    Unwanted addition to Chrome

    I keep getting an extra space/s on web pages with Chrome.

    The space has 'Ad by DocToConverter' on it. The space doesn't contain any content and is blank white space of varying size.
    I may have got rid of part of this pest as I have scanned with MalWareBytes ( registered copy).

    Hopefully some one can help me clean this out.

    See if you have some unknown extension installed in Chrome, especially if it's a "Installed by enterprise policy" extension. If it is have a look here for options for removal.

    Thanks for the link FUN - I deleted a number of free utilty apps that I had thoughtlessly installed in the past. It appears to have done the trick. I don't have the text or blank space at the top of this page anymore but I can't get rid of the Extension in the Chrome list itself.

    You could see if AdwCleaner can do that for you.
