Preferred Solution: Crome.exe malware

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I have win7 64 Bit and I did have Google Crome for my Browser.
I got rid of Crome and got FireFox and all works good.
But every time I go on the Web I have a Big Ad in the top let side of the Browser that asks me to get Google Crome and it has OK tab and Tell Me Latter Tab.
So I click the   X  to close it.
But if I go offline and then come back it is up there again.
And every time I go offline and back to my Desktop I see a Google Crom Shortcut.
So I scan with MailWare Bytes  and Win ESANT.  and both came up clean.
Can anyone help I hope this has happened to somebody?

I have a 2 year old Dell Inspiron One 2305, Touch Screen Desk top Computer. I have been using Google Chrome, Now I can no longer gain access 2 any actions, using the G.C. browser. It pull up a light blue or pale purple folder, with the address bar, site included, yet has no further actions. If i use a I.E. browser, it functions well. This started about 10 days ago. Any ideas or help, would be appreciated.

A:Google Crome won't open files

Chrome is not a file browser - which is what you appear to be using it for.
You should use Windows Explorer ('Computer' NOT Internet Explorer) for browsing files on your own computer.

Good evening.

Double click the tool to run it.
Click the Quick Scan button and allow it to do it's thing.
Once complete, it should open two Notepad Windows - OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt
It should also save copies in the same location as OTL.
I want you to copy and paste the contents of OTL.txt that should appear into one reply and Extras.Txt into another.
The length of the two logs sometimes results in the end being chopped off if you post both in one reply.

Google Crome Version 49.0.2623.110 m
Windows 7 64-bit Professional SP1

I am getting this error for any website I open in Crome:

This site can?t be reached
google.com took too long to respond.

- this has started happening recently ( was working fine before)
- do not have any problem in using other browsers like Firefox or IE.
- tried to reinstall Google Crome but error persists
- tried clearing browse data
- tried flushing dns
- tried turning off both computer Firewall and Antivirus security temp

So I am running out of ideas here as why only Crome is behaving like this and Firefox/IE are ok?

Appreciate some help here to fix the issue.
I am happy to prove any traces etc if you need (please let me know the exact steps)


A:Crome throws ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT but all other browsers are ok.

Which firewall or other security programs are you using? Check your computer's proxy settings; Chrome uses those.

I have been having a massive headache for the past few weeks, something very small is having a big impact!
As part of my work I need to subscribed to and receive notifications through my browser Crome. Recently the notification stopped coming through. When I have gone to subscribe to the notification via the website, the page just freezes, then disappears having not subscribed me. During this "freeze" their is some information which I can access, I have taken some screen shots so you can see.


It appears it is saying that the content is not secure, is blocking mixed content? Is there a way I can change my settings to allow these notifications? These notifications are soooooooooooooo important to me!

I'm running a laptop with Win 8 & Google Crome and like the software to save my passwords which it is doing except for Gmail. It will not save them. Matter of fact the option box does not even pop up for me to try and save them. It will work for all other sites so is there a setting somewhere that I need to change to allow ALL passwords to be saved. If there is I can't find it and it's driving me nuts because I have to check my accounts numerous times each day. " Offer to save passwords I enter on the web " is selected in the Crome settings.

A:Opens 6 windows when click on internet (google crome)

Do you mean tabs or windows?
If tabs...
Close all but the tab with the URL you want to open as your start window.
In the upper right, (below the [x] to close Chrome),
you will see an icon that is three horizontal bars.
Click this. (Left click!)
Go down to "settings" (near the bottom of the list), Left Click.
It will open a new tab.
In the second section (On Startup) you will see three options.
The third is "Open a specific page or set of pages".
Left click the link to "set pages"
Left click the button that says "use current pages"
and your current "list" will clear and become only the tab you have open.

A:Bottle Neck When running Google Crome With Core i3 2nd Gen

I have a computer that has 2 GB of RAM at 1066 MHz which is 1 yr. old, when I use google chrome, firefox and CS5 at the same time it only uses 61-65% memory, its weird that you only have one page open on chrome and it uses 200 MB memory, Are your browsers up to date? If not update it. I think it has something to do with your RAM, probably you have a memory leak from what I know. What are the extension and add-ons in your chrome that is using that much RAM? I have 32-bit W7 when its idle it uses 20% memory.

That means nVidia display driver, whereas it is updated only a few hours ago, right?
I would suggest you to shift to an older driver which works perfectly.

Spouse showed me her Dell running Win 8.1, said that Chrome was closing itself.
Tried to find security program for scan, learned that it is Windows Defender (I use Win 7 on mine, running MSE).

But in the task list, I found a process called "crome.exe" running at 76% CPU!!!!! (yes, the spelling on that process is correct)

Had to use End Task twice to shut it down.

This all looks fishy to me, which is why I post here. Google search for "crome process" gets no meaningful results

Started running Defender full scan now & not complete.

Told spouse to use IE rather than Chrome for now, and it is shutting itself down just the same.

Appreciate information about what it going on.

YouTube? Picture in Picture (Beta)

Users of this extension have also used
Watch YouTube? videos in the corner while browsing the site, just like in the mobile apps.
* Videos will continue to play in a picture-in-picture window when you navigate away from the page
* Re-open video page at any time without interruption
* Start videos in a picture-in-picture window with the right click menu

This extension is a proof-of-concept and is still in beta, with a few known bugs. Playlists don't work correctly, and sometimes videos don't load right. If something goes wrong, opening a new video usually fixes things. If not, try opening a new tab.

If a program installed malware and the anti malware found something.
Will it delete the malware itself or will it delete the program that came with the malware too?


A:Will an anti malware uninstall the program that installed the malware or only the malware itself?

I find your question a bit confusing, maybe it's just me.
But I think I understand your way of asking your question, and I will try to answer:

If for example Internet_Browser_A unintentionally installs stealthy malware by a driveby advertisement / exploit,
then Anti_Malware_B will only detect and remove unwanted malware and leave Internet_Browser_A intact and alone.
But if Internet_Browser_A in the same turn also gets infected, then Anti_Malware_B will try to disinfect or quarantine
Internet_Browser_A aswell.

Does that answer your question and did I understand it correctly?

Welcome! 1Up.

[topic=253487.html"]Malware byte's Anti Malware software, Malware byte's Anti Malware Not working[/topic]My google requests are being redirected to other sites. As a first step to correcting this, I started to run Malware byte's Anti Malware software. After I updated it, I started the scan when all of a sudden it stopped working. When I tried to reconnect, I got a message"Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file.

Hi, I recently got suckered into receiving and falling for the 'fake facebook friend request' malware email (hxxttp://www.net-security.org/malware_news.php?id=1813) and am not sure if I have been infected or not. In the email, I clicked on the link and it brought me to facebook but nothing seemed amiss - however I realized immediately after that it was probably some sort of virus and that, wow, I really am guillible to fall for something like that. In researching about the malware I noticed that a prompt was expected to come up and ask me to download the latest version of Macromedia Flash - but it didn't. So I am uncertain if I've contracted something. Anyway, I haven't noticed any major issues with my computer but I will admit that I'm a little green when it comes to these things so I'm unsure of what to look for - if it's something dangerous running in the backround, how would I know, etc.? So I followed the instructions on here and have a few logs. Problem is I don't really understand the language, so to say. What's good or bad. Really I am wondering if someone can take a peek at the logs and tell me if I have a real issue and if it's something I need to address. I'm wary of using this computer in case it's something serious.

Oh, and my computer is running Windows Vista.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

Dear helper,

Am I infected ?? What should I do ?

Window XP, Internet Explorer 6, Sony VGN-SZ18GP laptop bought in 2006.

System crash last night, with rapid lost of hard-disc drive space (from 15 GB down to 100 Mb within 2 hours). Norton security (2006 version) & Internet explorer were busted afterward, was not able to run at all. The build-in system recovery programme was also affected.

Was forced to use back-up system recovery CD to restore the laptop back in its origin shipping state.

However afterward it is still not right. Installed McAfee (from my internet service provider) but the update function is not working - repeatly state that it can now update because I am not connect to the internet, when I'm actually conneted to your website typing this email right this moment. Also internet access to microsoft and all other common antivirus website (Norton, McAfee, AVG, Kaspersky, Avast, etc) are all block. Hence I can't even attempt to find out what happen to my laptop.

What virus have I been infected ? What programme should I use to remove the malware now that I cannot access to any of the antivirus website or microsoft website ?

Thank you

Hi all,My dad has asked me to take a look at his computer after it's been acting odd, and it looks like he's got a doozy of something running on the system. He's been getting some pop ups advertising various programs, the desktop is changed to text reading "Your system is infected! System has been stopped due to a serious malfunction. Spyware activity has been detected" (which is not something any program that should be running would display", Task Manager is blocked from opening and a fake piece of anti-spyware has taken up residence (don't have the name off hand).Looking at the log, I found a couple of things that I'm not a fan of - batmeter16.dll, for starters. There's a couple others I don't recognize, but I am not sure if they are bad or not.Unfortunately, my attempts to fix it have been thwarted - an AVG scan said it cleared it up, but more pop ups came. I tried to run Malware Bytes, but when I download the latest update through the program, I get a nice warning message saying "The database you are using is not supported by this version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. Download the latest version of the program."Additionally, this came about because I tried to start into Safe Mode to get this cleaned up. I couldn't get my keyboard to register keystrokes before Windows started, which kept me from accessing the dialogue allowing Safe Mode to be entered, so I modified boot.ini to force a safe mode boot. Unfortunately, this brought about a blue sc... Read more

-- There are three new icons on my desktop: (1) Error Cleaner (2) Privacy Protector (3) Spyware&Malware Protection. When mousing over these icons, the popup window indicates that they lead to "http://viruswebprotect.com/shandler/php?..."

-- I periodically get pop up icons that say "someone is trying to attack my computer" and there was a message that stated "Win32.netsky worm has infected my computer"

I have completed the five steps listed in the "before you post" thread. The only deviation from that is that I already have Windows XP SP2 installed. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Hello all! I'm posting here because I'm trying to take care of my brother's laptop. On Friday (Christmas Eve) he let me know that he'd gotten what appeared to be a malware and or virus attack which appeared initially as a fake anti virus scan ("AntiVirusDoctor") -generating numerous pop-ups and so forth. This was an older Dell (running Windows XP) of his that he'd had to switch to as his newer one is out of service for the moment-so the usual security software he uses and such had either not been reinstalled or not updated for a very long time with the exception of AviraAntivirus (it had just updated itself an hour or so before hand). Avira's gaurd seemed to have caught about 20-30 files trying to come in -almost all of these were tojan's. He'd started it's scan and had found 3 or 4 infections but I suggested he stop the scan and reboot into safe mode so he could run it from there. Meanwhile I went back to my computer and downloaded the newest version of Malwarebytes and after running his Avira again in safe mode ran a full-system scan on his computer in Malwarebytes. This found around 250 or so more infections. I saved the log files from the two malwarebytes scans I ran (I'd forgotten to ensure that all the files had been selected for removal the first time round & when I saw this immediately rescanned and then removed them).

I have to restart the computer each time (takes ten minutes but works). Slow start up and shut downs. Out of 56 Processes I can only see 9 in task manager. And I also see (my web search) like more then 50 times in my start up (Viewing that with Advanced System Care Pro)

This is my system information then AVG report and finaly HJT log Info in order that I just mentioned.

Have been using Win 7 Ultimate x64 for quite a while but tonight ran into a small problem. I like to keep the titles for links very short and want to rename "Malwarebytes Anti-Malware" (I am a registered, paid user) to simply "Malwarebytes". I am listed as an Administrator and I used LockHunter to unlock the file but it still does not allow me to shorten the description. When I shorten the name and hit OK I am told "You'll need to provide administrator permission to rename this file" Since I am the administrator on this machine I do not know what to do. Continuing does nothing. Anyone have any suggestions? /* Philip */

Yesterday, I had troubles with Windows live messenger where it (still) says:

"Windows Live Communications Platform has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. "

although, the problem isnt about MSN. I found out that this problem was caused by having Malware on your computer. Hence, i decided to run a scan using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM).

I noticed that my Avast was disabled and if i try enable it, it comes up with a window saying: the operation could not be completed.

My google searches also SOMETIMES get redirected to links that is clearly out of topic.
like if i google search the terms "malware wikipedia" and i click on the wikipedia link but i get redirected to some Myspace/Anz credit card crap.

Then this happened.
MBAM CRASHED after 2 mins of scanning -> tried to re-run MBAM but a window came up saying:
"Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."
I ran several other programs such as:
HJT -> scanned for 2 mins, then crashed (no logs were made)
SUPERAntiSpyware (SAS) -> scanned for 2 mins, then crashed
and same goes for any other programs that searched for any malware.
The only program that worked was TROJANHUNTER and came up with a couple of false positives
I also tried using Avira's Rescue CD (the one where you boot up with it and it does a scan)
A scan using Avira was also successful but failed to... Read more
