Repair My Chrome | Free your PC from Adware Infection

It happens many times you're downloading some software or any sort of executable files a few additional softwares, toolbars, etc. are also installed along with it. Such softwares are often prone to be ransomware that steal your personal data or adware that make show you unwanted adds in your browser.

Some downloads also add up a few undesirable extensions to your browser that display you unwanted websites and also change your default web page and default search engine

One of such is the Youndoo malware that is much difficult to remove. Also at some stages these malwares also block Chrome from functioning properly.

Here are a few steps that you could perform to fix the issues.:

1. Install Adware Removal tools(highly recommended):

This is the most recommended and easiest step, just install the adware removal tools that can search up your entire PC and find such malwares that are creating problems with the functioning.

I've personally use Adware removal tool by TSA. It works efficiently and free of cost.

This video gives a good intro to the tool

2. Delete Recently Installed files:

Once you've realised that your browser isn't having the same appearance what you can do is go to control panel, then go to the add or remove programs then check for any recently installed unkown files and then remove them from your PC.


3. Delete Recently Installed files:
  
Go to the Chrome(or any other browser shortcut) and then right click and go to the target field and check out if any other changes have been made to the target directory. Then move replace the target with the correct one. Refer the video below for more details on how to perform this step.



You don't need to perform all the steps, it usually fixed up with the 1st step itself.
