But I don't have google chrome, I use mozilla.  I deleted Google Chrome.  So now what do I do? 

I will ket @Aura Guide you from here. please provide the following logs.

Please download the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system.

You can check here if you're not sure if your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to the disclaimer.
  • Press the Scan button.


  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
  • The first time the tool is run, it also makes another log (Addition.txt). If you've run it before it may not and you may need to select it manually
  • Please attach both logs to your reply if possible. Otherwise, you may copy/paste the logs directly if you have to, but an attachment is better.
  • To save attachments please click the link as shown below. Then browse to where your file is located and select it and click the Open button.

Alright. Close Google Chrome, and and go in the following folder:


Now, look for the "Backup Default" folder, and rename it to "Backup Default Old". Once done, restart your Google Chrome. Are your settings (bookmarks, extensions, history, etc.) still there?

As long as Google Chrome isn't installed on your system, you don't need to worry. Though if you reinstall it and sign back into Chrome with your Google account, it'll comeback. The detection is for one entry in a Chrome settings file. All we need to do is to manually find and remove that setting in Chrome, and the detection will go away.
