My Google Chrome browser is hijaked  by malicious malwares. Random adds shows up all the time on any site I visit. I tried to reset to default through setting, but no luck and some suggest my buy some antivirus software which I don't trust either. Anyone can offer some manual solutions to this problem, without suggesting buying anything? Thanks

Try scanning your system with  Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

You can also....

In the address bar type: chrome://settings

Click on "Show advanced settings:

Scroll to the bottom and click "Reset browser settings"

Plus you can scan with HitmanPro

Then try TDSSKiller

So many bad "free" scanners out there, but thrust me now is the time to overcome
the skeptics and try out Malwarebytes, its absolutely free for the standard version, and does the job fantastically.

This is the only program I use.

Malwarebytes Trial version worked! But I removed it after using it, don't know if it left something on my machine. We'll see

Thanks all who responded

You should leve it installed and use the 30 days free version for Pro.
You will be amazed how many attacks it stops when you browse the internet.
Thanks for the points!

Make sure you do a reboot and a full scan after one run as it can be more.
