Hi! So I got a few viruses on my computer a couple of weeks ago. They were really bad and would crash my computer to blue screen on start up. I got rid of most of them using IObit and Malwarebytes. I also did a system restore on my C Drive when I got tired of trying to mess with the viruses. The system restore worked like a charm on getting full capabilities back to my computer but my browser was on my F drive since that is my primary storage drive.
Every time I open up my browser or open up a new tab it will go to Secure-surf.net. It will also have a alternative search bar that redirects you to play-bar.org. I have deleted and reinstalled Chrome. I have wiped out the data in AppData that had anything to do with browsers and/or I didn't recognize. I have tried Malwarebytes Ad-ware removal and scanned with Malwarebytes and IObit, multiple times. I really don't know where this virus is hiding and it is quite annoying to deal with because it sometimes redirects me to that page when I open up a new link. It also places three extra ads on my Google searches that aren't Google ads.
Any tips on getting this virus off my computer?

Just to clarify, I only system restored my C Drive. I did not have system restore set up for my F drive or I would have restored that as well.
