A ****.tmp.exe files in the temp folder. Malware or a browser hijacker?


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,
 
So there is this virus/malware whatever you want to call it which bothers me every time I start my computer. Once windows 10 boots up and I open Google Chrome this random ****.tmp.exe file is generated in the temp folder. I have attached the file in the zip folder if you guys want to have a look at it (Please don't open the .exe file as it may affect your PC too). As soon as the files are created in the temp folder it also starts in processes. Multiple times I have done a clean uninstallation of Google Chrome and installed it back again but after opening and closing chrome 2-3 times again it gets affected (Without even logging in Google chrome and syncing the data). Google chrome starts flickering 4-5 times and when you search for a result it displays the less memory error. Also, it has affected Mozilla firefox too but not Edge and Internet E.
 
When the tmp.exe is working in the process all the search results are showed in cse i.e. google custom search which is annoying as hell. Once I kill the process and delete the tmp.exe file everything is back to normal but the flickering of Google Chrome is still there whenever I open Google Chrome. 
 
 Any solution for this problem? Have used CC Cleaner, tried full scan in Kaspersky, etc and still no help. In fact, since my Gmail account was logged in google chrome on my PC and Laptop earlier, this tmp.exe has also affected my laptop too. 
 
Please Help!
 
Thanks.

PC is working great. No problem or extra processes working in the background. But there is this one thing always bothering me, every time I Shutdown there is this pop up message which displays and vanishes quickly. Just wanted to know what is that message. Thanks a ton and keep up the good work!!
