What is this homepage virus? Do you mean your homepage reverts to a specific malicious page?

If it's a virus, it won't be in your gmail account, it'll be in your PC. But it sooner sounds like you've simply got your homepage set to a malicious page (which would have been set by a virus in the past, which has since gone after you reinstalled windows). Just go into your internet settings and change your homepage to a website of your choosing and save.

Can you try disabling sync, cleaning up your PC using these steps:

1. Check your browser for any add-ons or extensions you do not recognize and remove them.
2. Check your installed programs and see if there isn't anything suspicious that was installed lately (If there is, simply remove them).
3. Install any popular antivirus and do a quick scan (Majority of the providers do have free versions of their software). Or just use Windows Defender. It works really well in most cases.
4. Install and scan your PC with Malwarebytes and Hitman Pro to clean most adware.

And turning on sync again to see if it cleaned up the issues? Try it in safe mode if you were unsuccessful.

https://malwaretips.com/blogs/homepage-web-com-removal/ virus is this.

It is basicly browser hijacker.

The same thing what always do is to install bs player. Maybe that s where is coming from. I am not sure if it is a virus but always it open new card redirecting to some adverts even porn etc.

Hovewer just a quick scan with hitman pro. Did the thing maybe is not in my gmail account after all but i am not sure.

And i am using NOD 32 antivirus
