Hi all,

I've been having trouble with really frequent adcash popups in Chrome recently. I've tried the normal routs of trying to get rid of it but don't seem to be having much luck.

Here is what I've tried so far:

-Scanned with Malwareytes: Didn't resolve the problem, a second scan showed to computer to be clear.

- Checked Extensions in Chrome: No adcash or any other suspicious extension

- Checked programs to be uninstalled on the computers control panel: No suspicious programs on there.

I'm sort of out of ideas at this point. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Try using something like this:
http://www.techsupportall.com/adware-removal-tool/
This tool may reset your browser back to it's default state.
After syncing chome back up (if you use this feature) and you once again start getting this malware it may have infected your online sync data, having to do this is a huge pain in the butt, i've had this happen once, and you will lose everything that you sync but it will be the only option to remove malware thats infected online synced data.

you might try adwcleaner from bleeping computer.download it and run a scan.get rid of anything it comes up with.then download and do the same with junkware removal tool,also from bleeping computer.ideally you would do this and then run a scan with malwarebytes and post all three logs to make sure everything is gone,but most dont want to go to the trouble.
