    Hi,

    Have they only just put that option there as last time Ccleaner updated it installed both chrome and avast and I had to go into programs to remove both as avast shut down windows defender
    As far as I know, yes. I only had CCleaner install Chrome once because I wasn't paying attention during the install process.

    Cheers,

    Well it would be much easier to stay exactly on subject if xpac would respond to our post.

    What was the results of my post #15? Were my suggestion completed or ignored?
    Was any suggestions by any poster done or ignored?
    If anything was done, what was the results?

    Response to our posts by the OP would tend to keep us on the straight and narrow.
    We need help from the OP in order to give proper help to the OP.
    If any of my post in this thread has mislead anybody, please point them out and I will remove said post.
    I will just wait until the OP responds.

    OK I think we need to get back to the specific point of this thread now and try to help xpac5896 to get rid of these Softronic Ads

    The discussion of more general issues has been useful to show what the state of advertising practice now is on the Net, but we do not want to forget the original poster
    Softronic-One of the sites that I would never download anything from.

    Jack, you and others have not done anything wrong here, and I include myself in that statement, We have just done what we do when a thread is slow - we go off topic The recent issues with Avast/Piriform/Google have been discussed in depth elsewhere on the forums, and it's important to do this

    They are useful here too as the may be relevant, or suggest a reason for, the issue, so should all remain in place

    I really do need to apologize for not paying attention to this thread. I haven't been feeling all that good lately and haven't even come near my computer.
    I did find the culprit of all those ads and it was GOOGLE CHROME. I never had any idea or even thought about it until I clicked on one of the ads. They're gone now after fixing this darned thing. Never had any problems with Chrome up until those pesky ads started popping up. I may be wrong but it could get worse. By that I mean Google may decide to take away the ability to block the ads seeing as how the IP's are going to control the net. They'll want to maximize all they can to make the almighty dollar and all they'll have to do is pay Google a monthly fee and next thing you know you got stuff popping up all over the place. Now you may say this is a little far fetched but trust me the bottom line means more than anything else. But as for now the ads are history and hopefully they'll stay that way. Thanks all for your help and I hope you all have a Happy New Year! Yea, right.

    Absolute nonsense, you may of thought that but it's something else that you have installed.

    XPAC, I don't know what security scans you have run.

    After having Google Chrome installed I suggest running this looking for a Google bundled package.

    The bundle will look something like this.

    Win32/Bundled.Toolbar.Google.D potentially unsafe application
