Same Detections keep coming back I delete them over and over and over again

Recommended Posts

Hey so I followed this guide here https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/258886-chrome-secure-preferences-detection-always-returns/

It seemed to solve the issue but what im asking is basically. Does the method in that forum post I linked actually delete the malware? Or does it just block Malwarebytes from detecting it. If its malware I want to get rid of it. 

I have a txt file from saving the results of the scan if youd like me to send it. Im just not sure if theres private information inside of it about my desktop.
