What did MB do to Chrome???

I'm sure they would want to know what happened.

You can always jut reset it:

https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/2765944?hl=en

How is it???

MrC

Oh, it wasn't MB(Malwarebytes?) that did it, it was ADWCleaner. ADWCleaner "quarantined" my Chrome extensions and somehow my "preferences" file. I believe I posted the ADW log like you asked. At any rate Chrome was acting crazy telling me it couldn't "save my preferences" and randomly crashing or just not starting up properly. I completely uninstalled Chrome and reinstalled it only to find out that it was still telling me my preferences could not be saved. I Googled a walk-through fix for that issue and all is good now. It was odd that it was still having trouble after I completely uninstalled and reinstalled though.

I'm not sure then, perhaps Chrome just didn't like it removing the extensions in the manner in which it did. All I can say is Chrome was fine before I ran ADWcleaner and then it wasn't after I ran it. All is good now though.

OK....the logs looks good.

A little clean up to do....

Please Uninstall ComboFix: (if you used it)

Press the Windows logo key + R to bring up the "run box"

Copy and paste next command in the field:

ComboFix /uninstall

Make sure there's a space between Combofix and /

cf2.jpg

Then hit enter. (it may look like CF is re-installing but it's not)

This will uninstall Combofix, delete its related folders and files, hide file extensions, hide the system/hidden files and clears System Restore cache and create new Restore point

(If that doesn't work.....you can simply rename ComboFix.exe to Uninstall.exe and double click it to complete the uninstall or download and run the uninstaller)

---------------------------------

bwebb7v.jpgDownload Delfix from here and save it to your desktop. (you may already have this)

  • Ensure Remove disinfection tools is checked.
  • Click the Run button.
  • Reboot
Any other programs or logs that are still remaining, you can manually delete. (right click.....Delete)

IE: RogueKiller.exe, RKreport.txt, RK_Quarantine folder, C:\FRST folder, FRST-OlderVersion folder, MBAR folder, etc....AdwCleaner > just run the program and click uninstall.

Note:

If you used FRST and can't delete the quarantine folder:

Download the fixlist.txt to the same folder as FRST.exe.

Run FRST.exe and click Fix only once and wait

That will delete the quarantine folder created by FRST.

The rest you can manually delete.

Try moving FRST64.exe and the fixlist.txt to your desktop, then click Fix

Let me know, MrC

Moving it to the desktop didn't work, but logging into the admin account and then running it from there finally did the trick.
