Browser problems – Chrome V Explorer

308528_10151454998758214_958498520_nJust recently, something infiltrated my Google Chrome and caused all manner of havoc. Adverts & unwanted surveys popping up all over!  My usual Pop-up blocker couldn’t stop them so I downloaded Chrome’s own adblocker and Malwarebytes which found over 60 items that were causing problems. Having removed all the nasties discovered by Malwarebytes, I went back to my webpages & found that even then it had not solved the problem 😦 The Adblocker was showing lots of things being blocked but the surveys & adverts were still popping up.  I’ve been into Chrome’s settings & removed anything extensions added by a third party and even that hasn’t helped.  So I’ve gone back to Internet Explorer and am surprised to say that it’s so much better than it used to be! It’s much quicker and has had lots of improvements which has made it a lot easier to go back to it.  One thing that’s really annoying me is the lack of opportunity to transfer my favourites from Google Chrome to Explorer!  It can be done the other way round so why not this way?
I am now working my way through my favourites on Chrome and having to open each page in Explorer to save it to favourites! What a long winded way to go about things!  If anyone knows a better or easier way to do this I would love to know how!
Oh well, back to it!
