|When I open Google Chrome, the browser does not load any pages, settings, or other menu items.|
For example, when I click on Settings, it just opens a new tab with the address bar reading "chrome://settings/", and the page is grey and nothing shows up.
If I try entering a website, nothing loads in the browser.
In addition, there are always new extensions being installed as well: WhiteSmokeNew, HDVidCodec, WebExp Enhanced, GoPhoto.it.
Also, when I open Chrome, Microsoft Security Essentials pops open a notification, saying that there is a potential threat on my PC. I go to remove the threat, which is detected as "Adware:Win32/BetterSurf"
I have tried restoring the computer to a date before chrome crashed, but it made no difference.
I've also tried opening webpages in Incognito mode, but still nothing loads.
