Hi Everyone, Ill cut to the chase, i accidently installed some dodgy extension clealry which is playing up with my browser. The extension is called "TachyglossusAculeatus" with its extension ID being ID: abpnbjncifcehnfcndlhljdemkagalfp. I followed one of the guides provided by this site to remove this malware and i thought i was making progress with it as things were getting flagged up which i deleted however it still didnt make a difference to my chromse browsers, Its still managed by this maleware which i dont have the option to delete in extensions or anywhere else.

My progress so far is that ive done everything according to the forum but now im on the Farbar Recovery tool part but i dont want to run someone elses fix list in case it messes up my computer, so if my files can be looked over and provided with a fix list ill start the fix with Fabar.

thank you,

Hello, Welcome to MalwareTips.
I'm nasdaq and will be helping you.

If you can please print this topic it will make it easier for you to follow the instructions and complete all of the necessary steps in the order listed.

Please download the attached Fixlist.txt file to the same folder where the Farbar tool is running from.
The location is listed in the 3rd line of the FRST.txt log you have submitted.

Run FRST and click Fix only once and wait.

The Computer will restart when the fix is completed.

It will create a log (Fixlog.txt) please post it to your reply.

Please post the Fixlog.txt and let me know what problem persists.
