How to delete extension jhfhkgkmljpbkafmkljgfmaokgcaiiee?

Posted 09 May 2015 - 05:49 PM

AdwCleaner program finds the extension: jhfhkgkmljpbkafmkljgfmaokgcaiiee in User Data \ Default \ Secure Preferences for Google Chrome. Is a problem or it is a normal?
After deleting this extension by AdwCleaner program it appears again immediately after the computer restarts. How to delete this extension forever?

A brief Google search for that extension ID suggests that it is a browser exploit called "Television Fanatic Toolbar", designed to replace your browser start-up page, hijack your search results and perhaps even mess with the browser's DNS.

Removing the Chrome extension is not enough, if the malware is installed onto your system. You'd have to remove the malware also, or it'll just install the extension again and again. If your current AV can't deal with the root cause, try using something else. I usually get good results from Malwarebytes and/or SpyBot.
