Default PPrIceCHoop and SaVMasss

I can't seem to remove these two from my browser (google chrome), despite using ADWCleaner and Malwarebytes, I even tried resetting my browser setting.

Does anyone know how to remove these two?

Welcome to the forum.

I think you meant PriceChop, which is a malware. You spelt it wrong. Still don't know what the second one is. Please use proper spellings if you want people to be able to help you.

Anyways, it looks like your system is infected. Would be better to post on BleepingComputer forum, where experts will guide you.

For future reference, it is wise to install the free version of the excellent WinPatrol.

http://www.winpatrol.com/

WinPatrol with provide an alert when browser addons are about to be installed, or some other changes made to your system settings. This gives the opportunity to block these before they get installed, rather than having to remove them later which is always a more difficult exercise.

FYI Comodo Anti-Virus does this and sandboxing along with AV protection.
