I seem to be having some troubles here. The short version of the problem is, when I go to a site that has video, for instance youtube, or anywhere with say, animated graphics and the like, Chrome will get taken over by a couple of popups wanting me to install some sort of video or media players.

I have scanned with all sorts of a variety of malware scanners, various web based anti virus programs, and it comes up all clean.
Leaves me scratching my head as to what could be hijacking the browser, and only the browser. There are no fake alerts in windows or anything like that.

I dont have the laptop in front of me to give the exact messages it gives. But it had the "ZeuS.Zbot.aoaq" come up in one of the tabs. This lead me to scan it with so many malware removal tools. But it dont always give that. Sometimes its just a generic popup for some video player installation or update.

As far as i know, the issue does not appear in IE, but the user does not have any interest in using that browser so this needs to be fixed. I am at a loss. Any help would be awesome!

My first instinct would be to just completely wipe Google Chrome from the system. This includes uninstalling it normally and going into %APPDATA% to search for remnants (and probably C:\Program Data too). Run CCleaner and its registry cleaner. Then reinstall it.
