real-time web protection disables when I visit Facebook with Chrome


Recommended Posts

My real-time web protection keeps disabling.  I've noticed that this seems to happen when I launch Chrome and use it to visit Facebook.  

When I reboot Windows, real-time web protection is back enabled, but as soon as I launch Chrome and open a tab to Facebook, I get the notification that it's disabled again, and I can't turn it back on until the next time I reboot Windows.

I surmise that something has infected my facebook profile with some kind of persistent javascript malware that is turning off web protection, but I don't detect anything.

I have tried doing a Chrome reset, and this didn't help.  I've also run scans with Malwarebytes, SpyBot Search & Destroy, and ccleaner, to no avail.

Greetings,

Please follow the instructions in this topic and create a new thread in the malware removal area including the requested logs and information by clicking here and one of our malware removal specialists will assist you in checking and cleaning your PC of any threats as soon as one becomes available.

Also, in the meantime you might try the Malwarebytes browser extension beta which is available for Chrome and all other Chromium based browsers as it protects against the same sites as the Web Protection component in Malwarebytes in addition to adding new capabilities to block even more malicious sites as well as many ads and tracking servers to guard your privacy.  At least this way, assuming it works while visiting Facebook, you'll still have protection for your browser while your PC is being cleaned up.  The extension can be found here.
