disabled malwarebytes malware protection. I saved screen shots of quite a few of my errors though not all of them. I just renewed my Malwarebytes
  9. I installed Malwarebytes on my android phone, using recommended settings. No malware found. I had been using Firefox and Chrome. Now neither one functions. I can still make calls. Appreciate any replies, no comment is too basic....
  10. The Fastest and Safest Web browsing experience! I am pleased to announce the Early Technical Preview of Malwarebytes for Chrome. This extension will protect our users from web annoyances such as Tech Support Scams, Ads, Trackers and Clickbait. What is it? Malwarebytes for Chrome provides a safer and faster web browsing experience by cleaning up unwanted content, resulting in up to 3x faster webpage load times while saving megabytes of bandwidth. It is the world’s first innovative browser extension which heuristically identifies and blocks Tech Support Scams browser-lockers wh
  11. When I run Chrome, Malwarebytes popup indicates: "Malwarebytes blocking outbound n65adsrv.com" I found on this forum to run Farbar Recovery Scan Tool. I have done that. I have attached the two text files from Farbar: FRST.txt and addition.txt Addition.txt FRST.txt
  12. Hello again forum, Thank you again AdvancedSetup for helping me with my inclk problem. I logged into my other laptop to clean the same issue, and discovered some additional issues. Hoping to get some assistance please. I ran MalwareBytes and ADWCleaner a few times each. It looks like there are a couple of items that are persistent. 1. Myfree Codec, and 2. Freemake Video Converter. 3. Also, although not in the current set of logs, pup.optional.legacy was also persistent. I also have a number of other computers in my household. Should I post the
  13. On a daily basis Malwarebytes scans detect , Name= PUP.Optional.Conduit , Type = File , Location=C:\Users\usersname\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\SecurePrefences So my question is. Is chrome infected with a potential threat or could this be a valid chrome file that is being detected as a threat. Thanks for any input.
  14. I'm pretty sure that I know what caused the problem, I installed PDF Exchange and during the install I accidentally gave my permission for it to change my default search engine to Yahoo. When I changed back to Google it kept changing back to Yahoo on reboot. I managed to stop the reinstall of Yahoo by doing a cleanup of Chrome, including removing it & reinstalling, but now on bootup of the OS (W10) on starting Chrome hangs with a blank white screen. If I close the window & restart Chrome will restart asking if I want to restore tabs. It then works fine until the next reboot. I've done
  15. Starting on Friday the 13th, I've been having a lot of trouble. I suspect a virus. The first problem I noticed was with Firefox, my default browser. It would not launch. When I look in Task Manager only about 8000kb loads into memory and then it chokes. Sometimes if I reboot I can get Firefox to open. But if I click the wrong thing it hangs or freezes. Once that happens Firefox is "tainted" somehow and it gets stuck at around 8000kb no matter what I try. Once this happens I can't get my back-up browsers (Chrome, Opera, etc.) to launch either. While struggling with that I found that I cou
  16. Hello, I have looked at various post on how to remove yontoo with Malwarebytes and it has come to this. I have followed the steps posted here: https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/214325-chrome-secure-preferences-detection-always-comes-back/ I went ahead and turned off sync for all 3 accounts tied to my Chrome, removed all search engines except Google, and RESET Chrome. I was able to remove 3 of the 4 infections tied to it but the one infection cannot be quarantined at all...... Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. I have also tried HitmanPro as I saw in older post
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. 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?
  22. Anyone have a solution or advice on the issue... after quarantine select on all items... reboot does not eliminate this detection.
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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
