How to remove “RandomPrice” Extension

Few days ago, my browser started to pop-up various advertisements. It also keeps on redirecting to various sites, mostly ad-driven pages. I run scans like adaware and malwarebytes but both come empty and clear my computer of any infection. So, I did manual check and found out that RandomPrice extension is present.

I just recalled that this is a familiar name. It appears when I am installing a video player. Though, I still remember that I have excluded during the install process. How and why does RandomPrice still gets into the computer is just like a virus attack. I never allowed it but it still manages to get through.

About the RandomPrice extension, I have deleted it but after a few restarts, it comes back and it seems that there is no other way to remove it. If there is anyone on this forum who experienced the same issue with the one I have, kindly share your procedures in removing the RandomPrice extension from the browser.

Thanks,
Zeedee

    Being a nasty adware program, RandomPrice generally enters user computer as a malicious code attached with free software or plugin. Being a smart adware plugin, this extension generally gets installed in every browser available and constantly sends pop up ads, messages to the user. In order to remove this adware, firstly you need to remove unwanted plugin/extension from web browser. Secondly, set your DNS as public DNS in Google (8.8.8.8). Thirdly unhide all hidden files and remove suspicious ones. Fourthly remove files associated with RandomPrice. When this is done perform complete memory/registry scan with security software like Norton, Immunet Antivirus, Bitdefender Antivirus, Malwarebytes, Bitdefender etc. Hope this will solve the issue.
