Clean Up Your Chrome Browser Hijacked Settings - Google

A Little Tech Talk - Clean up your browser: hijacked settings - Google Chrome

 Via the Google Chrome Blog

The Google blog reported recently the growing problem of hijacked browser settings. An increasing number of malware add-ons and malicious site coding changes your settings to hijack your browser.

"'s an issue that’s continuing to grow at an alarming rate. You should always be in charge of your own Chrome settings. To help keep your browser settings under your control we added a “reset browser settings” button to Chrome’s settings page in October.

Despite this, settings hijacking remains our number one user complaint. To make sure the reset option reaches everyone who might need it, Chrome will be prompting Windows users whose settings appear to have been changed if they’d like to restore their browser settings back to factory default. If you’ve been affected by settings hijacking and would like to restore your settings, just click “Reset” on the prompt below when it appears."
