    Can't remove 'Adware.akamaihd.net'


    Hello!
    today, I scanned my computer with Adware Removal Tool which flagged 'Adware.akamaihd.net ->> Browser: Chrome ->> C:\Users\NoureddinE\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Preferences'
    I clicked 'Clean' and then it repaired it, but when I scan again it flags it again.
    I also cleaned and reset the settings of Chrome, but nothing new.
