Hi, My chrome browser on the new windows 8 laptop opens yahoo search by default. I have tried changing this and a couple of anti virus and malware removal tools but of no help. Came across a few entries here like the one below where this has been resolved by your help. https://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?s=5b2cb85031fe0d71fbd36cd90812424f&showtopic=143966 Could you please help resolve the issue on my laptop? Thanks!
Hello Guys, I came here through a search for a solution to random pop-ups in my brand new laptop with Win8, google chrome. Like yesterday first a random page opened and it seemed valid...today it happened again. Both of the pages are pretty well done. Unfortunatelly I have no screen, will make screen nextime if necessary. The pup-ups came out of nowhere and I am sure I did not even click anything. I started to use the new computer mainly cause my oldone with XP was infected. I use flashdisc to copy necessary data from one computer to another...maybe that caused the infection transfere - I used this flashdisc to install KasperskyAV on the new system. Ofcourse I run a scan right away but nothing was found. Now I looked at this thread: https://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=124537 And am pretty scared what is in front of me. The system is brand new, so not many applications are intalled and used only for several days. PLEASE let me know how to procede in order to get rid of any possible infection. Thank you H.
