Must have Google Chrome Extension

It appears that certain Extensions for the Google Chrome browser have been bought by evil type hoodlams who have used the trusted Extension to foist adware, malware and tracking codes. on users.

This is a bad thing.

Using Google Chrome, go to the Chrome Web Store and install the (free) Extension Shield for Chrome.

This will offer a measure of protection for Chrome until the issue is addressed in a future version.
