Hello, I need some help to remove this ProductManualsFinder toolbar by MyWay from my Google Chrome. Several days ago, I accidentally install this tool bar into Chrome when I visit a website. Since then I’ve tried many times to uninstall this toolbar from my Chrome, but nothing worked. I even run my security tool to make a full scanning, but nothing malicious is found. But I always see some strange pop-ups, fake security message or flash pictures coming from the webpage I visited even though the website is legitimate. Before I got this toolbar, I didn’t see any pop-ups when browsing webpages. So I believe all these pop-ups should result from this nasty toolbar. Please help me!
