Hello, I've recently been fighting some nasty malware that has creeped into my computer that I built a little over a year ago and was working flawlessly up until last month. It started when I noticed some intrusive ads in my Google searches and an extension in my Chrome browser that I didn't recognize nor installed myself. Since then I've done a series of uninstalls and removals on the unwanted programs and extensions using several programs (Mostly Spybot Search & Destroy and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware). At first it looked like I got rid of everything unwanted but I noticed that every so many days the ads and malware kept returning, so I slowly but surely chipped away at finding the source of the problem and I seem to have gotten rid of the bulk of it presently but there's at least one malware that I just can't find and eliminate. It's something that causes my Chrome browser to redirect to an undesired web page when I open a new window in Chrome. It doesn't happen frequently; only once every hour or so. In the meantime, I can open dozens of new windows and tabs without any problems. For the most part, my browsing experience is pleasurable and I simply end the task on the Chrome window that occasionally gets redirected. Other than that, my computer's running fine, so I would simply like help trying to track down this piece of malware that's causing my Chrome to redirect please. Attached are the FRST.txt and Addition.txt files generated from Farbar's Recovery Scan Tool. The two security softwares I'm presently using are Microsoft Security Essentials and Spybot Search & Destroy. I've ran several threat scans in Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and it never detects any threats. Please let me know if there's any other additional system or setup information you guys need and I will be happy to provide it. FRST.txt Addition.txt
