    How to remove Chrome malware warnings

    I am constantly getting malware warning on my chrome web browser. But my antivirus here shows nothing. It is really weird. It was working fine, I had added certain set of addons on it. They add theming effect on the web browser. It was working fine, but there is a virus issue. Whichever page I open gives me a security threat message. How to get rid of the same. Thanks.

    Remove the browser and install it back again. That is one of the best thing you can do. When you remove it any addon which is associated with the threat will also be removed. You can then install it back again.

    If you are getting that malware warning then surely that site is affected. Try visiting some other popular website like YouTube or msn. See that you are getting any warning on that or not. If yes then your browser is infected. Recently there was a malware in news that simply hijack your facebook details. And it is very complicated to remove. It works usually on chrome web browser. The best thing you can do here is download and install Malwarebytes in your system. It is a nice antimalware tool which you can use for scanning your system. To use it you do not require to uninstall your existing antivirus also. This is one of the best anti-malware tool available on the internet. I am using this from long time. I was getting the same kind of malware issue on my Firefox browser. I disabled all the add-on but still the warning was intact. After installing malwarebytes things went back to normal. There is no issue rightnow. Browser hijacking is one of the most common thing. There are many third party addons which are manifested with threats and cause problem at the time of surfing. Try to remove the browser and then run the scan. That is more better because while uninstalling the malware gets disabled.

    For avoid those kind of problems you can simply keep a good internet security tool in your system. Internet security pack comes with everything. It has a anti-malware, firewall, etc. So there is no need to mess about adding different stuff.

    In chrome you can find out the list of modules which are working. You just have to type chrome://conflicts in the address bar. It will give you a list of all modules which are loaded and then you can turn them off when not required. Most of the infections usually occur through modules only. You will require to disable them or simply remove them to improve your sites performance. The list which you can see after typing chrome://conflicts also gives you the location of dll file. You can directly delete that to make your browser stable. Now if that does not work then the next option left is to run a good antimalware program. You can scan your system with that and avoid threats. Prevx is a good antimalware tool. You can download it and scan your system with that. It is always recommended that you must keep your antivirus updated so that there must be no problem with scanning stuff.
