I need you to do it one more time, but make sure to follow the instructions exactly as I tell you.

 

1. Let Chrome stay open.

2. Run MalwareBytes and make a scan. When mysearchdial is detected quarantine it. Do not open Chrome, MalwareBytes should close it doing a quarantine process.

3. Run Chrome analyzer script after a scan making sure you do not open chrome and attach analysis.txt

 

Thanks!

Sorry for the delay @TwinHeadedEagle...I was on a flight. 

Attached is the analysis.txt file after following steps 1 thru 3 above.

Thanks guys. That was enough info for now.

You can try to fix it by resetting you sync. Go to this link: https://chrome.google.com/sync

You should click reset sync there. Then uninstall and install Chrome again and log in into your google account.

You can export bookmarks before doing it, just click Shift + Ctrl + O on your keyboard and click on three dots in to top right corner. There is an option Export bookmarks.

So in the end, this isn't dangerous for the machine, correct?

Also, for anyone who syncs, bookmarks should re-populate if they were also selected to sync.

Thanks for looking into this @TwinHeadedEagle.

I rebuilt my PC a week or so ago and have also been asked to quarantine these files whenever I start my PC. If it's nonthreatening can you please remove the alert? If not, how can I prevent it occurring? Thanks
