  1. Hi there, I have an infection on my PC from pup.optional.searchmanager. MWB is showing up 3 files in GOOGLE\CHROME\USER DATA\Default\Secure Preferences and 1 registry value in GOOGLE\CHROME\PREFERENCEMACS\Default\extensions.settings I've tried all the methods in this post (sign out / reset sync / reset Chrome / deleting all other search engines in Chrome), but they keep showing back up. I've also tried AdWCleaner. It seems to find / quarantine / delete the files but they always show up again in the next scan. Also, I have another PC synced up to the same Chrome account and it's fine, there's nothing showing up on MWB scan on that one. Files attached. Any help would be appreciated 👍 Shaun Addition.txt FRST.txt MWBScanResult.txt
  2. 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 fix it?
