I'm running Windows 10 and primarily use Chrome. I have blocked website reports for "minisrclink.cool" and my computer is obviously infected with something so I assume it's that adware. My homepage hasn't been effected and I don't see any strange programs on my computer or extensions on my chrome browser. Whatever it is has drastically slowed my computer and my destop often disapears(goes blank, no start menu, only the programs that were maximazed at the time are available unless I do something like act like I'm going to save the webpage which brings up explorer and then opening folders that way) and I have to log out or restart to get it to come back. Seems like I need a custom file to use FBST. The more I read, the more confused I am. Seems like there are multiple ways to get rid of it.

Thanks!

Please download the attached Fixlist.txt file to  the same folder where the Farbar tool is running from.
The location is listed in the 3rd line of the FRST.txt log you have submitted.

Run FRST and click Fix only once and wait.

The Computer will restart when the fix is completed.

It will create a log (Fixlog.txt) please post it to your reply.

If the problem persists and Chrome is Synced with other Devices check this out.

Execute the suggested fix.

Restart the computer normally.

Please post the Fixlog.txt and let me know what problem persists.

p.s.
You probably removed AVG and I still see remnant entries in your logs.
Download and run their uninstaller tool from this site.

Restart the computer when the installation is completed.
