Windows 7: Hit by Happili Malware on Google Chrome

Hit by Happili Malware on Google Chrome

Just got infected with the Happili malware while using Google Chrome. Seems to be the only browser affected by it, as Firefox and IE don't seem to trigger the redirect.

Running MSE and MBAM at the time, neither could get to it. I looked up the info on this nasty SOB along with all the other recent threads here about removing it, and considered just using Combofix, but thought I should get pro help before doing anything drastic.

Tried uninstalling and reinstalling Chrome. Seems to have worked. Going to run MSE, MBAM, and Spybot in safe mode just to be sure, will update if problem pops up again.
