It's very easy to infect our browser with all kinds of malware. I'm sure that, at some point, everyone has experienced the problems with the useless toolbars in the browsers. Remember Delta toolbar, or Conduit toolbar? They're often included within a free application, and you can even voluntarily download and install them!!! (don't try it).
Fortunately, Google has released a Beta version of their 'Software removal tool'. What this tool do is basically 'reset' your Google Chrome browser, and it leaves it clean of malware. Of course, this is just a Beta version of the tool, but I think it's a great idea that could be implemented for Firefox too. However, now I'll show how to use this tool to remove some malware from my own Chrome browser. I infected it with the Conduit toolbar:
Now, I'll use the Google Software removal tool. You can download it here. Just download it and place it somewhere you know.
Now, just run it. It will scan the computer looking for malware. Once it finishes, it will show the results. In my case:
Click 'Remove suspicious program'. After a few seconds, you'll see this:
Click Restart and the computer will reboot and that's it. Simple, right? Of course, you cannot rely on this tool to fully protect your computer, but it's a simple and easy-to-use tool to get rid of problems in a simple way. The interesting thing is that the tool also helped with other browsers, like Internet Explorer 11. Give it a try, it won't disappoint you!
