Hi there,

through tiredness fueled stupidity, I accidentally installed an infected Extension when searching for a special piece of software. Thus, chromesearch.today hijacked my browser and searching as well as any attempts to fix it myself didn't yield any kind of proper result, so I really need some proper help.

So far, uninstalling Chrome, resetting Chromeand running adwCleaner or Malwarebytes did nothing after the initially found extension, though there seems to be some residue, that installs chromesearch.today as a locked search engine for Chrome upon reinstalling.

Attached you will find the FRST Report!

No business computer. Just my private gaming desktop at home. Other than that just a VPN Client and CAD/CAM software for university (I study mechanical engineering).

The extension (Bitmotion New Tab Extension) itself is gone, and I don't get the Bitmotion New Tab Page anymore, but within googles settings the search engine is still locked in as chromesearch.today and can't be changed. The New Tab Page still differs from the original google one, too (lacking the google logo).
