Backup your data on an external drive, wipe your hard drive and reinstall your OS. That's the only way to be sure to get rid of windows malware.

Also, I highly suggest you don't post the link here that might lead to somethin malicious. Someone might accidentally click it you know.

Isn't there a way to restore your computer back to factory settings? That's my only suggestion. I really hope you back up your important files because you will lose them as you are taking your computer back to the day you first bought it. However, don't insert your flash drive or whatever you use to backup your files if your computer is already infected.

It might have installed a Chrome extension, which could potentially add things to text boxes when you don't want them to.
