I have 32 items ( see att) that appear daily. I can't seem to delete them permanently, I must be doing something wrong, but with age cannot recall how I should proceed. Can someone, please help or remind me. The entries nearly all relate to PUPs, but how do I find the extension that is causing the problem and remove that to solve matter?

I am using Premium (free) 3.7.1

I'm confused. What attachment do you refer to? I cannot find fixlog.txt anywhere. Do you mean fixlist.txt, as per link at bottom of page?

Refer to post no. 4. The fixlist.txt is attached. 

Follow the instructions when downloaded.

I was expecting the Fixlog.txt.

If you have downloaded the Fixlist.txt (post no. 4) and placed that file in the folder in bold

Running from C:\Users\Gordon\Downloads then you need to run the Farbar program and click the Fix button.

The Fixlog.txt log will be created.

Post the log and let me know if the problem persists.

I am still floundering, but fixlog.txt is attached. None to sure I've got it right, and may have to abandon and perhaps just put up with problem.

Hi,

If the problem persists try this.

It may be Ads from the notification on the bottom and  right side of some pages.
Next time you see an ad click on the notice on the right of the task bar.
If you see a setting wheel open it and change the setting to stop the notifications.

The quarantine list reappeared, so I uninstalled Mbytes and cleaned any remaining debris vigorously, then reinstalled version with new download. At next daily scan the items surfaced again. I removed all extensions. Two daily scans since have reported clean.

I think the problem is solved.

Hi,

You did well but this one may have be the caused.

In post no.4 I suggested you remove this extension if it was not installed by you.
I think it was the culprit.

If you did not add this Chrome Extension pleas add the 2 line in the Fixlog.txt. Save the File. Do this before you run the fix.

Glad to see that all is well.

p.s.
If you reinstall the Chrome extension do it one at a time to make sure that it's not compromised.
