Malwarebytes cannot remove Adware Chrome Extension: "Safe Torrent Scanner"


Recommended Posts

I've accidently installed  what appears to be a malicious extension to my Chrome profile. I run a scan on Malwarebytes. It detects some adware (in the Appdata/Local/Chrome... etc directory). Quarantines it. I restart my PC just like it tells me to do. After the restart as long as I don't open the chrome it doesn't detect anything on the scans. But, when I open and close the chrome it starts detecting the same adware again and again. (I actually repeated the whole proccess 4-5 times, but to no avail.)

Note: The extension in question does not appear under the "extensions" section in chrome. I've also tried adware cleaner. The same thing I've described above is happened. How can I get rid of this thing? Can you help me? 

Thank you.

Oh- You better be sure I'm done with the Chrome. I am only gonna use it to watch Youtube. 😅 

I followed the instructions from the provided link. It seems to be worked. Scans came up normal. 

After trying so many things, the solution is almost comical. 

Thank you.
