Windows 7: have I been hacked on Chrome browser?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
have I been hacked on Chrome browser?

It was running so slow...... barely functioning.
I am on IE11 to post this.
I did not go anywhere unusual.
I am on my homenetwork.
The PC was running so slow, it felt like malware and thought about reinstall.
Ran malwarebytes and came back with 0

Chrome is giving me a weird looking page I have never seen before.
And is unusable, firefox also slow....

What do I do?

Hi there. i suggest you run these

Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode and save to your Desktop.
  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
    Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • AdwCleaner will patient as the scan may take some time to complete.
  • After the scan has finished, click on the Report button...a logfile (AdwCleaner[R#].txt) will open in Notepad for review (where the largest value of # represents the most recent report).
  • The contents of the log file may be confusing. Unless you see a program name that you know should not be removed, don't worry about it. If you see an entry you want to keep, let me know about it.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that logfile in your next reply.
  • A copy of all logfiles are saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder which was created when running the tool.
Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
  • Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
  • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
  • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.
As from your latest screenshot, the date and time at the bottom right are wrong, i dont know if the screenshot was before or after the time was changed so thats why im asking lol.

Do not use Combofix on your own!!

Please give this a thorough read mate..highly useful but very dangerous in un-trained hands.

Il have someone take a look at the log, its nearly 3am bed time!
Il pop back tomorrow and see how thing are going.

so far so good. PC runs fine.
I saw no options for combofix, it simply does its thing and exits.
whatever was slowing it way down, is gone. It was crawling, especially firefox and chrome.
PC feels light, pages come up quick both internal and web. Before it was click something walk away a few minutes, maybe it shows up, maybe not.
I ran jrt and it says it finds a bad module. Follow the procedure, reboot log shows nothing.
Run jrt again and it says found a bad module, apparently it does this all the time for me without actually showing anything in the logs.

I found the quarantined files in a folder
Here they are.
Combofix added a vir extension to them.
These are the same files as shown in the 'other deletions' combofix log report.

I was going to reinstall windows, so I am glad combofix fixed it.
I run avast, is there anything else I could run?
What would prevent this infection?
I probably downloaded some innocent looking program is what caused this.

This is a slower 2.8 ghz pentium prescott computer, so the malware was able to slow it down enough to notice. I bet more powerful PC, people may not notice infections.

PC is back to being slow..... again, very slow.
It was great while it lasted.
It has been rebooted several times and now it is terrible slow.
We hardly used the net. Youtube, hotmail, gmail, fox news, google searches, read various things on various web pages. Went to vimeo to watch some 1080p test videos.
So I am running combofix again to see if the same files get quarantined.
And I will run the Adwarecleaner.

This is getting to be a pain.

I watched as combofix deleted a large amount of files.
When it is done, I will post the new log.

Could the chrome browser be reinfecting?
I have it synced to 2 other machines.
One runs ubuntu, another runs win7
And I use google remote desktop to look into this PC.

I was watching chrome browser as it was trying to connect to sites.
It was always waiting for 'long strings of number and letters'
And when it is not working sites dont load, or they take a very long time.
Right now using Firefox. And it feels fast again.
These odd files combofix keeps deleteing are in the local apps temp folder.
