Hello everyone,

Recently I started having the command window popping up for just a moment on startup, then Google Chrome launches with gmaegames.pro ads popping up. I have googled it, tried to remove any suspicious scheduled tasks, ran 3 different suggested malware removal programs, reset Chrome, and still nothing. Very new to all this, so thanks for patience and support.

Kind regards
