Hi,

Thanks for your reply. I'm almost done with your instructions above just on quick question. When I get an blocked outbound notification from MB, does this mean I have some maleware somewhere on my computer system that is requesting to take me to another bad website ? Or is it a link or ad I clicked on and that is what is requesting my browser to go to bad website ? 

Just so I understand 

If it's something on my computer or if it could be just a link or website I visited that was trying to get an outbound connection to a bad website / IP 

Thanks 

Ok also as you requested I just finished all the steps above and created a system restore point 

So far I've tested the browser and I did not see any popups yet. And MB did not find anything bougus.. but it didn't find anything bougus even after I had all those outbound connections blocked, 

So that is why I asked about what does outbound connection blocked mean if it was something in my computer or just a link being block ? 

Thanks again for all your help in advance

Yes, outbound is something from your computer reaching out. In your case it looked like Google Chrome is/was the culprit why I asked you to clean it up.

Let me leave you with the following information to help you keep your system clean going forward. Unless there is something else you should be okay now.

 

 

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)
