These advertisements are usually to help sponsor/help continue to run the
site, I suggest you just bare with it and let the advertisement run its course.

Could you also take a screenshot so I have a better idea of what you're talking about?

If you feel you are infected though, I cannot give you any further advice.

im not infected

and usually it has a skip this ad button so that you can go back to browsing the site and it doesn't come back
but some of them now don't have the skip button so you can never view the site

this is the site regularly


and then it fades white and i see this


and then it turns into this
