    MSRT wants to reset Chrome message


    I am not sure if Soctuseer is my problem as I cannot find any trace anywhere - either in Task Manager or via Malwarebytes or full Defender scans. I recently disabled Kaspersky IS 2015 (not uninstalled as yet, so has just upgraded itself to 2016 this a.m.!) and fired up Defender as an interim precaution. I had also deleted all Firefox traces and installed Chrome instead - this is all because I was having major and regular crashes that seemed to relate to one or the other. Since this action I have had no crash problems (so far - touch wood). But suddenly today I started getting a new pop-up box every time I start up Chrome (only) as follows:

    This appears over a faded-out and new opened settings tab. The link opens Chrome's own advice page on resetting settings. The last KB890830 update was on 09/11/16, so perhaps the new one will cover it? However, there are no other funny pop-ups or ads, so maybe not. If this is a genuine MRT warning, it doesn't make sense ... why now, and why Dec 2015?! The first time it came up I did reset the settings as they were newly installed anyway. But now it is becoming boring. Either way, I would like to stop it, if possible.

    Any ideas would help - thanks.
