I keep getting website blocked due to trojan and other problems


Recommended Posts

I have been getting website blocked due to trojan. I had several threats removed via malwarebytes and adwcleaner, however, the website blocked due to trojan notifications continue and always for a site called the-extension.com. this is after running more threat scans and coming up clean

I tried to download adwcleaner from your site and chrome blocked the download, after allowing it to download, and doing a a custom threat scan, i had 6 PUP. since then i have ran another threat scan which comes up clean, but the above issue of website blocked due to trojan persists.

I will attach the reports and my most recent scan log

Thank you for the assistance

my system froze during the scan and i had to do a hard reset. after this i booted up Windows reconfigured some registry files and it said it is updating files. as if i had done a a Windows update. I got my system up and running, looks normal, still got an outbound connection website blocked notification from malwarebytes. Should I still reset the chrome Sync as instructed above?

Your copy of Chrome has probably been compromised

In addition to the requested log I posted above, I would like to mention something odd I noticed when i did a microsoft security essentials scan. When it was scanning windows installer files, many of the names had an odd chinese character in the names. I believe my windows installer files may be compromised

I do not use and devices synced to the computer.

I have done some browsing with Firefox and have had no notifications, Chrome has not caused any in over 48 hours either.

I will turn Sync off and see how it goes.

I would like to add that around a week before this issue started I had removed Trojan.StolenData via adwcleanr. It looked to have been successfully removed.

So far I have no more blocking due to trojan notification after using both chrome and Firefox with syncing off, however i did get an outbound block due to phishing.

I know my logs looked clean, but I would like to ask about this attached image. When I use Microsoft Security Essentials and it scans windows installer files, most have that chinese letter in the name, is that normal?
