Malwarebytes blocking screensrc.com for Trojan

Recommended Posts

A few days ago I began getting a pop-up warning from Malwarebytes stating it was blocking a website due to Trojan. I posted  the problem in a topic in this forum. I got a response the warning was due to some sort of adware script. The problem is the file that Malwarebytes is telling me that's infected is my Google Chrome files. It seems Chrome is trying to auto-connect to this site.

I received a reply to that post which advised me to try downloading and running AdwCleaner. I did that but I'm still getting the warning pop-up. I was then advised to download and run the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool which I did. I ran a scan but Malwarebytes didn't find any problems so I don't have a threat scan log. However, I did attach the log from Malwarebytes I had attached to my previous post along with the 2 files that were generated when I ran the recovery scan tool. 

Thanks for your help.

I tried everything in the suggested topic. I made sure I followed the steps exactly but it didn't help. I'm still getting the trojan warning.
