    System Restore (SR) is disabled by default on Windows 10. The Operating System does have Reset/Refresh this PC features which reinstall Windows 10, keeping files and most programs installed. However, IMO, System Restore is a useful tool when it comes to recovering from certain circumstances, and it appears you have the space for it.

    Please take action to enable SR before running the FRST fixlist that follows.

    To enable SR:
    On the Desktop, in the Search here area of the TaskBar, type: System Restore
    Press: Enter

    When Create a Restore Point is displayed, click on it.
    In System Properties > System Protection tab > Protection Settings, Protection is Off for Windows (C:) (System)
    To change this, click: Configure
    Tick: Turn on system protection

    Below, drag the slider to a reasonable amount of space.
    The larger, the more Restore Points, and the further back in time it can go.
    (Example, for a drive larger than 250GB, would recommend at least 10GB of space.)

    Click: Apply
    Click: Create
    Give the new Restore Point a name.
    Wait for Windows to create the RP, and click: OK

    Next, please do the following:
    Press the Windows and R keys at the same time.
    This opens the Run box.
    Type Notepad and click OK.
    Next, please copy the entire contents inside the code box below to Notepad:

    GroupPolicy: Restriction <======= ATTENTION
    S3 dbx; system32\DRIVERS\dbx.sys [X]
    U0 Partizan; system32\drivers\Partizan.sys [X]
    S3 PCASp60; System32\Drivers\PCASp60.sys [X]
    CustomCLSID: HKU\S-1-5-21-837606628-3980760942-254267324-1001_Classes\CLSID\{F8071786-1FD0-4A66-81A1-3CBE29274458}\InprocServer32 -> C:\Users\andre\AppData\Local\Microsoft\OneDrive\17.3.6517.0809_1\amd64\FileSyncApi64.dll => No File
    cmd: ipconfig /flushdns
    Save the file as fixlist.txt in the same folder where the FRST is running from. It appears to be running from E:\Downloads, vs. the Desktop. They both need to be in the same place, preferably the Desktop.

    Next, run FRST and click Fix only once, and wait.

    When done, the tool creates a log: Fixlog.txt
    Please attach Fixlog.txt to your reply.

    How is the system running?
    Is the suspicious website still showing up?

    After appears on the system, the default DNS settings of browsers such Chrome and are altered.
    Included the command ipconfig /flushdns considering this issue.

    Also, open Chrome, click on the 3 horizontal dots and click Select More Tools > Extensions
    If you see any malicious extensions please delete them.

    Next, go to Settings.
    Select Open a specific page or set of pages and click on: Set pages

    If you find any malicious websites, delete them by clicking the X next to them.

    I have 52.8 GB of space on my drive and I install games on there so they load faster. I can't say I have space for system restore.
    I've already checked Chrome's settings and extensions, there's nothing there.

    Did you run the Fixlist on FRST?

    Can you attach the Fixlog.txt ?

    Please download HitmanPro (Sophos):
    HitmanPro Malware Removal Tool: Secondary Anti-Virus Scanner | Download HitmanPro 3.7
    Save to the Desktop
    Right-click the downloaded file and select: Run as Administrator

    When it finishes running HP will display a list of Identified Threats (malware) or other entries found (i.e. cookies, PUPs, etc.).
    Click on Next and select the option: Activate Free License

    This begins the free 30 days trial, and removes all the Identified files from the computer.

    After the entries are removed, click on the Save Log option.
    Save the HitmanPro log to the Desktop.

    Please attach the content of the HitmanPro report in your reply.

    Now, close the program, and restart the computer.

    Any changes?

    This is getting tiresome. How many scans must I run?

    As many as you like, or none, if you wish.

    It is in your computer where rules, and, talking about tiresome, it can be a pain to get rid of.

    We are just trying to help.

    I'm pretty sure I removed it at some point. I haven't had it pop up in a few weeks.
