Virus/Malware - Search Engage / Search Solutions Extension Hijack
I've run Malware Bytes , CCleaner, StopZilla, Chrome Clean Up Tool, SpyHunter, and nothing is removing this extension from my browser . I even looked into "Uninstall Program" incase some program was installed without my permission, and nothing on the list is out of the ordinary.
this was installed without my permission, and even in the Google Store, this extension is being reported as malware
