    i am aware that this is quite popular issue after i search on google. i tried to solve this using the methods i found in internet and so far, i can't find any solution that fix this, it's really annoying

    here are the solutions i've tried so far:
    1.reinstalling google chrome
    2.scan and clean it using MalwareBytes
    3.scan using my anti virus software and clean it
    4.delete all the browsing data and reset current settings
    5.use google clean up tool
    6.searching and uninstall software that is not familiar

    i've had this problem before, but i remove it by resetting my pc and it worked, so far it's the only solution i had now but i have some important files and i don't have any backup storage for now, i don't want to lose my files, any ideas how to fix this mess? thank you

    :)

    If these are not just random pop-ups on various websites (and the frequency and number suggests they are not) follow the instructions at

    p.s. Update your Avast, and maybe store your files in the cloud until you can buy an external hard drive.

  7. Those look like Norton Safe Search indicators. Slightly different shape. They are likely coming from Avast.

    Open chrome settings and scroll down to search. There is a option to manage search engines. You can open and review.

    If not there then check Avast settings for search.

    My thought is you could disable as test and then re-enable. The goal of safe search is just to weed out the known bad stuff that someone has managed to get high in search results.

    sorry but what i meant is that the website "iqoption.com" that i've shown in screenshot is always appear whenever search something in google, what i know before that this website never show up before i install the suspicious software, and sometimes it shows in different language also which is weird. sorry for getting you the wrong idea

  9. Not a problem, it is me rushing.

    Still look in settings, if any thing mysterious delete. I would also check host file.

    I would also flush DNS

    ipconfig /flushdns

    I know you reset chrome but did you audited installed extensions?

  11. Update: So for other people who had a same problem as i do, for me the only solution that worked so far is to reset your computer, either you wanted to keep your personal files or reset all of it, doesn't matter, it will clean everything. so i suggest before you install any software (especially the free one) you should always carefully read the installation and don't press next too fast because you might miss something important, here are the changes after i've reset my computer

    Pretty nasty if it could dig in so deep that those tools wouldn't pull it out.

  14. yeaa this is one of those terrible things that you really want to avoid, the problem is once its installed to your system it doesn't effect only chrome, it will effect any browser that is installed in the computer
