Clean Chrome Malware

Chrome is often a vector for malware, if you are facing a stubborn infection do the following.

  1. Uninstall Chrome
  2. Rename the chrome directory in %LocalAppData%\Google\ to chrome.bak
  3. Install Chrome, do not log into chrome
  4. See if issue persists.

Once you sign in, the issue may come back. This points to a synced extension being the issue.
