    Hello and welcome Keiferino.

    Before we sent you to the malware removal forum, try to reset Chrome. Go to the three vertical dots in the upper right corner.
    Click on Settings.
    Click on the three horizontal bars with the words Settings in the upper left corner.
    Click on Advanced.
    Click on Reset and and Clean up.
    Click on Reset settings to their original defaults.
    Read the notice and click on Reset settings.

    See if that works.

    If not, post in our Malware Removal forum at https://computerhelpforums.com/forums/malware-removal-help.59/

    Read the instructions at https://computerhelpforums.com/threads/preparation-for-malware-removal-help-all-windows-os.41927/ and posts the logs files.
