Chrome opening a new spam tab every 40 min

Recommended Posts

Hi,

So my problem is that I downloaded a cracked game... (I know, I know, its full of malware) but this time I messed up and I got .exe that I think installed a malware, now it's opening a random spam tab in chrome every 40 mins or so. So first things that I did was deleting the .exe, after that, I went to Task Manager and saw that a unnamed Program was using 50% of my CPU... I went to File location and it was svhost... I then run a MalwareBytes scan with free premium trial and deleted everything that I didn't know what it was. So now what I do is I task kill the unnamed thing, but that doesnt block it from opening chrome pages...

P.S: sorry for my bad English I'm from Portugal.

Hi,

AlternateDataStreams: are normally deleted when the computer is restarted.

If these are set by your games they will be created again if needed.

The rest of the fix is just malware and must be removed.

Hey,

Here is the Fixlog.txt you asked for...

I see some .exe were "moved sucessfully". Where did they go ?

There was also an error, but you will see it by yourself in the .txt.

Im restarting the PC right now, I'll tell you if I still have any problem...
