Despite the fact that I have McAfee Antivirus recently I seem to have been infected with a browser hijacker.
Symptoms: I use Chrome browser. Once in a while when I enter a search term in google and click on a link in the results page, the browser redirects to some irrelevant site with some marketing messages. Pls note, as of now, if I right click on the results link and open in a new tab, it works fine. I can be more descriptive about the addresses, etc is it helps to detect the hijacker. Just that I have to wait until it happens the next time. Also, since this started happening, the browser crashes, which never used to happen before, while typing search terms in google search page.
While I see many discussion topics with this I would like some help in picking up some CURRENT tools for identifying this hijacker and walk me through the removal of it. Hence this new thread.
