AVG does not find popups to adds for Dish network and such on random actions in chrome. It's never the same site. I updated AVG in case it wasn't updated and did a full system scan. Nothing found but a couple tracking cookies.

So what now? Does AVG not find stuff in chrome? Is there some better virus software that will?

@ Entropy73

Are you actually referring to the Google Chrome Redirect Virus?.. No AV product is capable of providing you with 100% protection although AVG are always working 24/7. This is the standard forum Announcement post link How To Handle Infection Suspicion? which actually covers this type of issue.

I have the Chrome/Google Virus.

I am running Windows 7 - AVG 2013 - update and scan everynight.
AVG has not found the virus OR I told AVG the program is safe (if you know what I mean)

Everyday I open Chrome to my Yahoo home page. When I click on a news story I get redirected to one of several webpages - Quickbids seems to be the favorite.

I can locate/open the HOST file and remove the (additional) IP address.
This "hides" the issue until I reboot.

Any ideas?

Thanks
