When I do a seach or click a link very often a page I didn't want pops up in a tab. Just for an instant I get the 188.8.131.52 URL, but I haven't been able to find anything about this at whois. This happens so frequently that I have got in the habit of looking at the title bar and "Xing out" strange pages before they completly load. (It saves the the trouble of waiting for it to load all the way.) The strange thing is that none of the pages that load are porn or gambling or anything. The last one -- when I was coming here to bleepingcomputer -- was Kanoodle.
None of my AV softwre picks up anything, but Malwarebytes will not connect for definition downloads.
If anyone has an idea bout this please let me know. I notice that I'm not the only one suffering this problem.
