[SOLVED] Malware chrome search engine
Nov 30, 2015, 8:25 PM
As the title says, my chrome installation is infected with a strange malware search engine.
Its name is ">" and I'm totally unable to delete it or at least set google to be the default.
I've already tired:
- Using HitmanPro
- Using Malwarebytes
- Using Windows Defender
- Using Webroot Secure Anywhere (my primary anti-virus)
- Deleting chrome completly via Revo Uninstaller
- Restoring default settings.
The search engine comes back even after a full clean install of chrome.
I can not change/delete/deactivate because when I try chrome says that "This setting is enforced by your administrator."
If anyone knows a solution please tell me!
Thank you in advance!
