So we experienced this ourselves!

So last month a series of attacks from malware creators have panicked many users of Google Chrome web browser. The malware does just one thing, it lets you add an extension that makes it self appear like it is from Google.

But since you can actually opt not to install it, the malware creators devised  a plan to make it automatically install as an extension to Chrome.

Now, these same group of hackers have developed a trojan horse.

A trojan horse is a kind of virus whose aim is to corrupt your PC's files. Unlike malwares that only displays annoying ads, the trojan is virtually undetectable.

2.) Your Google Chrome suddenly closes and re-opens.

1.) First, uninstall all extensions, just type about:settings on the address bar, the choose Extensions on the left pane menu, and remove all extensions by clicking the trash bin button.
2.) Uninstall Google Chrome and restart your PC.
3.) If you have an anti-virus chances are, the trojan has been missed, so manually perform a whole computer scan.
4.) Once detected, remove every instance or files with the trojan virus infection.
5.) Restart your PC.
6.) Re-install Google Chrome.

If the virus symptoms are still there, it may have already penetrated into your system files. The best way is to back up your files and have it checked by a professional or a repair service. The last resort is to re-format your PC.
