Search.mo-cmf.com always pop-ups every time I open Google chrome browser. This is the first time I have encountered such a problem that locks Google chrome browser. I already did several anti-virus scans on the laptop but no threats were found. However, I have seen an unwanted plug-in installed on the browser. I removed it and the action has no effect in the website locking the internet browser. It seems that the unknown plug-in is not related to this problem. I also restarted my laptop then this website still came up. I don’t know what to do now. Any help or suggestion to remove this virus from my laptop will be highly appreciated.
