bold textI cannot find this malware in the settings anywhere, I assume it hides itself very thoroughly- I have tried the usual tricks, looking in extensions and add ons. There are a number of solutions if you google it but they all seem to be useless or want you to pay for various malware removers- which probably dont work. Any help much appreciated .

You will have to do a search online on how to remove this malware and read the instructions on how to remove it. There are probably non paying ways to do it you need to not click the first links and scroll through to find it. Otherwise you will have to take to computer shop to remove this.
