    That's the same basic idea, but the link is before MBAM bought ADWCleaner to address just this problem. As suggested, the OP needs to download and run ADWCleaner to get rid of the PUPs and browser hijackers and any toolbars, etc. that come with these issues. MBAM/ADWCleaner has made many improvements since then. As yet, the OP has not responded with any progress. He has 2 choices now to attack it.

    Thanks for your post.

    "Browser hijackers use different methods for distributing themselves. This particular one was bundled with other software."

    This person is using "Chrome" as their web browser.
    Chrome is a web browser (and an OS) made in part by Google. In other words, Google Chrome is the thing you use to look at stuff on the Internet, and Google is how you find stuff to look at. ... Google is the world's largest search engine Google, google chrome is the development of a browser, so there is no difference!
    I don't believe ADWCleaner will get rid of the problem f14tomcat

    Uninstallation Of Pup.optional.searchmanager.bitsrst From Google Chrome

    • Step 1: Open Google Chrome browser and click on Settings icon (=).
    • Step 2: Click Tools option and choose Extensions.
    • Step 3: From the opened Extension Window you need to locate Pup.optional.searchmanager.bitsrst if found then click on the garbage bin icon appear on right of it.

    Pup.optional.searchmanager.bitsrst is a bogus OS threat which considered to be very severe malware categories that is still known and distributed by the cyber criminal to get control over compromised OS user. So if you recognized with this Pup.optional.searchmanager.bitsrst then you don't need to be surprised because usually such type of infection secretly get propagated in your OS without you knowledge. Once install then it will very fast change default OS configuration due to this you are face trouble to connect with Internet. Even it can also edit important windows registry setting of your OS. Due to its harmful the malware always run behind the operating system after reboot. You may experience issues and unable to perform your basic work. Pup.optional.searchmanager.bitsrst is lethal OS infection which will not only spoil your windows application but also it may spy on your OS activities and send your collected browser information and your confidential information like password, bank info and online transactions reports to the remote hackers.
    I don't think Adware Cleaner will get rid of the 'hijacker' f14tomcat

    I would do this:

    disable Google Sync temporarily.
    Do a cleanup
    Reenable Google Sync and recheck
    If it is still happening then back up your Google Chrome's profile -> c:\users\<username>\AppData\Local\Google and delete everything from inside DEFAULT folder, except for maybe bookmarks and visited links...
    Recheck again.
