No, I haven't! Is it free, or not? Should I disable my Kaspersky antivirus before scan?

Yes, it's free.  You only pay if you want the Premium real-time protection features.  It scans for threats and removes them for free without a license.  You can see a comparison between free and Premium if you scroll down to the middle of this page.

edit and no, you don't need to disable Kaspersky but you can if you want.

Many thanks for your kind help!

Malwarebytes 3 have removed it finally indeed!

As you said it found 3 more files with this threat that where located in my Chrome user's directory. (See the picture 1).

So Malwarebytes have rewrote these 3 files and deleted 3 registry entries concerning this threat. (See the picture 2).

Now I have opened Chrome again and scanned with ADWCleaner and everything is clean! Than you so much again!!!

Please explain if Malwarebytes is antivirus software, or is it something like an add-on to the antivirus software? As I know, you should better run only one antivirus program on your PC to avoid interfere with each other. So, if can i use it together with my antivirus all the time, or should I better run only one of them?

That's great news, I'm glad that I was able to help :) !

Malwarebytes is not an antivirus and has been engineered specifically to be able to run it together in real-time with an active, up-to-date antivirus solution so you shouldn't have any problems.

With that said, the combination of technologies in Malwarebytes Premium should be sufficient on their own to keep you safe online if you do ever decide to run it without an AV, however the choice is entirely up to you because the Developers of Malwarebytes have always, and continue to work hard to ensure that it doesn't conflict with antivirus and other security solutions as much as they possibly can and the Malwarebytes Quality Assurance (QA) team is always testing each release of Malwarebytes Premium alongside many different AVs to check for any compatibility problems so that they can report them to the Developers to fix.  Now, having said all of that, there is actually a known issue with some versions of Kaspersky which is documented here so if you run into any problems enabling the Web Protection component in Malwarebytes, then you may need to disable the rootkit scanning component in Kaspersky.  I believe this issue occurs because when Kaspersky's rootkit scan runs, it prevents many types of drivers from loading and Malwarebytes Web Protection uses a driver for its protection that it must unload and reload each time Malwarebytes updates the Web Protection database (a block list of known bad websites) meaning after Kaspersky has run its rootkit scan which runs automatically when the system is idle I believe, it prevents Malwarebytes from loading Web Protection the next time that Malwarebytes updates.

I believe that's the only known issue though, and I don't recall hearing of any other antivirus compatibility problems recently.

If there is anything else we might assist you with please don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks :)

As the originator of this thread, I'm glad to see that some are getting relief; however my problem has not improved any.  In fact, the last 

AdwCleaner 7.2.4.0  run, a few minutes ago, revealed even more items detected.   I have attached the log.    I also continue to run Malwarebytes Premium every morning.  I also ran Malwarebytes anti-rootkit yesterday, and it found no threats.

Is it possible that the only way to get rid of these threats is to reset Windows 10?  I hope not; because I really don't want to re-install a bunch of apps.

If the detections keep returning then it could be a threat on the system that is resurrecting them that isn't being detected.  I would recommend following the instructions in this topic and creating a new topic in the malware removal area including the requested information and logs by clicking here and one of our malware removal specialists will assist you with this as soon as one becomes available.  They should be able to assist you in cleaning up the system without needing to reinstall Windows.

My Malwarebytes is doing full scan every time I start my PC using lots of CPU power. How can I disable it and use only manual scan?

The other thing I have noticed that Malwarebytes automatically blocks some files that I trust (Bittorrent). Is there an option that would allow me to choose which files to block? Thanks!

To disable the scan at startup, you can change how the scheduled scan works.  By default it is set to run as soon as possible after missing its last scheduled time (like if the PC was off during its normal scheduled scan time).  To do so, open Malwarebytes and go to Settings>Scan Schedule and double-click on the entry there to open the edit window and click on Advanced near the bottom which will expand the edit dialog, then uncheck the box next to Recover missed tasks then click OK.  It should no longer scan when the PC starts up, just be aware that if the PC is off when a scheduled scan is set to occur, it won't run again until the next scheduled time.

As for Bittorrent, if it is blocking downloads by blocking seeders/leeches (IP addresses from other Bittorrent users), then you'll want to exclude Bittorrent's main EXE (the one showing up in the Malwarebytes Web Protection tray notifications as the source of the blocks) by following the instructions found on this page under the section called Exclude an Application that Connects to the Internet.  You can find more info about why peer-to-peer (P2P) applications like Bittorrent are often blocked by Malwarebytes Web Protection by reviewing the information found here.

If that wasn't the issue or you need assistance with something else please let us know.

Thanks
