Chrome constantly causing sophos alert

Recommended Posts


I recently installed some shady files accidentally and since then any Web page opened up with chrome has had many aleats from Sophos Home. All the alerts are different, however the common link is that they are all some website comprised of a few letters followed by .loggr.info. If I then close chrome it will refuse to open again until I reboot the laptop. I have attempted to solve this issue through the use of malwarebytes, ADWCleaner and hitmanpro, however none of these have solved, or even reduced the issue. Furthermore, since installing malwarebytes another alert has come up from chrome stating that malwarebytes has blocked the website eluxer.net. I am running Windows 10 with the latest update on a HP Notebook 15.  Any help would be immensely appreciated.

I would like to thank you for taking the time to respond, however I no longer need your assistance.

I was initially unable to download FRST, as no browser installed would function with the laptop in the state that it was. Because of this, I had to remedy the situation another way, and was able to restore the computer to a previous state. Since restoring the computer, any and all traces of the malware present have gone.

Thank you for initially responding, and I apologise if I unnecessarily took time out of your day.
