So I was on youtube and clicked on an add for a game like an idiot and ended up with malware that has affected my google chrome. It always redirects me to another browser like bing or yahoo whenever I look something up and I can't get rid of it. The thing I downloaded in question was something called gamecenter, which I have already deleted multiple times. How do I fix this?
