No luck, turned off sync, reset all cookies and cache, uninstalled and reinstalled and used Malwarebytes to get rid of malware twice and it keeps coming back after reboot. I've attached a log from a the most recent Malwarebytes scan.

I cannot use that topic because I do not own Windows 10 Professional, Windows 10 Enterprise or Windows 10 Education which are required to download the Group Policy Management console. I own Windows 10 Home.

Copy all the text IN THE QUOTE BOX below to notepad. Save it as fixme.reg to your desktop.
Be sure the "Save as" type is set to "all files" Once you have saved Right click the .reg file and allow it to merge with the registry.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]
[HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-1747705853-2947177505-3204008702-1001\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]

Restart the computer when completed.

You can delete the fixme.reg file when done.

Is the problem solved?

The only thing left for me to suggest is to reset your Router it may be compromised.

Reset your router. It may be infected.

Then, please reconfigure it back to your preferred setting.. Below is the list of default username and password, should you don't know it ;)

If the problem persists start a new topic in the Malwarebytes' Support Forum.

Create a new topic and see what they can do to get MBAM to remove this completely.
