Can't Remove PUP.Optional.Astromenda.A

Recommended Posts

I have tried all of the methods that I can think off and nothing will remove this thing. Its synced itself to my google account preferences. I scanned my other pc that chrome is synced to the same account and it shows the same infection now. Its location is user/appdata/local/google/chrome/user data/default/prefernces. I have tried Malwarebytes, ADW, HitmanPro,Eset Online scanner, and SuperAntiSpyware. I even went into the file my self in wordpad and found the entry, removed the entry from the code, but it just keeps coming back. This is the code i found in word pad .

I am out of Ideas guys. I got this from some freeware that had it bundled, and I unchecked the option to install it, but the wizard installed it any way. Here is the Malwarebytes log.
