Google Chrome NoNonsense Cookie Manager needed

Question: Google Chrome NoNonsense Cookie Manager needed

Google Chrome NoNonsense Cookie Manager needed
I have a couple of no-nonsense cookie managers for my Firefox, which are very good!
However, I cannot find a similar quality cookie manager for Google Chrome.
My last two picks apparently came from "Toyland-R-Us" -- which I promptly removed.

Preferred Solution: Google Chrome NoNonsense Cookie Manager needed

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Google Chrome NoNonsense Cookie Manager needed

I know there's a popular extension with the logo a monster eating a cookie or something... I don't recall the name though. Click&Clean seems popular enough (though it deletes more than just cookies since it's a privacy-based extension).

Cookies can be used for authentication, storing your site preferences or anything else that can be saved as text data. Unfortunately they can also be used to track you.

You could turn off cookies completely or just shut off third-party cookies. But that would also keep out useful cookies that many web apps rely upon to work (like Google Mail or Calendar).

With Vanilla you can select which cookies you want to keep on a whitelist. All unwanted cookies are deleted automatically (or manually if you prefer).

If you close your browser often, follow the "recommended usage" on the options page to get rid of unwanted cookies whenever you close Chrome. If you seldom close you browser you should let Vanilla automatically delete unwanted cookies after 30 minutes.
By default no cookies is deleted.

​All the cookies from visited websites will be in "unwanted cookies" list.
Double click the website that you want in whilelist
​Click "Add" to add in whitelist
​Website added in whitelist
​Similarly add other good websites in whitelist

​Here you can choose after how much time the unwanted cookies will be deleted automatically


​You can add websites in whitelist as shown below.

Rather than create a new post in the forum I have just replied to this post since it seems so similar. I have now run Farbar and have attached the two logs.

My computer was running slow so I went to my task manager and seen a whole bunch of Google Chrome processes running. I was confused at first because I don't even have Google Chrome installed. As I tried to stop the processes one at a time, more only popped up. Then I looked it up on the net, found others yall have helped on this site, and know there's something wrong. If possible, would like to know how and when the malware was installed as I have multiple students that use the pc and this is the first time ever had this happen, would like to know if it was a user doing something wrong by accident or on purpose (is even possible to know, but mainly would like to just get pc fixed!)

I right clicked and Disabled Antivirus AutoDetect (Norton); Downloaded zoek and have result log attached. Required a pc reboot and did that too. Problem is still happening. It also changed my home page to google.com (I changed it back). I also uploaded a picture of my task manager if that helps any.

Thanks!!!

Hi, I just found a neat little feature in Google Chrome and I'd like to share it with others who might not have noticed it.

First you'll click the wrench in the top-right of your browser.



Then navigate to the option 'View Background Pages'

Then in the open window you can manage the processes Chrome is currently using. To get a more detailed look click the 'Stats for nerds' option.




And you should find yourself at a page that looks like this:



Hope this helps!

Hello,
Chrome browser stores my passwords in the "Password manager". However, some sites ask me annually or half-annually to change the password. But it is not replaced in the "Password Manager", it keeps the old password, and when I try to open that site, the old password is embedded, have to change it manually. Chrome does not open a pop-up window asking if to save the password, as it has one saved.
In the "Password Manager" cannot do any editing.
Answers will be appreciated.
Thanks
Motim

Answer:Password Manager in Google Chrome

I believe you must delete the saved password and then chrome should ask to save the new password the next time you log in.

Or set chrome to never save passwords and use a better password manager like LastPass.

Fix with Farbar Recovery Scan Tool

This fix was created for this user for use on that particular machine.
Running it on another one may cause damage and render the system unstable. ​Download attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop:

Both files, FRST and fixlist.txt have to be in the same location or the fix will not work!
Right-click on icon and select Run as Administrator to start the tool.
(XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File).
Press the Fix button just once and wait.
If for some reason the tool needs a restart, please make sure you let the system restart normally. After that let the tool complete its run.
When finished FRST will generate a log on the Desktop, called Fixlog.txt.

Please attach it to your reply.

I had been using AVG & found it adequate. I got this computer in fall 2009 with Windows 7 32-bit on it. Since then, I've been using Microsoft Security Essentials.But it never found anything, until this month.Nov 21, I decided to try AVG again. D/Led the 30 day trial version & ran it. It found 4 Trojans in less than an hour. There was a "buy right now" sales pitch - pushy already; I was suspicious. Deleted AVG on 26th.Dec 30, I found right away that my computer is infected with a serious, really active bit of Malware/virus. I don't know its name; it apparently settles into or at least uses a directory in Windows ... C:\\Windows\sysWOW\dllhost.exe is said to be the culprit. MalwareBytes was continuously blocking "ads," I guess they are, generated by dllhost.exe? Try as I may, I've not been able to do anything about it.(Update: I bought & used Malwarebytes in 2014, March thru July I think. It used a lot of CPU while running. Slowed me down. I thoughtlessly deleted it ... at least, I think I did.)The very frequent message that Malwarebytes is blocking outgoing "stuff" must have been generated by the virus itself, as MWB wasn't on here at that time. My CPU was running at=close to 100%. The main user seemed to be C:\Windows\SysWOW64\dllhost.exe.Dec 31, MSE found something!: Trojan:Win32/Powessere.A!reg - "severe, active."

Hi,
 
I noticed a few days ago that my computer was running slow.  I opened the task manager and noticed that the dllhost.exe*32 was in my Task manager over 20 times.  I ran my antivirus and nothing came up, I have both Malware, and Comodo.  I read through some removal logs and found one that was the same issue as mine basically.  I downloaded the Farber Recovery Scan Tool.  At first, I didn't read ALL the way through it and ended up downloading someone else's fixlist.txt that was part of a reply.  At the time I just figured it was a blanket fix for everyone, didn't realize it was for that specific computer.  So I pressed fix and it seemed to work......temporarily.  I also deleted Chrome but it still pops up in my Task Manager although I don't have the program. 
 
So...now I have read more and am going to do this the right way.  I ran a new scan and am including it in the post.  Hopefully someone can help me fix the problem.  I really appreciate all the help.

Hello, I've seen a few topics relating to my problem but wasn't sure if the steps are exactly the same for each person or if they are customized from problem to problem.
 
I'm running windows 7 and as other users have stated, my computer was running slowly, freezing up periodically and minimizing programs I was using. I checked task manager and at that time I saw many dllhost with description COM surrogate running, and trying to end the processes they just kept appearing again. At that time I had AVG as my antivirus and malwarebytes. Only AVG detected the file but it could not delete it. I then uninstalled AVG and changed my antivirus to Bitdefender and that seemed to have stifled the symptoms although I don't believe it ever fixed the problem. My computer was running smoothly for about a week and now I have a filename uirrvmzweu.exe with description google chrome. My computer symptoms are about the same as they were when the dllhost process was running. They both act very similar as far as I can see.

The native bookmark manager of the Chrome browser is as basic as it gets. All it enables you to do is to search bookmarks, move them to and from folders, and to delete or edit them.

When you compare that to the Firefox bookmarks manager for example, you will notice that it is far superior. From options to sort bookmarks in multiple ways over extensive editing option to the display of additional information about each bookmark in the interface.

Google has released a new Bookmark Manager extension for Chrome and Chromium-based browsers that aims to improve the native bookmark manager.

It replaces the bookmarks manager which you notice when you open the bookmarks in the browser. Instead of displaying folders and links only, colorful tiles and other information are displayed by it by default now.

You find search, edit and import/export options at the top now which is an improvement to the native implementation. The search has been improved by Google as it will include information found on the page itself in the search and not only the bookmark title, snippet and url.

The left displays all folders just like before but with options to display subfolders right away or hide them instead.

The location of each bookmark is highlighted by the tile, and drag & drop operations are supported to move bookmarks around. Tiles seem to be placeholder icons. New bookmarks show a thumbnail image of the site in question instead.

The extension adds a star icon to the toolbar that you ca... Read more

Answer:Google Chrome Right Application of Java (Browser) needed?

Yes, for plugins to work they must match the "bitness" of the host program (not only browsers, but for all software generally speaking).

The 64 bit Java can the only be hosted in 64 bits browsers, or used in standalone Java programs. For 32 bits to work, you must install 32 bits Java too. They both can coexist with no problems at all.

Answer:Assistance needed - Google chrome browser hijack

Hello,
Before we start please read and note the following:
Limit your internet access to posting here, some infections just wait to steal typed-in passwords.
Don't run any scripts or tools on your own, unsupervised usage may cause more harm than good.
Do not paste the logs in your posts, attachments make my work easier. There is a Upload a File button which you can use to attach your reports. Attach all reports.
Stay with me to the end, the absence of symptoms doesn't mean that your machine is fully operational.
Note that we may live in totally different time zones, what may cause some delays between answers.
Do not ask for help for your business PC. Companies are making revenue via computers, so it is good thing to pay someone to repair it.

I can't foresee everything, so if anything unexpected happens, please stop and inform me!
There are no silly questions. Never be afraid to ask if in doubt!

I still need Addition.txt report.

I know there are options to add and delete search engines, which is great. The problem is that now that the list of browsers has been altered by someone, am I able to add it back again. I have no problem getting to Google.co.nz, but my browser refuses to browse to the.com engine.

If someone is able to assist me with this issue, I would be gratefull.

Many thanks in advance.
 

Answer:Help needed changing Search engines in Google Chrome

Type www. google.com/ncr in the address bar
The ncr stands for no country redirect and will take you to English speaking results. After you press enter, the ncr will disappear.

All of the icon of application (.exe) files suddenly become blank , before this problem occured the .exe icons show properly like Nvidia will show Nvidia icon & Norton will show Norton icon.

But now , it's all blank icons ! Take a look at the screenshots .

Google Chrome

But it shows proper icon in my Windows Explorer .




I have already :
- Re-installed
- Searched through the internet
- Default File Type Associations - Restore
but still no luck.

I don't know what happened , it occurred recently . I've disabled my system restore so there's no chance I can restore to previous session.

I'm still able to open the downloaded application files but the icon is messing up which is showing blank icon !
But it shows properly in Windows Explorer.

Please help !

Answer:Blank .exe icon in Google Chrome & Internet Download Manager.

Hi PirateCreed,

I came across your problem because I had the same problem you mention with a new install of Google Chrome today. Could have been a problem for me because I used the corporate msi to install Chrome because I did not really want the program to install to the C: drive (yea, good luck with that one). I could probably write a book about that.

So this is what I did:

1. Uninstalled the 32-bit Chrome.
2. Search the C: drive for any mention of Chrome. May have to make sure hidden files are showing. Found remnants in ProgramData, Program Files (x86), and my Windows 7 x64 user profile. Deleted all.
3. Reboot.
4. Search through the registry for Chrome (complete word only). Deleted all relevant keys (gotta be careful here).
5. Reboot.
6. Went back to the download page for Chrome, chose the Alternate (offline) Google Chrome installer (Windows), selected the Alternate installer for all user accounts link, and under the Download Chrome button selected the 64-bit version (not sure if that is necessary but since I have x64, why not).

64-bit - https://www.google.com/chrome/browser/?platform=win64
32-bit - https://www.google.com/chrome/browser/?platform=win

7. Let the Chrome install, since it is for all users it will install in the Program Files (x86) folder, don't ask me why. I always assumed x64 programs installed to the Program Files directory.
8. Reboot.
9. Joy at last.

Hope this helps but of course your mileage may vary.

Hello -
A customer of mine brought their personal laptop to me to look into why large amounts of data are being used up on their Verizon Hotspot.  This is a Windows 7 Home Premium laptop.  I ran multiple virus scans including ComboFix and Malwarebytes that returned zero results.  I then noticed in Task Manager that there were multiple processes running that belonged to Google Chrome.  I then verified that Chrome is not even installed.  I found the running .exe file in the \userprofile\appdata\locallow\Google directory.  Rebooted into 'Safe Mode' and then removed the folder and then scanned the registry for the same .exe name and removed them as well.  I then restarted the pc and the files reappeared, this time in the Adobe directory rather than Google.  I repeated the steps above with the same results.  Would you please help me with removing this virus?  Thank you.

A fake Google chrome file and dllhost.exe 32 file keeps spamming my task manager.

I turned my thumbnail preview off and I haven't seen dllhost.exe 32* since but I'm not sure if its completely takin care of that problem. My temporary fix for the fake Google Chrome file right now is when it starts spamming my task manager I right-click on it> open file location> start logging off and when the force shutdown menu appears I click cancel. For some reason it completely vanishes from my task manager for a couple seconds when I start logging off. Then I go back to my "open file location" and quickly delete the file before it starts back up. This stops it from spamming me but I have to do it every time I get on my computer. Still looking for a permanent solution for it.

Hello there,
 
I recently noticed my laptop running very slow, especially when using Youtube videos.  I deleted some old junk to free up some memory but that didn't help.  Defragged my laptop and ran several virus scans, but no improvment and nothing found on the scans.  I found a new program installed on my laptop called "Spigot Search Protection" which I uninstalled.  No improvement after this.  I then noticed about a dozen processes running on my Task Manager that appeared to be Google Chrome windows.  They were using up a ton of memory... and I use Firefox not chrome so I thought it was weird.  I uninstalled Google chrome, but they remained open and listed as google chrome programs.  I opened the file location and ran a virus scan directly, and it came back with no threats detected  (I ran Kaspersky). The image name for each process that is running is Lnzdypqnuf.exe*32 and appears as a GoogleChrome file.
At this time I did a Google search and came up with this website (it seems others have had the exact same problem).  I saw that each case should be handled specifically, so I decided to register and post instead of trying to figure it out myself.

Hello,

First off, I'm a new member to the forum and I would like to express my sincere appreciation for help resolving this problem. I'm usually able to clean up malware but have not been successful in this case. As I've read through the furum, I've noticed other posts with a similar issue so this must be something new going around.

The issue I have is popups (always three windows) which became noticeable about five days ago and prompted my actions. I have two accounts on the infected PC and the issue is present on one account while the other account is free of the issue. As I investigated, I noticed a fake google chrome entry in the processes tab of the task manager. Its name is "cphngsji.exe*32" and its listed description is "google chrome." There are 10 to 15 entries in the task manager and it varies increasing and decreasing randomly. The randomly increasing and decreasing entries are visible and correspond to peaks and valleys in the CPU usage trace on the performance tab of the task manager. I also have an issue with the CPU fan running a great deal of the time when the infected account is active. This began several months ago and I now believe it is a result of this infection.

So far I have run my antivirus (McAfee), a tool called SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition. They were able to find and fix other bugs but not this one. I also ran a McAfee tool called 'GetSusp' which identified three PUP's and one Assumed Dirty ... Read more

Has anyone figured out chrome cookie control?

Seems like I can't get the browser to act the same way twice.
I'm trying Vanilla Cookie Manager out of desperation.

Seems like the only way I can avoid tracking cookies and still be logged on to some sites when I navigate there is to set all to Allow Local Data. Then go around and log in to a bunch of sites I use most. Then set cookies to Session Only. Then set LastPass to AutoLogin for the sites where the cookie doesn't work.

I can't seem to get any consistent behavior. It's really frustrating they haven't done anything about this stuff in 20 years!

Answer:chrome cookie control

Seems like Vanilla Cookie Manager does nothing good for me. I used it yesterday and today I was manually cleaning out about 40 tracking cookies. Back to my old method of using the built in Chromium white list.

This is happening all the time on my laptop (W7 ENT 64) and also on 1 site on my desktop (Vista HomePremium 64)

I log into a site, the site says "thank you for logging in, please wait while we redirect you" then it comes back to the main page and I'm not logged in. I repeat the process as many times as I want but I'll never log in. the only solution is to clean the site's cookies, THEN I can log in --- but once the cookie expires I have to clean cookies again to log in again. (and ticking/unticking the "remember me" box doesnt help)

Any ideas? my other laptop doesnt do this, and only 1 site on my desktop does it sometimes... (if I had to venture a guess I'd guess it's a security setting in W7 ENT)

Hello,
 
I'm trying to repair my parents computer. They were getting Trojan horse warning messages and crashing to blue screens. So far I have updated the BIOS and uninstalled all the browser addons and questionable apps I found on there PC. Since updating the BIOS it hasn't crashed to blue screen. However I'm getting a lot of lywqyjla.exe processes that say they belong to Google Chrome. I uninstalled Google Chrome and they are still there. Each of them is using varying amounts of memory and the CPU usage keeps spiking. I have run malware bytes and adw cleaner, each of them said they found and removed threats but these processes keep showing up.

I've tried multiple anti-everything programs from Super Anti-Spyware, Malwarebytes, ComboFix, Spybot S&D, and various online scans that have found nothing, or found something but never fully cleaned my system. For a week or two, Google was being redirected to various ad sites, but after my system was "cleaned" everything was fine. Now today, anything remotely related to Google won't load at all. I've tried to manually remove the TDSS google-redirecting virus, but I have none of the files that supposedly come along with the virus.

An install of Google Crhome browser is apparantly recording cookies while the Google Chrome browser itself is not being used;  the cookies seem to be of webpages and sites that other people in this location visit through another browser.  This makes me thing that the Google Chrome browser sneaks information from the user of other browsers on the computer, and this makes me wonder, what more is being done with this set of cookies lifted from the other browser?
 
This cannot be normal; is it?
 
Every day, I come to the particular computer with google chrome on it, open history, see the cookies listed, delete them, and only use the browser in Incognito mode.  No cookies recorded during any of my usage sessions.  Later, after other people who never use Chrome use the computer, go online (with Internet Explorer), makes their website visits, and then finish; when I come back to use the computer again and go online in incognito mode on Chrome, ... there again are more cookies listed, and mostly from sites that I did not visit.
 
This just seems like it should not be happening.  Tell me about it?

google, which has gone from trendy outsider competitor to the previous dark empire Microsoft, to world's most intrusive big brother data miner in a few short years, now has a "cookie opt out plug in" for IE and FF. the purpose of this according to google is to permanently block doubleclick advertising cookies on your browser. This plug in allegedly will not be erased when you clear your cookies.

anybody on the forum use this allegedly permanent cookie blocker thing? Will it protect from the latest marketing strategy which is posting an advertisement in the middle of the page that follows your cursor around as you navigate up and down the page?

Hello everyone. I apologize for not being an active user, but I always read the forums whenever a problem arises. However, I'm very confused at this point and was hoping to receive some help. This is a lenghty description, so I apologize in advance. I'll have a "too long, didn't read" at the bottom lol.
 
On my Windows 7 laptop, I use IE9. Now whenever I visit www.gamefaqs.com, (which I've been going to for years, a legit site about gaming) there will be times as I browse through that I all of a sudden have a new window opening attempting to navigate somewhere. However, my anti-virus, Norton Internet Security 2013, apparently blocks it as the windows always show "Navigation Canceled." But I wondered why do these windows come up sometimes, (and it's only on gamefaqs).
 
The URL of the blocked windows begin with "cm.g.doubleclick.net" and gives off more random characters. Curious, I looked it up. So the cm.g.doubleclick.net has a positve review from Norton Safe Web and Webutaion, (which shows rating from Norton, MyWOT, etc.) however reviews from users on Norton Safe Web says it's a spam site which makes sense. However, I came across two things researching this.
 
The first is that "cm.g.doubleclick.net" is a Google thing that they do something with IE9 to where they get ads in and it's a cookie matcher, (hence the cm) to match your browsing and what not. Ok, seems like nothing I can do since it's an IE9 issue? On another laptop which uses XP and IE8 there is no p... Read more

Answer:Is cm.g.doubleclick.net spyware/adware or a Google cookie matcher or both?

Hey leon, and welcome.
 
There's a 99% chance you have something, because getting a popup to a suspicious link is a staple of many forms of malware.  Chances are, it's a newer form of malware that Norton doesn't have a signature of in its database; hence, why it can't pick it up.
 
A few questions:
Have you tried to clear all cookies and empty the cache?
Do you visit any other sites on a regular basis?
What sorts of things are in the popup?
Do you have a pop-up blocker or an ad blocker?
Here's something for you to do to help some who isn't me knows what they're doing:
 
Download Security Check from here or here and make sure you either save it to the Desktop or a folder you can easily remember.
Double click SecurityCheck.exe, and follow the directions in the black box.
At the end of the scan, a Notepad document named checkup.txt should appear.  Copy and paste all of the contents here as-is (or save the file into a non-temporary folder, such as your Documents folder)
NOTE: If your security application requests permission for DIG.EXE to access the internet, give it permission to do so.
Do not take any other action based on the log, since it does give false positives.  Wait for further assistance.
You should be able to remove Spybot just fine by deleting the folder.  However, if it keeps popping up, ne t'inquiete pas.  Chances are in later steps it will be a thing of the past by proxy of removing this malware.

Chrome OS is not taking off as Google might have wanted, but the company is not slowing down on development. To get more people to get into the world of Chrome OS, Google has come up with a rather impressive plan. Apparently, the search giant is working on a version of the Chrome web browser that replicates functions of Chrome OS right inside Windows 8.

According to The Verge, the latest developer version of Chrome browser for Windows 8 can be configured to run in Metro (Modern UI). However, the browser is suffering from several bugs so Metro mode doesn?t perform well enough and there are frequent crashes. More important than that, however, is that this new version of Chrome browser brings to the table Chrome OS design, Chrome app launcher, Google app menu bar and support for windows within windows. In other words, the stepping stones for Chrome OS in Windows 8, and a major coup by Google.

The lifespan of the tracking cookie is about to expire. With the rapid emergence of mobile devices, the big three ? Facebook, Google, and Apple ? have turned to new and more potent methods for advertisers to keep track of you across multiple devices.

The impending death of the cookie can be traced to the launch of the iPhone in 2007. Apple decided to disable cookie functionality in iPhones because it believed advertisers would be able to garner too much personal information as they tracked you across websites, according to Medialets chief executive Eric Litman. Third-party cookies still work on Google?s Chrome browser and the Android OS, but they don?t function effectively on a large number of smartphones and tablets produced by other companies. Also, because cookies can only track you while you?re using a browser ? not a mobile app ? they have very limited relevance on mobile devices.

Here?s how each of the big mobile players is trying to replace the cookie with its own brand of tracking.

Answer:The cookie is dead. Here’s how Facebook, Google, and Apple are tracking you now

Very interesting article, thanks for sharing. How are they getting away with tracking someone and gathering information without it being considered some type of crime?

As far as them having the right to do this tracking to begin with based on contractual agreements. I think contracts that have the 'clause "Terms subject to change without notification or authorization" should be considered illegal in my opinion, because when you stop and think about it, basically they are saying they can do what they want to do and write in whatever they like later, so it doesn't matter how you feel about it.

So you are agreeing to a one sided contract, that's not an agreement, that's a scam if you ask me. Problem is that a lot of these companies based in the USA doing this tracking setup shop overseas where American laws don't apply.

We are supposed to trust that NO PERSONALLY IDENTIFYABLE INFORMATION is being gathered just because they say so? It becomes personal when they target individuals in the manner of groups.

So if Google, Facebook, and Microsoft track you then it's just considered sound marketting business, but if an individual does it then it's considered a crime. Hmmm, sounds like the big 3 should be considered organized crime if you ask me when you look at it that way.

The thing about all this information gathering that's scary is I suspect if you were to report these activities that the powers that be, they would probably be ... Read more

As noted above, I'm currently having problems with a process that is being detected as Gooogle Chrome taking up most of the resources on my system. This, even though I don't have Chrome installed on my computer. I've tried deleting the file, but it just pops up somewhere else.

I ran FRST and have attached the resulting reports to this thread. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

I have two gmail accounts.   Before Firefox 57.0.3, I had no troubles, everything worked, I could access them through the gmail "button" icon, or the word "gmail" up in the corner of the google page.   The new Firefox "quantum", version 57, installed itself, and once I figured out where everything was, there was no problem.  Then there was an update to 57.0.2, again, no problem.
 
AS SOON AS the 57.0.3 update of the new Firefox was installed, the next time I opened Firefox, the gmail button icon changed to a "sign in" box.  When I clicked the box, used my link, or clicked the "gmail", I got a notice that there were "problems with my cookie settings".    Nothing in gmail would work, and my google "search suggestions" disappeared..
 
ODDLY, EVERY OTHER  COOKIE in the computer seems to work fine.   The ONLY cookie problem is with google.
 
I have a tablet computer using 8.1, and with that computer, there was no issue, it updated, it worked, no drama.   Only the Win7 computer is a problem, but naturally it is the main one, and due to certain software, I cannot update it at present, until versions certified for 10 are released   I do have another that still uses Vista, which I have not checked.  
 
So the Win 7 box (a dell M6300 laptop used for 3D CAD and engineering analysis) remains a problem.

Relaunch Chrome (button on bottom).

The new bookmark manager does not allow choice of where to place new bookmarks, it is auto based on content and tags of site. Also, default is to show "Tiles" when bookmark manager is opened.

For the past few days when I open up Google Chrome I get a white page with a yellow ribbon at the top that says "Chrome didn't shut down correctly" and then an option to "restore" which only brings me to a new tab page.
I have looked for solutions and have tried going into appdata and changing my "Default" folder into "Default_old" then closing down Chrome and opening it again but that doesn't work (and I don't get another "Default" folder as the instructions says I should). I have tried disabling my extensions (of which pretty much all of them are ad blockers) and apps. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Chrome but so far nothing has worked. Am I just not doing these things correctly? Is there another way I can stop this? Because I would really love to open up Chrome and have my homepages there.
 
Thanks!

Whenever I open Google Chrome the first time after I finish booting my computer, it hangs for three seconds, during that time I see a wild amount of solid flashing on my hard-drive light indicator.

Upon looking on my task manager, I see 4 Chrome processes running, one of which seems to be causing a'lot of activity on one of the hard-drives. After a said few seconds the process disappears leaving only three processes and no hard-drive activity.

Is there anyway of stopping this kind of strange hard-drive activity when 'm opening chrome? I'm afraid the repeat thrashing might cause my hard-drive to wear out prematurely.

If anyone can help, please respond.

Thank you in advance.

After googling and reading several threads it appears there is some sort of mutating virus on my system. It does not appear that there is a standard anti-virus fix (yet) and I'm fairly basic in my computer tech skills. I got directed to this site from a few others hence I'm here seeking some help.

I've followed the 3 steps and uploaded the 2 files as directed

My computer is running Windows 7.
 
About a week ago, I started getting messages saying "Google Chrome has crashed" when Google Chrome was not open. When I opened task manager, many Google Chrome processes under the same name were running. To try to fix the problem, I uninstalled Google Chrome, but the processes are still running.
 
Right now there are about 15 processes named "dlxyoesklw.exe *32" with the description "Google Chrome" in the task manager. The number of running processes changed frequently, and there are sometimes more than 30 running, all using various amounts of memory. When I press "End Process," more processes just appear.
 
If I press "Open File Location," it now takes me to C:\Users\Owner\AppData\LocalLow\EmieBrowserModeList\igsqvescqy\mwqvrxfk
If I try to delete the .exe file, it says "The action can't be completed because the file is open in Google Chrome. Close the file and try again" but of course Google Chrome is uninstalled.
 
Twice I have tried to delete the whole folder by restarting the computer and quickly deleting it before the processes launched. This did not work, as the processes still appeared after the file was deleted, and the folder relocated to a new one under \AppData\LocalLow\
The folder used to be in \AppData\LocalLow\EmieSiteList\ before it relocated.

I've only recently been getting the issue the past few days, but i don't like it.

Basically before this began to happen, i'de start up firefox which was configured to load onto my customized google homepage, which involved an (i presume) automatic loggin, or that it stayed logged in.

Recently, when i open firefox a 'potentially harmful cookie' warning box pops up from windows defender, and Google is never logged in, so i then do a number of things.

Sign in to google, which i now have to do every time i open firefox. Secondly, remove the threat, sometimes a different box pops up that shows two of the same cookie, and one of them cannot be removed... The problem is no matter how many times i remove it, it's back the next time i open firefox.

this is the information i can gather about the cookie.

Threat Location: C:\users\*myname*\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\zhkiyqdd.default\cookies.sqlite

Threat Name: Found tracking cookie.tribalfusion (there is a few that pops up here with different names, this is the current one im looking at)

then it says 'detect on open'.

From what i can gather. This is a cookie in the firefox 3.x version's cookie folder, i have already tried to go and delete 'cookies.sqlite' to no avail. it returns, and the 'potential threat' pops up again when i open up firefox, running an AVG virus scan picks up nothing except a number of tracking cookie...

I looked at my task manager, nothing was showing under applications running, aside from nero, but under processes, there are 8+ different things for chrome. (wiljgkxpsy.exe*.32).
I clicked on open folder and apparently the folder was created yesterday at 348pm. The files are hidden and are under: AppData/LocallowApple Computer/CNVCZPGV/MUQUVESC
I ran Microsoft Security and nothing was flagged. I also tried Malware. Nothing related to Chrome was found.

Also, my mouse pointer on the screen is still showing but also will show a round ball like it's waiting/processing something. This didn't happen until last night after the message about chrome crashing.

So I'm thinking I might have had a couple of other infections that were dormant for a while or Malwarebytes or Symantec never noticed.After fixing that, I noticed Google Chrome stopped working. When I started googling in Firefox and IE i noticed the page would redirect. And then an the "Internet Explorer Script Error" with the URL pointing to apparent spam urls "http;//celebrity-gossip.net/ashley-tisdale..." as an example. So I updated and ran Malwarebytes AM, Symantec & Microsoft Defender to see what they would. Symantec found an bloodhound virus in an archived drive. And i cleaned whatever Malwarebytes found, forgot now since its been a 4 days.I've tried the TDDSkiller.exe and that wouldnt launch. I tried renaming it too, but nothing.I found another thread and tried cleaning with SuperAntiSpyware and Hitman.I don't remember the correct order I've ran these, but followed according to the threads, including safed mode, internet off, etc...Anyways, any help is appreciated. here is the log:.DDS (Ver_11-03-05.01) - NTFSx86 Run by Mikael at 21:35:05.37 on Thu 04/07/2011Internet Explorer: 7.0.5730.13 BrowserJavaVersion: 1.6.0_24Microsoft Windows XP Professional 5.1.2600.3.1252.1.1033.18.2047.902 [GMT -7:00].AV: Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition *Enabled/Updated* {FB06448E-52B8-493A-90F3-E43226D3305C}.===========...

Hi! I am a heavy google search user who frequently uses google to: define ___, calculate equations etc.
 
But recently my google search results is changed to:

 
The top bar still appears perfectly normal when I am not in the search result page:

 
If it is related, bing has problem as well - it goes black screen:

 
The characteristics are:
One page itself:
- Words appear bigger
- It seems like I've log out but I am actually still logged in
- Google tips and tricks such as define, tilt etc all are not working
- Clicking "more" and "search tools" refresh the page and does nothing. 
Others:
- In other places such as email, youtube, the functionality remains completely normal and unaffected
- I do not think the problem is related to the external internet settings as other devices are able to access these functions/websites without any problem. 
- I have no problem accessing any other webpages.
 
Solutions tried and still not working:
- Completely reset google chrome's setting
- Reinstalling google chrome
- Resetting internet explorer setting
- Resetting computer's ip setting through cmd- netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
- Full scan with avast antivirus.
 
Any other ideas please? Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated as these tips and tricks are a truly useful function for me. 

Answer:Google Chrome: Google Search Extra Functions (Tips) Not Working

 I too have the exact same problem. i have tried hard for a month+ on 100s of sites with no avail. this probably is some super smart form of malware/virus which changes your IE's lan proxy settings to "127.0.0.1:8080.proxy.pac", this seems to affect chome and IE while firefox looks ok. the only "visible" difference is with the google main page as you described you'll also notice that at the bottom of the page, the number of page results are limited to 10 and no more, you just cant see more results than that. I couldnt find any any solid fix to this (not even complete reformat) The only temporary solution(till next reboot) seems to be to go to internet options in IE - connections tab - deselect that proxy setting and select automatically detect settings though i personally use hola better internet extension which seems to fix the problem till its kept on. I want this dreaded issue to get some attention so that am actual solution is found :/

For a few days now, after getting one of those fake "antivirus" programs my Google Chrome browser is unable to open any pages. I can open them in IE and Firefox, but on those browsers any links I click typically get redirected to random advertisement websites rather than the page I'm trying to reach.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

Apologies if this has been previously addressed, but I couldn't find much by searching through the forums.

I'm wondering if there is a way to permanently hide/remove recently visited sites from the Google home page in the Chrome browser?

I have set Chrome to "Keep local data only until I quit my browser," and installed the Click & Clean extension from the Chrome Web Store and set it to "Delete private data when Chrome closes," (http://www.howtogeek.com/137681/how-to-automatically-clear-private-data-when-you-close-your-browser/) but neither of these actions are deleting those recently viewed sites from the Google home page.

Judging by the amount of complaints found through googling, there are a lot of people who hate this, so I'm hoping there's a work around out there that I just haven't found yet. If anyone can point me in the right direction, I would sincerely appreciate it!

I'm running Mac OS X v. 10.6.8, and Chrome version 30.0.1599.101 (up to date at time of posting).
 

Answer:Google Chrome recently visited sites on google home page - permanently hide?

Has anyone successfully used Click & Clean for this purpose? :S

It doesn?t matter what claims a software company makes, there?s one universal law of product design that continues to hold true ? nothing is unhackable.

That?s where Parisa Tabriz comes in, Google?s head of product security for the company?s Chrome browser. Ever since her entry into Google in 2007, the 34-year-old security expert and her team have detected countless bugs and loopholes in Chrome?s security system, patching them before they can be exploited by outside hackers. She was even featured on Forbes? 2012 ?Top 30 People Under 30 To Watch In the Technology Industry? list. It?s no wonder then that she?s earned herself the moniker of ?Security Princess? among both cyber security professionals and the media.

Calling themselves the ?Department of Chromeland Security? Tabriz and her team of 30 white hat hackers (security researchers who attempt to hack systems for good, as opposed to black hat hackers that breach software for personal gain or sport) are hard at work everyday to make Chrome the most safe browsing experience it can possibly be.

Hello, I followed the preparation guide, but I am not sure what I am infected with, so I could not post that. It says GMER for 32 bit windows only, and I have window 7 64-bit. But....I do know that I am redirected whenever I search google in both google chrome and firefox. Also IE will not open for use, it just opens as though its loading up and then a window comes up and says that IE is not working at this moment and microsoft will notify me if there is a solution. Here's what dds gave me.
