I have installed Windows 7 again on my laptop with Chrome as browser. The problem is that on different websites I visit, the actual images of the website get replaced with out of context images. It happens quite often. Is it some virus? How can I remove it?

  • This question is vague and too broad. Which images do get replaced with what? Do you own the network? Maybe there's a pattern? Maybe you installed some adware stuff? Maybe maybe maybe...

  • @HamZa The original images that the website has used get replaced with some random images. However, if I refresh the same page then sometimes the original images appear.

Check on another device to see if the same behaviour occurs.

I don't believe removal of malware is the scope of this forum. However, I'd recommend you do an virus scan, check your BHOs and Addins on your browser.

  • This happens on all devices in same LAN. I have used virus scan but it detected no virus.

  • Interesting, could you turn off your devices which you may think be infected then use your phone to do it.

  • Try resetting your router to clear any virus / malware settings.You may need to ask your ISP for your internet connection information after you do this
