    Operating System:
    Windows 10
    Are you using a 32-bit or 64-bit operating system?:
    I don't know!
    Infection date and initial symptoms:
    Around January 2017
    Current issues and symptoms:
    Chromium popping up during start up
    Steps taken in order to remove the infection:
    uninstall program, delete chromium.exe
    To Whom It May Concern,

    My name is Anthony and I started having chromium pop up during start up. It did not really bother me as I just delete the browser. However recently when I have been playing video games I noticed a spike in lag and I thought this could be the culprit.

    I recently downloaded AVG free and Malwarebytes to do scans and they have not caught this malware.

    Please Help and thank you for reading,

    Anthony

    Hello,


    [​IMG] Fix with Farbar Recovery Scan Tool

    [​IMG] This fix was created for this user for use on that particular machine. [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Running it on another one may cause damage and render the system unstable. [​IMG]

    Download attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop:

    Both files, FRST and fixlist.txt have to be in the same location or the fix will not work!

    • Right-click on [​IMG] icon and select [​IMG] Run as Administrator to start the tool.
      (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File).
    • Press the Fix button just once and wait.
    • If for some reason the tool needs a restart, please make sure you let the system restart normally. After that let the tool complete its run.
    • When finishes FRST will generate a log on the Desktop, called Fixlog.txt.

    Please attach it to your reply.


    Any change after the fix?

    Can you reinstall Google Chrome without logging into your Google Account?
