How to change Chrome home page:
https://support.google.com/chrome/a...

We need to know what you downloaded, as requested in #1. This is likely to be the work of malware. It would be a good idea to run these two programs which are good at dealing with browser malware:

AdwCleaner:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...
(blue Download button near top - not anything else on the page).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run the program. Use the "Scan" button, followed by the "Cleaning" button.

Junkware Removal Tool (JRT)
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...
(blue Download button near top - not anything else on the page).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run JRT. It might appear to have stopped at times or flash the screen but sit tight until it has finished.

If they find anything please copy/paste the logs on here, as further attention will be required.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
