Windows 7: [Moved] Google Chrome advertisement malware

[Moved] Google Chrome advertisement malware

Hello

I am pretty sure either my PC or my google chrome have been put to pop up a new window from a website called contentlikes1.com . They display various messages to "install" plugins for various like generations and similar which i have never used or want to use. The window opens by itself and other than that i haven't seen any other changes.

Any information i can check out on how to fix this ? googling it did nothing.

so far so good. I will monitor the situation but i am pretty sure this probably fixed the issue
Any idea where it could have come from? i rarely use the pc for anything than gaming ( facebook and steam are like the only things being opened ) . Should i be worried?



EDIT: it didnt work. i get some Flight search app .com ... AND Film fanatic.

The chrome tool didn't find any programs

Well in that case try:

https://www.carifred.com/ultra_adware_killer/

You need to actually whitelist some items when running this utility. Run a scan and inspect results. Add entries that you need to keep to the whitelist via right click menu.

To manage whitelist click Menu > Whitelist Manager
[Moved] Google Chrome advertisement malware-ultra-adware-killer-2.jpg
Run a scan and if you are not sure what to whitelist open the logs folder where you should find reports. Upload the results.
