  1. Boa tarde, estou com problemas no meu Google Chrome, ja fiz tudo o descrito acima inclusive removi dos registros, mas não consigo eliminar esta praga chamada chromesearch.club ele esta encalacrado no “mecanismos de pesquisa padrão” e não permite que eu retire ele do modo “padrão” e nem o exclua como faço para me livrar?

    • Em primeiro lugar, execute instruções para o prompt de comando e, em seguida, configure o Google como mecanismo de busca padrão e, depois disso, remova chromesearch.club

    • O meu estava assim e, após eu fazer a parte do Prompt de Comando, eu consegui alterar o buscador nas configurações do Chrome
