Step 1

Please update your Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and perform a threat scan. Post your log file in next reply.

Step 2

Download attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop.

NOTE. It's important that both files, FRST/FRST64 and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work.

NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on that particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system

Run FRST/FRST64 and press the Fix button just once and wait.

If for some reason the tool needs a restart, please make sure you let the system restart normally. After that let the tool complete its run.

When finished FRST will generate a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt). Please post it to your reply.

Okay, after uninstalling and reinstalling Google Chrome I did a threat scan and showed nothing. Anyways, after opening Google Chrome and logging in to sync and complete the setup I did another threat scan, but this time the Malware showed up again. Do you think one of the extensions is causing that?

 

1 is for the first scan, 2 for the second scan.

 

 

Also, I've added a new scan in Farbar and I'll be attaching that also.

Okay, looks like I fixed my problem, but I'm not sure if it's temp or for good.

 

I uninstalled Google Chrome and installed it again. However, this time when I logged in I checked on "Choose what to syncand I didn't check the extensions.

 

I also did a new Farbar scan. I'll keep you updated if anything happens.  :D
