i'm infected with malware that seems to pop up ad windows at random times and my homepage has on the upper left corner a secure search window which gets me to a playbar.biz search engine.Have tried every malware possible without success also msconfig shows no suspicious services running neither i detect harmful apps on the unistall panel.Thanks in advance for your help

Did you check under C:/Program Files/? Or Program Files (x86)/? They can hide there and are easy to notice. Also if you're talking about Chrome, install AdBlock extension

That upper left secure search thingy sounds like a toolbar to me, so it must be installed somewhere. If it's not in C:/, what about chrome extensions, did you check there? Also, malware can mimic a name of some other process in the task manager list. Keep the Task Manager list open and try to detect the process that's activated when the pop up appears.

tried everything guys checking extensions reinstalling chrome reseting settings changing application name to default.e.t.c.Also i used scw spyware or something anti malware bytes and hitman pro.A thing i noticed though is that the toolbar doesn't pop when i launch chrome offline so maybe it's not a 3d party app that causes the problem
