I usually use Win Defender and AdBlock as security softwares, and Ccleaner and Wise registry cleaner for general maintenance.

Thank you for your time and effort.

Hi! as i wrote above, i tried both cleaning repeteadly the cache, and yes it happens only with Chrome, but resets and uninstals didnt get me any good.

I forgot to mention i also checked HijackThis to no avail either.

Can you check your extensions in chrome?

Type chrome://extensions in address bar.

Sure: AdBlock, Adobe reader and Video Downloader All. I downloaded them all some time ago on purpose from the proper channel.

I wish to make clear that as soon as a page whatsoever downloads, an overlay is loaded on top of it where any click no matter the place starts the redirects popups and popunders. I checked it via Chrome's own developer tools.

Fix with Farbar Recovery Scan Tool

This fix was created for this user for use on that particular machine.

Running it on another one may cause damage and render the system unstable.

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
    icon and select
    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.
