I have ADS X malware installed, and unable to delete it.  Each time I search for anything I get several extra responses at the top of the result lists, and a small almost imperceprtible "ADS X" text at the right where I can close that irrelevant results, but still the listing has several bad responses.

 

MALWAREBYTES was unable to remove that ADS X , Malwarebytes is not aware of it existence.  REIMAGE CLEANER detects the malware but I don't want to pay them for the removal.  Why Malwarebytes is not detecting it but others do?

I took a look at the data you sent me privately, and I don't see anything at all suspicious installed on your computer. This does not appear to be caused by malware or adware installed on your computer.

I noticed that you're using google.com.mx (the Mexican address for Google), and can't say whether this is simply normal for your region, or whether this is some kind of advertising being injected at the network level. Is the 'X' in Ads X actually a close button, that removes those ads from the search results?

Thanks ted.  I have tree Macbooks at home and the other 2 does not have the Ads X thing there. I also reviewed the Chrome extensions and settings with no sucess,  and yes, clicking on the Ads X tyhing closes the unwanted found set.

I suspect that Google may decide whether to show that based on cookies, or something similar, so the affected Mac may have a cookie that the other two don't. You can try clearing cookies and see if that makes any difference, though be aware that this will log you out of any sites you're logged into.
