Hello everyone,

I'm not too literate on computers but I have a "Microsoft - Your computer is blocked" malware on my HP chromebook. I tried to follow instructions but the chromebook is different.

1. Which Guide did you follow?

2. Review all installed extensions and remove any that may be the cause. Send a screenshot or list, if unsure.

3. Try Chrome cleanup at chrome://settings/cleanup

4. Try scanning your Chromebook with Malwarebytes, requires Play Store support.

Final (after infection is removed).
For future protection use Malwarebytes Browser Guard. Browser Guard - Blocks ads, scams, and trackers
