Hi, my search engine on google chrome keeps changing to an unfamiliar engine called Bar1 New Tab. I've done everything from deleting the extension to resetting settings and deleting and reinstalling google chrome but this unfamiliar search engine keeps reappearing from time to time and each time it appears all my tabs automatically close. What should I do?

Hi, i will try to help you. Do the following:

1. Turn off your Mac. Wait at least five minutes before continuing.
2. Turn on the Mac, immediately press Left Shift.
3. Wait until the Desktop loads.
4. Go to www.malwarebytes.com and download the proper installer file.
5. Install and run Malwarebytes for Mac.
