Remove Chrome_Help virus

How to remove Chrome_Help? Chrome_Help is an add-on in the browser, also known as a browser hijacker. Chrome_Help modifies settings in the browser and redirects the home page and search engine to unwanted ads.

Besides Chrome_Help modifying the browser, Chrome_Help also displays ads on different websites while using the browser. You will recognize these ads as pop-ups. These pop-ups promoted by Chrome_Help try to trick you into making online purchases or installing unwanted software.

The sole purpose of Chrome_Help is to generate revenue by displaying online ads and tricking the victim into clicking on them.

In most cases, Chrome_Help is a browser extension. You can find this browser extension in the extension settings in your browser. However, it also happens that it is a software application that you installed through a rogue website.

Use this step-by-step instruction to remove Chrome_Help and other malware from your PC. By following this instruction, you will be sure that your computer is free of malware, and malware infections will be stopped in the future.
