Can anyone help with this problem please? A couple of weeks ago I downloaded sopcast and something called ilivid that I needed to run sopcast. Everything was great, I watched the match with very few problems, but the next day when I logged on (I use chrome as my browser) there was a prompt and I stupidly clicked yes without thinking. I've only mentioned sopcast because that was the only thing I had downloaded, it may have nothing to do with the problem.
Preamble over, ever since I clicked yes, the address of every site I visit is prefixed with:
"a bookmarked page shape" chrome://newtabhttp//page address
The only site that doesn't have this prefix is twitter and that has a padlock shape before the page address.
The problem that I have, and I assume it must be related is that ever since it's messing my internet usage up, for example, I cannot access the offal at all, unless it's through twitter links, and if I try to navigate off the linked page, I either get the different page options as headers and no detail underneath or just a white page.
And worse still, and the most frustrating, is that quite often I can't read threads on here, if I click on a thread from the front page, I see the top of the last page of the thread but cannot move down, or go back a page (or to any page), or do anything. The page seems to be locked, and I can't navigate out of it, so I have to close the tab and log on again. And it keeps happening. I've tried accessing threads from the first post, sometimes that works but not always. There doesn't seem to be a pattern to it. I've tried deleting my browsing history but that didn't help. I ran a full system scan but got no bad results. Have I got myself another virus
Or am I being incredibly thick (fingers crossed I am!) Can anyone suggest a solution? Bear in mind, I am the equivalent of a doughnut when it comes to techy stuff please!
This is the address that I see for this post:
