Malwarebytes keeps blocking an outbound connection to domclickext.xyz, but can't find where the file is coming from after multiple scans. I've uninstalled Chrome and started with a clean install and it's still coming back. 

I've attached a text log of the protection event. If there is anything else I can provide, please let me know. 

Thank you in advance.

Thank you for the reply. I followed the directions, and after a few failed attempts, I ultimately uninstalled Chrome, deleted all browser data, and reinstalled it. So far, the attempted outbound connection hasn't come back. While scanning, neither Malwarebytes nor Adwcleaner could find any issues (nor could any other software, for that matter). 

Thank you for the help, Ron. I appreciate it.

You're quite welcome. Let me leave you with the following advice to help you keep your system safe and clean going forward.

 

Let's get real. If you're not backing up your data and you're still using Google Chrome then you're just not serious about Privacy, Safety, and protecting your data. Malwarebytes is a fantastic program but you still need to back up your data and you still need to block scripts and Ads in your browser. 
If you're still using Google Chrome I would highly suggest you consider using Firefox instead. For more advanced users you might consider installing NoScript as well (it does have a higher learning curve though)
