So basically, I decided to download it and check for adware since I hadn't done so yet. I was then met with 7 threats (I will attach the log to this post below), so I chose to remove them. Once I rebooted I noticed my Ransomware protection in MWB was turned off, and if I tried to turn it back on it would just say "starting.." and wouldn't actually turn on. I proceeded to get a little worried and did a clean install of Windows, however after reinstalling and signing back into Chrome I decided to run the scan again, and it picked up the same 7 results, and they are still there even after cleaning and rebooting. I have no homepages set, and my only extension is Adblock Pro. I would greatly appreciate any help.

OK... Sign in again... Go through and remove the stuff you see above, by hand. Uninstall Chrome. Restart, now rerun ADWCleaner. Is it Clean?

Install Chrome again and sign in... Run ADWCleaner again, did they come back? If those entries are back, it is into your Google Profile for Chrome... You can export your Bookmarks, delete History "to the beginning of time", remove all extensions, Delete Search Engines (not Google)...

Then go into the Settings / Advanced sync settings and uncheck the Apps and extensions...

Good luck.
