How can I get rid of this virus?

Recommended Posts

Every time I open google chrome I'm met with a warning from Malwarebytes telling me that a trojan called metriq.xyz has been blocked. Has anyone had this issue and know how to stop it?

Unfortunately uninstalling Google Chrome doesn't do anything. As soon as you install and use again all the garbage flows right back into the system.

If the detection is always in the Chrome folders then it is 100% due to issues with Chrome. I can help you but please try to follow the directions in that topic again first.

Thank you
