Dear Experts,
My user has a Mac and on it he updates his online store, using Chrome.
Recently, he received an email with an attachment, and when he opened it, he realized that it was a malware.
Ever since then, when he tries to log into his online store, he gets "Access Denied" error.
However, if he uses Chrome Incognito, he is able to log in.
I have tried to remove cookies, histories, and anything that I can, removed extensions ( he didn't have any to start with), uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome, but nothing has worked.
My questions are:
1. How to resolve this issue?
2. What do you recommend for malware scanner for Mac?

Please advise.

Remove all the user's profile folders in ~/Library and see if that helps.

rm -r ~/Library/Google/
rm -r ~/Library/Application\ Support/Google/
