Chrome ready to take revenge against settings hijackers

Now the main complaint against Google in its chrome browser that having your settings hijacked. Google now ready to take revenge against it. Google first realised the problem in august. Company introduced a reset browser settings button on the setting page. But it was not enough.

To overcome this problem, Chrome will ask windows users via a pop-up automatically, if they want to reset their settings when it detects, it possibly be changed without their permissions. It will be disabled each and every extensions, themes and Apps they have installed. It never uninstall them, so user could go back and can manually revive them one at a time if they wish.

Linus Upson , vice president of engineering for chrome, give more combative rejoinder in case of setting changes, describing in a blog post as “especially pernicious” hijackers, leave behind hidden processes those are designed to hijack user’s browser again after a short time

He wrote, “To make sure the reset option reaches everyone who might need it, Chrome will be prompting Windows users whose settings appear to have been changed if they’d like to restore their browser settings back to factory default,”
Google didn’t quickly respond to a commentary request. We will amend this story when we hear back.
