Chrome self loads and shows video adds

By Rayss523
Aug 21, 2014
  1. I uninstalled chrome but it still reappears. If I ctrl+shift+esc and close the "rundll *32" and close chrome (browser.exe) it stops. I have found some of the malicious files under c:\users\ray\appdata\localLow then 2 folders "TellerHiggs" and "UtilityHiggs". Deleting these does nothing as they just reappear a few seconds later or on the next restart if I have stopped "rundll *32".

    I followed the basic steps in the sticky.

    malwarebytes+windows defender+and DDs all found nothing.
