In that case, you have a REAL problem, and probably the best is to dump the machine all together. Do not do anything with these yet! Google also releases official updates to Chrome OS every 6 weeks (and some unofficial ones in between) that bring new features, and security updates.
- That said, I can't see why you'd ever want to do this.
- The damage may not happen as soon as you acquire the malware; some malware is written to be activated remotely when needed, or to be activated on particular dates or after
- But Avast is one of the ones with a good reputation and one I list on my recommendations page.
- Virus protection won't start.
- Download the free version, install and run it, and see what it turns up.

Was not sure if I should write my own answer or edit this, but I started with editing this since it is a good answer to begin with. And reformatting and reinstalling is the only approach known to have a 100% success rate at malware removal. I'll save the "prevention is so much easier than the cure" missive for a moment.

Make sure you have the most up-to-date security measures to stay safe on the internet. AMAZING!

I've looked it up and it was defined as a browser hijacker. Maintain regular backups of all the important material on your computer, in case you ever need to recover from a major malware infection or any other disaster. Whatever any malware does stays in the sandbox and CAN'T infect my machine.

Reply admin says: October 27, 2016 at 11:25 pm That's not a virus. Do not, however, try to run more than one anti-virus program simultaneously, as you are likely to experience problems.
Removal Removal is not always successful and it can be very time time consuming but if it works then you still have all your programs, setting, data.
