A "Recommended for You" popup shows up in Chrome. How do I get rid of it? pubshops 4/11/12 5:53 AM
A "Recommended for You" popup shows up in Chrome. It is at the lower right corner. It is so annoying that I will have to stop using Chrome, which I love, if I can't get rid of it. How do I get rid of this thing? Better Popup Blocker does not block it.

thanks

Disable one by one the Chrome extension you use. (one of the installed Chrome extension can cause this problem, also please provide here the name of that extension)

I fond that the extension "New Tab Redirect!" was causing the problem for me:

I have the same problem. Have disabled all extensions and it still persists. In the same boat as you in that I'm on the cusp of switching back to Firefox if I can't figure this out.

Try to create a new chrome profile, and move you bookmarks.

Check what recent app/program you have installed on you computer. Can be a software that do this (and not inside Google Chrome)
Do a spyware/malware scan with example Spybot search and destroy

No new software that I am aware of and I run Spybot 2-3 daily. I am finding tracking cookies but Im unsure how to make them go away...for good. When I remove them with Spybot they come back when I close and re-open Chrome.

If you receive that popup, can you right click on it? and click "inspect element". (to know where it load the popup file)

You got malware on you computer. (use official code and files from Google Analytics)

Do this:
1. Run a decent Mbam scan
2. Replace Hosts file
3. Create again for sure a new Chrome profile
4. Clean you Windows Temp:
    cmd->%temp% ,delete all
