Even if it was only Chrome, having fully uninstalled it with Revo Uninstaller, and reinstalled it, I would say that a windows reinstall was still the best thing. I didn't try explicitly without the Avast Block, but still, firefox is not working, chrome is not working, ping is not working, tracert is not working. Other PCs don't have problems. I would say that it's not a Chrome only problem, without needing more evidence.

Yes, sorry, i thought that, having identified the precise kind of ransomware, it was implicit that I did run a scan. I did a full scan on reboot with Avast, did a full scan with YAC and Microsoft Security Essentials.

Just to put things in context, (and it's my fault for not saying so) I'm a programmer and I consider myself a somewhat experienced user with some 20 years of PC usage, some of which spent providing tech assistance. Plus, being a Web Developer I know some about Chrome and browsers.

No, I didn't try, but as I said, with firefox the behavior is even more erratic, so it's more difficult to test. Should we move this to chat?

@Arjan Yes, I thought the same about firefox.IE, at least with twitch, was ok.First thing I did was remove all the extensions and reinstall chrome.

@Arjan Ah, sorry for the misunderstanding. I was sure it was a ransomware because the page i got redirected to was a fake police (Carabinieri, actually) page asking me to pay a fine. (screenshot not mine) : i61.tinypic.com/k4gvtk.jpg

an Italian website said that the virus hits the router, but I don't think that's possible, as I didn't have any problem with the other pc (with Ubuntu) even while using chrome.

@Arjan it's in the system for sure, but it's quite hard to eradicate. Going to reinstall today.No, chrome doesn't give any warning, just a 324, but I'm sure it's because of the antivirus. The problem with finding it out was because of the erratic behavior.

well, now when it redirects me, it's redirecting to law-enforcement-jjc.s1.lv/js which makes me think more of a virus. Still, can't find any info and my av is drawing blanks....
