UnTabs Extension - Google Chrome Hijacker!

Recommended Posts

I personally am disinterested in having any sort of anti-virus softwares installed on my computer. However, me being me leaves my digital security door wide-open for hijackers, viruses, Trojans, Spywares.. etc onto my computer. That being said and quite frankly, a few days back, I've had my browser infiltrated by an extension named "UnTabs" which turned out to be a virus.. it was undoubtedly an unpleasant experience as the virus kept displaying pop-ups and redirect pages that actually serve as redirect links to all kinds of crooked sites that might be hazardous to my computer’s security. Worse, it literally cannot be uninstalled through the browser itself, I tried.

Anyway, Nuff talking, main idea of this is the instructions for an effective removal of that nagging, scummy browser hijacker.. In case anybody might be going through this, or may fall for this virus scam.

So here's what I did, right-click command prompt (cmd), run it as an administrator,

Type in and execute: rd /S /Q "%WinDir%\System32\GroupPolicyUsers"

Type in and execute: rd /S /Q "%WinDir%\System32\GroupPolicy"

Type in and execute: gpupdate /force

May scammers rot in hell.
