  1. Today, from out of the blue, my Chrome web browser notified me that: "Chrome detected that your browser settings may have been changed without your knowledge. Would you like to reset them to their original defaults?".... what just happened? I did some searching around, and found this news article, published within the last 8 hours. After reading suggestions by Google that I may have acquired malware of a sort, I decided to do a scan with Malwarebytes Pro in safemode. It found "hijack.drives" (attached), which it then prompted to quarantine. How the heck did this get on my system, and is it something I should be concerned about?? The name of the find itself doesn't sound very friendly, and the fact my browser settings was changed by some unknown entity has had me paranoid. I have no idea if this "hijack.drives" is linked to the Chrome problem above. A pinned listing posted today on the Google Chrome Forums state that the 'reset' message is related to Chrome extensions. I found another article posted today regarding cleanup written by the vice-president of engineering. Can someone help me make sense of all this? I don't quite know what to do. A lot of the extensions I use contain sensitive information, such as the Lastpass extension which contains all my passwords. I'm hoping that nothing else inside my browser was exploited except browser settings. I'm tempted to do a System Restore to reverse what has happened:
