    Suspicious website popping up in new tab when Chrome starts

    Recently, I've been getting an odd page opening up when I start up Chrome after rebooting or being on standby.

    I searched into it and all I could find was pages about UnHackMe, which I ran and it found nothing.

    What IS this thing, and how do I get rid of it?

    Out of curiosity I opened the link on my osMac MacBook Pro in Firefox and got a screen plus a recording saying my Mac is infected. It closed easily. I'd check Chrome's setting for the Home page to assure only the one wanted is all that's shown.

    For me, it just shows a blank page. No audio. I'm guessing Adguard is keeping it from loading. Wonder why it's even allowing the tab to open in the first place?

    I would think ESET would keep it from loading at all, or at least show that red "blocked link" page.

    Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware:
    Malwarebytes | Malwarebytes 3.0 Premium 14-day Free Trial
    Right-click on the MBAM icon and select: Run as Administrator
    Click Yes to accept any security warnings that appear.

    At the MBAM console, on the right pane, under the Scan Status, click: Current (it updates the tool)
    On the left menu pane click the Settings tab, and then select the Protection tab on the top.
    Under Scan Options, turn on the button: Scan for rootkits

    Click the Scan tab on the right pane, select Threat Scan and click: Start Scan

    Note: The scan may take some time to finish, so please be patient.

    If potential threats are detected, ensure to check all the listed items, and click: Quarantine Selected

    While still on the Scan tab, click the View Report button
    In the window that opens click: Export
    Select: Text file (*.txt), and save the log to the Desktop.

    The log is also viewed by clicking on it, then clicking the View Report button.
    Please attach or post the log for review.
    Note: If asked to restart the computer, please do so.

    Also, please download AdwCleaner:

    Download to your Desktop.

    Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.

    Click the Scan button and wait for the process to complete.

    When the can finishes and presents its results, if you see any program that you wish to keep, remove the check from it. Otherwise, once the Clean button is pressed, all checked items listed on the report are removed.

    A log file is automatically opened after the scan finishes.
    It is found at C:\AdwCleanerCx.txt (x is a number).
    Please attach or post the content of the AdwCleaner report.

    Damn it, I had the logs pasted here but Adware Removal Tool shut down Chrome and I lost them. They didn't find anything.

    Let's give this a whirl...

    Please use the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool Download
    Save FRST to your Desktop.

    [Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system: 32 bit or 64 bit]

    Double-click FRST to run it.
    When the tool opens click Yes to the disclaimer.
    Next, press the Scan button.

    When done, the tool makes a log (FRST.txt) on the Desktop.

    The first time the tool is run, it makes another log: (Addition.txt).

    Please attach both reports to your reply.

    Here's the results.
    I'm going to see about purchasing MBAM in the future, seeing as how the trial runs out after 2 weeks.

    Before proceeding, any reason why System Restore is disabled?

    I don't know. It wasn't ever enabled in the first place.
