If you've been experiencing some of the following problems in chrome, it's possible that you have spam or malware installed on your computer:

In the future, please download only the files you have determined to be safe, or visit only the websites you have determined to be safe, so as to avoid being harassed by junk software.

Remove junk programs (for windows and MAC)

Before you reset your browser settings on windows or Mac, check your computer for junk programs.

Check your computer for malware (for Windows)

Chrome can help you find suspicious programs or junk programs on your computer. If chrome detects spam, click Remove. Chrome removes the software, sets some settings to default, and closes the extension.

You can also manually check your computer for malware.

Remove malware manually (for MAC)

You can remove malware from your computer and other programs that you have not installed in your memory.

Recover Quarantined files (for Windows)

Chrome can help you find suspicious programs or junk programs on your computer. If a garbage program is detected, chrome removes the software, sets some settings to default, and closes the extension.

If you think chrome deleted a security file or personal file by mistake, you can recover it.

%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome Cleanup Tool\Quarantine %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome Cleanup Tool\Quarantine

To learn more about the data collected and its use, read the Google Chrome privacy white paper.

Reset browser settings

If you have removed the garbage program or reset your browser settings, you may need to reopen some extensions. To open the extender, click the "more" icon in the upper right corner of the screen, and then click more tool extenders. Please open only the extensions you trust.

Still can't solve the problem? If these steps don't work, visit the chrome help forum.
