Do I have browser malware and what can I use to remove it?
Question by kushal mahajan /

I think I have malware installed that is affecting my browsers:

Chrome: I think some program/script is installed through which I am continuously seeing two iframe style adds (left and right) of every webpage . They are very annoying and most importantly I am concerned about security.

IE9: I am getting clicks or pop ups on every page.

Can you please suggest a good malware/adware removal tool to clean up my browsers?

    check what extensions you have installed. Uninstall as many as you can. Goto control panel, see how many softwares you can do without. uninstall as many as you can. Once the spam is uninstalled, you're good to go.

    Malwarebytes, its a free Spyware scanner, give it a shot

  • mohit kumar

    Use IObit Malware Fighter or Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. For both free version would be enough.
