I think I have at last managed to get rid of the wisersearch malware I have had for months.

I have noticed now however, that when I click the new tab box in the browser it comes up with this address in the tab box

"chrome-extension://pmgkeimkiojpjcoiiipekfjaopchhjga/snt.html"

and tells me "this web page is not found".

Anyone know how I can restore the normal chrome search page that used to appear?

In simple terms please :-)

John

I don't suppose "get rid of Chrome" qualifies as the right type of 'simple'.

That browser is getting quite a bad reputation, as it gets VERY demanding about what you see and what IT sees.

I gave it up after many problems...

Perhaps someone else knows the simple answer YOU wish.

Great stuff, guest. I went to the link and one of the things it said was to check the extensions, so I did that first and hey presto, there was a strange extension called simple tab, deleted that, now everything is back to normal.

Thanks for your tip, without that I don't know how long it would have been before I checked the extensions, but I,ll certainly check on a regular basis in future.

Thanks.

Bill, I agree, it is starting to get a bit demanding now but not really sure of a suitable alternative, or if truth is told, I'm too lazy to risk changing it at the moment.
