My Google Chrome is infected with a virus extension called Optimum Search. It was installed without me knowing about it and I supposed it came from a game that I have downloaded prior to infection. Also, there is this “Managed by Optimum Search” thing on the Chrome browser. Overall, Optimum Search virus was able to change my homepage and new tab. It looks very similar to Chrome but without the toolbars and links that I have created to customized by homepage layout.
Please tell me how to remove this Optimum Search virus from Google Chrome, it seems to have gotten deep into the system that is why it is very hard to eliminate. I have scanned the computer with several anti-virus tools but to no avail.
Please help me.
