Windows 10: Malware recovery

    Malware recovery


    I have a windows 10 pc that was infected by malware, a full scan by windows defender deleted the malware however I still have new tabs spawning in chrome on virtually any action taken in chrome. I have reinstalled chrome to no avail. Other browsers are unaffected. Any ideas on how to fix this. Any tutorials on how to manually detect malware. I am an advanced Linux user however I have virtually no windows experience since 98 but am comfortable with regedit and command prompt.

    Hi.
    I would download and run Malwarebytes Antimalware Free (update the virus definitions first). Then I would perform a reset on the browser.

    Do other sweeps with RogueKiller and AdwCleaner too. Just to be on the safe side.

    Hello Astutens:

    I would add that in addition to the fine advice above, download/execute:

    Malwarebytes Junkware Removal Tool (JRT)

    and remember to do a system restart after its completion.

    Thank you.

    I recommend SUPERAntiSpyware also.
