    • After I followed all the steps and deleted chromium my chrome browser was insanely slow every time I opened it my CPU would spike idk what is happening.

  • We wouldn’t suggest our readers software that is not safe to use. Which Remover tool are you exactly referring to?

  • Hey i installed CCleaner and for some reason after my CCleaner got installed chromium icon just appeared on my desktop and in my task bar so i did go in control panel and uninstalled after that i saw no things hijacking my browser or pop-ups after like 2 months or more i saw my DISK USAGE was 100% and i called my brothers he knows about computers and he told me that may be some malware i simpy played Steam games and i didnt download any unsafe files from internet not even music ! After that i factory reset my pc after that My pc was going slow ..And i heard malware could have Restore Point i got so scared that it may come back after 1 month i saw my cooling fan was just from it self going high i thought that was dust but it was completly clean i scanned my system with AVAST Antivirus nothing was there and i was just checking my system files and i saw 1 or 2 files having alot of numbers i thought that was some system files but when i went in Chromium was there and just copying some files from my D: Drive and from my Web Browser history i got so scared ..When i entered in that file AVAST automaticlly said infection detected i tried going in safe mode it will not allow me i couldnt do anything but there were no popups or hijacking my browser PC was just slow after that i got MAD and i simply took my system down and deleted everything i even removed win8.1 after that i installed new Win8.1 is there any possibilty that he can come back because i have same HDD ? I know this is a long story but i want you everything to know 😀 ! Please answer,thanks !

    • If you have re-installed everything, there’s probably no need to worry. How is your PC behaving now? Are there any problems after you re-installed Windows?

  • Probably not. Still, scanning the folder might not be a bad idea. Tell us in the comments if anything got detected.

  • Remove the IP address that you’ve send us as well as any other similar address and then save the file.

  • Since those IP’s are more than likely coming from the unwanted software, we advise you to delete them and then save the changes to the Hosts file.

  • Getting the free version of SpyHunter would provide with the scanner function of the program which would detect any suspicious and potentially unwanted or harmful files on your PC but you will need to manually remove them. If you opt for the paid version of the program, it will also provide you with a removal tool that will almost always succeed in removing the problematic software. In addition to that, even if the program fails to resolve your issue, you have the option to ask for live support from the program’s developers so that you can receive a custom fix method for your specific situation.

  • Those addresses aren’t necessarily harmful yet they should still be removed from your Hosts file since they aren’t supposed to be there. Be sure to delete them and save the changes to the Hosts file.

  • I tried the conventional ways one but couldn’t advance it more because I don’t want to risk myself by meddling with system files & registries, so I tried to download your recommended software and installed it… the bad news is, installation error (your software can’t be installed in my PC).

    • What error dos it give you? Also, do you have Administrator rights on the PC that you’re using?

  • Hi, i have been following these steps and stuck in step 4, I can see below the local host, they are some ip adress that are supiscious

    • Well, it means that you should probably delete the IPs from the Hosts file where you found them. Those aren’t supposed to be there so make sure you remove them from the file and save the changes.

  • I have this chromium virus. i think i got most of it off but i recall seeing something else that was associated with it when i was deleting and i forgot to write it down. It started with a “P” like pankan or something like that. Is this a virus too that need to be removed and what is the proper spelling so i can search for it. Thanks!

  • alright so, I had dealt with this before. I simply deleted it. But from another website, I got it, and couldn’t find it, so I simply removed it from the computer in the Control Panel. Both of these made my computer really laggy and it had things glitch out. I think it also started some random youtube links I had open at the time.

    • Complete the other steps – it is common for such software to not be present in the list of programs in the Control Panel.

    • Hi Tawseef,
      you can remove the program from your Programs List in Settings/Control Panel in Windows, though we recommend you to keep the antivirus software to keep your system safe

    • Hi Tawseef,
      did you double click the install file, so you can start the installation? What is the issue you are encountering?

  • when I try to uninstall it it states, even after entering a pin “please contact a system admin” and it won’t uninstall chromium. Help?

    • Hi Shareena Baurhoo
      You have to run Spyhunter and it will take care of the rest. You don’t have to go through the guide.
