I keep getting a Script:SNH-gen [Adw] Threat pop-up on Avast


This only started happening yesterday and only comes up when I do a google search via Chrome’s URL bar. [Here is the Imgur to the threat alert.](https://imgur.com/a/4cUTyX4) I’ve done a full virus system scan, boot scan and hasn’t come up with anything (I’m aware it’s not technically referring to a file on my computer), but I thought I’d better be safe. I haven’t done a safemode scan yet but will do soon. Any ideas?

It appears chrome may have been infected in some way, probably modified by a previous infection. I would recommend using an uninstall tool like geek or revo and uninstalling it, then reinstall chrome and see if it stops.
