Hi I am having a problem with Google Chrome. It keeps redirecting me to tabs000.online when I start my browser. What can I do to fix this?
I have AVG installed on my computer but it did not do anything. The other day it found a trojan on my computer and removed it. I have the paid version so I did not think this would happen.July 20, 2016 at 12:59 am #68068

Thanks I will do that right now. ThanksJuly 20, 2016 at 1:20 am #68070
Thank you I just finished and everything is back to normal now. I really appreciate the help and will bookmark the website for future reference. Malwarebytes and hitman removed malware from my computer and my redirect virus is now gone. I checked the settings in Google and it’s now just a new page.
