I recently tried to download books and I have a ZIP.file that could contain the stuff. Is there a way someone could safely have a look at it and what it is?

Marie,

As long as you downloaded from a trusted source the contents of the ZIP should be okay.  You can attach the ZIP file to your reply, as long as it isn't too large, and I will take a look at it.

Still having problems with Chromesearch.club?

Happy New Year, 

And yes, I still have the issue, modifying Chrome, Youtube, gmail asked me to reset my password, as well as Skype, I am freaking out. 

The zip file was supposed to be a book, epub. I am not even sure it comes from this ZIP, to be honest, but it is the only thing in my download file that is suspicious and it fits, time-wise. 

Please find the file attached, I hope it will help. Looking forward to you reply.

Marie

Marie,

Both files in the ZIP archive you attached to your previous post are OK.

I am going to have you run a program that targets Adware and Junkware.

Download AdwCleaner and save it on your desktop.

  1. Close all open programs and Internet browsers (you may want to print our or write down these instructions first).
  2. Double click on adwcleaner.exe to run the tool.
  3. Click on the Scan button.
  4. After the scan has finished, click on the Clean button.
  5. Confirm each time with OK.
  6. You will be prompted to restart your computer. A text file will open in Notepad after the restart (this is the log of what was removed), which you can save on your desktop.
  7. Attach that log file to your reply by clicking the More Reply Options button to the lower-right of where you type in your reply.
    NOTE: If you lose that log file for any reason, you can find it at C:\AdwCleaner on your computer.

Hello,

No, Adwcleaner doesn't detect anything, system is clean and there is no restart required. It's still there though : Below is what I see in Settings section : 

The 3 dots should allow me to edit or remove the search bar, but you can't click on it. And you can't set the other search tools as default browsers either.

A reset didn't work either.

Here is the "chrome" home page, with links of websites that I don't use, and in English though I am French and in France. Then, the browser takes me to a yahoo.fr browser, populated with ads everywhere which are usually blocked by Adblock.

Thanks for trying. Any other idea? 

Have I been the only one with this?
