Multiple detections for chrome accessing fastsearch.me

Recommended Posts

MB is (correctly as far as I can see) continuously (every 20 mins or so) blocking access to fastsearch.me from chrome. In addition, there are odd instances of other sites, such as stat1.info and adultsonly.pro being blocked.
I've run a manual scan of my system and MB shows the machine as 100% clean.

These two statements appear contradictory - either something has crawled inside chrome and is trying to outbound to these sites, or the machine is clean. I'm inclined to the former.
I've had a quick web search and can't find anything reliable about fixing this other than multitudinous sites trying to sell me their particular removal tools.

Does anyone have some advice?

It sounds like there may be some issues with Chrome that Malwarebytes is failing to detect, though it is still blocking the resulting connection attempts.  I would suggest following the instructions in this topic then creating a new topic in our malware removal area by clicking here and a malware removal specialist will guide you in checking and cleaning your system of any threats.

They should be able to find the culprit(s) in Chrome and get it/them cleaned up for you.

If there is anything else we might help with please let us know.
