I recently started writing automated test programs with Selenium. In the program, I am opening a Web site using a chromedriver object. My computer somehow got "infected" with a program/tool called "Wise Convert". After my Web page opens, I get a box telling me that I have successfully installed "Wise Convert".

How do I get rid of this?

What tools have you tried to remove it? – Ramhound Dec 6 '12 at 16:16

It's a toolbar that converts image formats to PDF.

In Chrome, go to chrome://extensions find Wise Convert in the list. Click uninstall or disable.

I didn't quite ask my question right, sorry. You are right. It is a toolbar and once it is displayed, I can uninstall it as mentioned above. It keeps on getting re-installed. When I open a Web page manually, this toolbar does not get "attached". It is only when I open a Web page using chromedriver it gets attached. In order to try and remove it, I have (1) Run a full scan of Kaspersky Anti Virus program (2) Run BitDefender Neither found any problems/infections. Thanks. – V Chandrasekhar Dec 6 '12 at 17:06
Check out Other Deployment Options. It sounds like you have an external extension installed on your machine, which is storing a key in the registry. – Ian Atkin Dec 6 '12 at 17:12
Your linked helped. Removing it from the registry worked. Thank you! – V Chandrasekhar Dec 6 '12 at 18:44
You're welcome. – Ian Atkin Dec 6 '12 at 19:12
We also had to remove a crx file at AppData/Local along with about a hundred folders having the same name as the crx file. (It was a junk name like cqhjfsdyujkfduif.........crx.) When a friend helped me remove the registry entry, he noticed that it had this weird name (i.e., cqhjfsdyujkfduif.........). We searched the C drive for files named this and found the crx file and the folders. Thanks again for the help. – V Chandrasekhar Dec 6 '12 at 21:10
