So I have tried all steps laid out on this page for remvoing a Powelik Chrome based Virus. Currently any time I open a Chrome Tab it shows on Task Manager that I hav 8-16 tabs open and my CPU is bottleneck. Never had any issues with my 2700x until I noticed my task manager last night. I have restored chrome, deleted extensions, ran malwarebytes 6+ times. I was able to quarentine items and delete them twice but it is still occuring. I have used Emisoft, ESET, HITMAN, and MB to no avail. Cannot use my DAW programs with my CPU being used by chrome so much. Any further suggestions? ESET said I was totaly clean?
