Every time I launch my PC google chrome automatically opens a page called bestprosoft.com. I have used several virus removing programs in order to remove it with nothing working.I have searched for solutions but everywhere just recommends another virus removing program. Any help is welcome.

Thanks, -Rhodri

Just to add. Windows defender detects the virus and says it has removed it. But every time I relaunch the problem occurs again and windows defender detects it again.

It's not a virus. It's malware. For that you need Malwarebytes Free version.
