  1. at first this didnt bother me until i remembered i uninstalled chrome a while ago (it wouldn't keep me synced to my account)
  2. From Browser Guard combats privacy abuse, tracking, clickbait, and scammers | Malwarebytes Labs: Where Malwarebytes Browser Guard alone is installed: what's the database update frequency?
  3. Hi, I have Malwarebytes Premium installed which does not give me any kind of problem in the scan, but if I run Adwcleaner it is a "PUP.Optional.Legacy Chrome Avira SafeSearch Plus extension". After removing it through Adwcleaner, on the next restart Google Chrome installs it again even if I deny the authorization. I searched on the forum and in the closed post "I'm infected - What do I do now?" it was written to open a new one with the FRST.txt and Addition.txt files attached and so here I am. The result of Adwcleaner is also attached. Thank you. Addition.txt FRST.txt
  4. OK here is the issue a few days ago i noticed this weird extention i had in google chrome it had different words and numbers all together ill just make one up to show you "48u5km543n3ht8ou3tnrtn84" it was weird and i used malwarebytes to remove it i clicked manage extention to find it was >1 MB and had all controls so that was super creepy and something else that was extra creepy was that it was given a "colour" to make it blend in with the background of chrome so i couldent see it i was poking around there and i found there was a way i could go into my file explorer to find whe
  5. If this needs to be be in a different forum please let me know where is needs to be posted. Thanks. When Google Chrome launched two BlockBlock ksinstall notifications for GoogleSoftwareUpdateAgent are presented. I have attached a screenshot that includes both notifications. I have selected the 'remember' checkbox, then clicked the 'Allow' button many times. They still are presented each time Chrome is launched. Is there something that I should do to prevent this, other than not using Chrome?
  6. The problem is when ever I quarantine PUP.Optional.EasyLife after opening up chrome again it comes back if I scan again. it's located in C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default and it is the Secure Prefrences file. I think it's something to do with chrome sync which brings back the PUP after I reopen chrome. I don't want to clear my chrome sync data like passwords and bookmarks, anyone know how I can resolve this issue. maybe just edit the secure preferences file using notepad++ idk anyone else have this problem and figured out how to f
  7. Hello everyone, I just read this article and got a little worried: https://www.howtogeek.com/fyi/bing-is-pushing-malware-when-you-search-for-chrome/ I have three quick questions that I hope someone could help me with: 1. If you actually run that phony installer, will it still act as the official installer? As in everything will act normally but you actually have a hidden malware in your Chrome? 2. If I installed Chrome a while ago, how can I check that my installation is genuine and not a fake Google Chrome? I don' have the installer anymore. 3. Would a Malwarebyt
  8. My mother recently informed me of invasive pop-ups on her computer, and having had previous experience with Conduit malware, my heart sank :( Sure enough, she somehow downloaded malware, showing up as "Microsoft Office 365 - en-us" from "Microsoft Corporation", "version 16.0.10730.20102". I've run Malwarebytes, HItmanpro, and have Revo uninstaller at the ready, but have not found a site that can tell me how to remove it all, and it's been years since I had Conduit, so my memory's a little fuzzy. The Malwarebytes report is attached below- Please HELP!! malware1.txt
  9. Hello, I searched on internet and on the forums here but cound't find what I'm looking for. I have been using AdwCleaner for a long time, and never found something that couldn't be removed by it. The problem is this: I removed all malware from the computer with antivirus and antimalware software, everything seemed to be running ok, but as soon as I open Google Chrome, it displays the Chrome Cleaner Pro extension/add-on and 3 more unwanted extensions. If I check the computer with AdwCleaner it does detect the malware and removes it but not completely I guess, since after every re
  10. After updating Chrome, Adwcleaner detected 2 PUP ... Is this a mistake? Sorry for using Google translate to submit this report. Edit: I've already signed in to multiple Google Accounts on Chrome.
  11. Google Chrome keeps opening a second process of itself without a window (there's only the window I have open). If I look in Task Manager, the website on it is things like "Crusty (Insert words)", Facebook login, and about:blank. The second process doesn't close when I close Google Chrome and it reopens itself if I close it even if the other Google Chrome isn't open. I have background sync off and it uses the same file as the Google Chrome process that DOES open a window. I need to know how to get rid of it without removing Google Chrome entirely (yes, I tried reinstalling Google Chrome, it did
  12. Hi guys, Everytime I open Google Chrome, Malwarebytes blocks an Outbound Connection to hanstrakr.com. This started happening recently, and there's nothing funky going on in my Extensions, Sync, or Search Engine settings. I'm unsure of where it's coming from. Not much is said on it accept that it may be connected to Data Mining, but even those people aren't certain. Below is a list of the most recent Outbound Connection it made. Does anyone know what this is, and how to stop it? --- Malwarebytes www.malwarebytes.com -Log Details- Protection Event Date: 5/21/18
  13. Me too! Just started yesterday, please advise whether we should be concerned and how to proceed.
  14. Did the same as coug, removed "Flash Video Downloader´╗┐", installed it again and from now on everything is ok, no more riskware warning . Thanks for the hint!
  15. I recently installed Chrome onto my laptop in order to use a certain website (worldspinner), and Malwarebytes picked up its Web Data and Sync Data as a PUP. Since I have used Chrome in the past this should not be picking up as such, and I have not installed any suspicious/malicious extenstions either. Chrome's PUPs.txt
  16. Every time I google a photo and would like to save it. I click save picture as, and then it goes into my Pictures folder but it saves as a BoBrowser HTML. I do not know how to fix this. I have completely removed BoBrowser by using both the Malwarebytes and by using ADWCleaner. I also have uninstalled and reinstalled Google Chrome and still found no success. I have tried Internet Explorer and this problem does not transfer over to Explorer, but I would prefer to use Google Chrome. If anyone knows how to fix this please help me.
  17. Been having a lot of problems with MWB crashing Google Chrome every time it finishes scanning. It's happening on more than one computer, so it's not just a localized issue. How can I stop this?
  18. Hi, 2 days ago this nightmare started. As always I was doing a scan with Malwarebytes and 4 problems came out: 2 of them have been solved, the others no. Their name is Adware.Elex.ShrtCln and they're located in C:\Users\bruno\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\USER DATA\Default\Web Data. Useless to say that when Malwarebytes delete them, when i restart my pc they return. I've installed a new copy of windows, a clean installation obiviously, and until I haven't reinstalled Chrome, the problem did not show up. Now, what I have to do? Thanks if you will answer, i hope fast because i'm a littl
  19. Hi, I have been a Malwarebytes user for about 3 years now I have not been disappointed until now. I decided to do one of my occasional PC scans and for some reason, Google chrome got flagged up immediately. according to Malwarebytes, the file is called "Web Data". something else that's odd is that Malwarebytes refuses to touch it. I had deleted the file manually and malware bytes had not detected anything else but google chrome had signed me out of my account. signing back in and re-scanning had bought the false positive back. this issue also occurs in my college notebook as seen in the images
  20. Not sure why but Malwarebytes is closing Google Chrome to clean up a PUP in my Chrome/User Data folder. This is happening at every scan (which I have run multiple times a day) and takes my workflow and shoots it in the face. Not sure what this pup is from (Extension, Theme File, Etc) nor if I can/how to/should I make an exception for this. Thanks :3 mb-check-results.zip omgsthap.txt
  21. Hi Aura I have this problem for 1 week I have followed all the procedure carefully but the deleted malware get back even me often find closed my google chrome Giorgio
  22. Hi, I downloaded a mallicous file which installed several things on my computer in Russian language. There was a 'hijack' file, 'Chromium', 'Smart application controller' and some other malware which I luckily could remove (think so) with malwarebytes. Google Chrome in particular was kind of hacked and still has some issues while opening, like russian pop-ups coming on screen. I think Malwarebytes has already removed the greatest part, but I still find some random russian files or links on my computer which weren't detected by Malware nor Bullguard (my antivirus). Also all my Word/Ex
  23. Every time I use google chrome once in a while a new tab shows up and have a ad in it. I already follow all steps to remove a malware/adware, and I even reformat my OS hard drive. Please help me.
  24. This one really had me tearing my hair out..... Subsequent to an MB automatic update, two older PC's in the same office, both running Windows 10 32-bit with latest MS patches, began to experience issues with loading the latest versions of Chrome and Firefox. In the case of Chrome, it would display boxes for a few different extensions saying they had "crashed." These extensions included Adobe Acrobat and Google Hangouts. I searched the Google forums, and nothing they suggested worked. Then someone suggested Norton AV could be causing the problem. But that wasn't it. It was Malwarebyte
