I just updated Chrome Browser

a minute ago to Version 57.0.2987.110 (64-bit) on my desktop.
I thought I was going crazy , as I was doing some reading here in the forums and the page would just change sizes all the sudden !

So, I would change the magnification back to %125 and bang It happened again and again lol .
Anyway I closed everything and went on the menu under " Help " , than clicked on " About " and Chrome updated and all is well again

move this post as I found out shortly after the update that the magnification issue still existed .
The problem was malware called whatsapp that I got from a failed download while following a thread involving whatsapp . I can't find it though .

Somehow even after a failed download ( no installs by the way ) I found it in my Programs and Features folder . I uninstalled it using it's own uninstaller , rebooted , than went into my Windows Explorer and found no files on my c/drive after scan . I searched " this computer " also.

I scanned with SAS and Ccleaner and find no trace .

Now After removing the malware the Chrome Browser isn't changing magnification and is perfect.

The way I think I realized this was Malware is this was happening with FF .
