    Hi and welcome to the MalwareTips.com forums!

    • I will start working on your malware issues, this may or may not, solve other issues you have with your machine.
    • The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine!
    • The process is not instant. Please continue to review my answers until I tell you your machine is clear. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.
    • If you don't know, stop and ask! Don't keep going on.
    • Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
    • Refrain from running self fixes as this will hinder the malware removal process.
    • It may prove beneficial if you print of the following instructions or save them to notepad as I post them.
    Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Be assured, any links I give are safe.

    Can you run the OTL once again now?

    STEP 1: Run a scan with OTL by OldTimer
    <ol><li>Download the OTL utility using the below link :
    <><a title="External link" href="http://oldtimer.geekstogo.com/OTL.exe" rel="nofollow external">OTL DOWNLOAD LINK</a> <em>(This link will automatically download OTL on your computer)</em></></li>
    <li>Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.
    <img src="http://malwaretips.com/blogs/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/OTL-logo.png" alt="" title="OTL-logo" width="106" height="118" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-3946" /></li>
    <li>When the window appears, <>underneath Output</> at the top change it to <>Minimal Output</>.</li>
    <li>Check the boxes beside <>LOP Check</> and <>Purity Check</>.</li>
    <li>Click the<> Run Scan</> button.
    <img src="http://malwaretips.com/blogs/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/OTL.png" alt="" title="OTL" width="658" height="584" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-3945" /></li>
    <li>When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. <>OTL.Txt</> and <>Extras.Txt</>. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
    <>Please post this 2 logs in your first reply.</>.</li></ol>

    Settings You need to Select in OTL
    1. Click the [b]Scan All Users[/b] checkbox.
    2. Change [b]Standard Registry[/b] to [b]All[/b].
    3. Check the boxes beside [b]LOP Check[/b] and [b]Purity Check.[/b]

    As far as I know. I've never used Internet Explorer on this machine, so I have no idea if fbdownloader is on there as well or not.

    Okay. So it's only in Google Chrome right?

    If it is only in Google Chrome change the home page in Google Chrome and set it to Google.com then restart the computer and check how it is working..... :)

    Go to Google Chrome Settings. Copy and paste the following code in the address bar of Google Chrome.

    Code:
    chrome://chrome/settings/
    It will open Google Chrome Settings page.... Over there check what is your home age in Google Chrome.....

    Settings -- > On Start Up --> Set pages (Click on it)

    [​IMG]

    You can see one another home page over there.. Delete it..... Click on the X to Delete it.
