Malvertisement Website Redirect 15

How do I remove this Malvertisement Website Redirect 15 link in my PC to the http :// www .adnetworkperformance .  com/script/preurl . php?r=1781859 which is only happening when I use google chrome and not with IE or Edge.  Norton Security Suite states that it is from the Google Chrome program folder, but I have no reference to the attacking file to be able to physical remove it from my PC and/or it's registry.

Hi, Highlander. Run a Norton Full Scan and also a scan with MalwareBytes Free Edition to see what they pick up.

You can choose to run the free trial if you wish.

That is the first thing I did, but nothing showed on the full scan or by Malwarebytes!  I came here hoping someone might have some intel on a filename or registry string that I could manually extract to get ride of it, because if it is all to connect it would not be good!

Here's a link to the Symantec page, below. If you run NPE, be careful what you delete, as it can delete needed system files.

If that doesn't get rid of it, you can go to one of the free malware removal sites we recommend, where an expert will help clean your system. If so, pick one and stay with that expert until your system is declared clean.

Re: Malvertisement Website Redirect 15

I ran Norton Power Eraser and nothing showed up.  Currently I am not getting this when I use Google Chrome, but Windows, Norton, etc., just had some updates. Nothing new though that was quarantined in Norton or Malwarebytes. We'll see!

If this is only happening in Chrome, check all your extensions to see if you see anything unusual there. Try disabling all extensions to see if there is any change.

Clearing the Chrome Browsing Data may help. 

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.
