My default browser keeps changing off chrome the moment I search something up. I have tried scanning, removing other browsers, but nothing has worked. I can see the problem in my extensions, but I can't delete it for some reason. The extension is called "RhododendronFerrugineum" but as far as I can tell it's just a type of flower. Any ideas?

Hello ..! Welcome to MalwareTips..! :)

Please follow the instruction below..:

Download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop. --> IMPORTANT

If your antivirus software detects the tool as malicious, it’s safe to allow FRST to run. It is a false-positive detection.
If English is not your primary language, right click on FRST.exe/FRST64.exe and rename to FRSTEnglish.exe/FRST64English.exe

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
  • Double-click the FRST icon to run the tool. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button and wait for a while.
  • The scanner will produced two logs on your Desktop: FRST.txt and Addition.txt.
  • Please attach the content of these two logs in your next reply.
---------------------------------------------------

In your next reply, please include:
  • FRST.txt
  • Addition.txt

Very good..! We have to be a little aggressive. We'll run a fix in safe mode, so I'd like you to manually create a system restore point first. Then please do this:

Farbar Recovery Scan Tool Fix - Safe Mode
  • Download the attached file and save it to your Desktop
  • Boot into Safe Mode using the From the sign-in screen instructions
  • Right click on the FRST icon and select Run as administrator
  • Click Yes to disclaimer that may appear
  • Press the Fix button
  • Reboot your computer into Normal Boot
  • When completed the tool will create a log on the desktop called Fixlog.txt. Please copy and paste the contents of the file in your reply. If the file is too large attach the file to your reply
