Windows 7: Google Chrome = Virus?

Google Chrome = Virus?

Today I installed the latest version of Chrome and within 10 minutes of going surfing with it. Kaspersky tells me I have a Trojan!

rotator.adjuggler

GRRR....

There goes my track record of NO Viruses

It depends on what sites you visited using Chrome. Also let us know, from where you d/l Chrome application. Is it from Google or any other source or mirror sites.

It was from the latest dev thread on here.

I don't recall the website but it was a website I normally visit. I only usually go on 10 websites and none of them gave me an issue with FF.

This is what I can say,
Rotator.Adjuggler is a malicious tracking cookie that installs on your computer when you visit certain websites. These are mostly advertisement websites or malicious sites (e.g., Keygen and Warez sites). It secretly installs using pop-up advertisements on these sites and makes its way to your system folders. It may also secretly install through files downloaded and installed from the Internet. Once it has been installed, it launches automatically at computer and browser startup.

So, it is a cookie installed by the website you have visited.

As a precaution, you can deny installing any 3rd party cookie in Chrome.

Go to options, under the hood tab, content settings and check mark block all thrid party cookies without any exceptions. This way, chrome will deny any 3p cookie installing. Once done, click close and clear all browsing data.

Run a full virus scan and keep your computer safe.

Could always have been coincidental. I've used Google Chrome since its first public release.

I suggest just getting rid of it with Kaspersky and be weary of that site you got it from when visiting.
