NNot that I can see Leigh, but rest assured I am on "the case" xx

As it was an add on, it would have appeared to be a genuine thing. I'm not sure if any of the current crop of things would have picked it. I haven't used Chrome at all, is there a setting in your preferences that can increase the security level or prevent unauthorised add ons?

Have done Leigh, but even prior to finding the "add on" it didn't show on any scan I did :( x

Pleased to hear it. I'm glad it was a simple fix. It might be worth performing a MalwareBytes scan now, just to make sure.

Thanks Leigh,

Although I only use the basics in google, it seems a relative had d/loaded arcade games without restricting it. and yes there was an extension, deleted it now and all seems well :) x

From some of my research, it appears to be some "helpful" extensions that have been installed in Chrome, have a look at the extensions installed and see if there are any you don't recognise.

I am getting shopping/advertising pop ups in google chrome, but not in firefox. Is there somewhere in google chrome I can heighten security settings to stop them?

PS It also highlights certain words and phrases in a sentence. E.G If the word "question" appears and I mouse over it, it will show a survey.
Ihave ran malware and deeproot scans but nothing is coming up....
