Sometimes, viruses, horses, Trojans and any other are hidden in programs which we download from the internet and or from other sources. In case your computer/browser begun malfunctioning after installing a specific program you might have downloaded from a non trusted vendor, you must remove it and see if the problem gets solved. At least that am sure since it has ever happened to me when I was performing a free VPN connection using a free software I got from the net.

Perform a full pc virus scan

In order to scan your computer, you will need to have an active anti-virus program and which is updated. You can use a paid version of the AV since for they tend to be more secure than the free ones which expire after the trial period.

Malwarebytes is both a free and pro Anti-Malware software which many praise for being great when it comes to tracing and removing all possible worms, rootkits, dialers, trojans, , spyware, rogues and other malwares from your PC and browser.

Reinstalling Windows

Sometimes, many PC users end up failing to completely get rid of and or remove all malware and virus related threats in their machines with the only option remaining being to do a re-installing of their operating system. However, this should only be used as a last resort after trying all of the above since it has many risks involved for example data loss in case you had not securely backed up everything.
