My computer is infected with a very strange acting virus. It takes me to random web sites (including porn sites/adult videos) and opens videos and pages. It conducts searches and takes me to all these unwanted sites and my computer's performance is significantly affected. A lot of the time I can't even close those videos or pages. The funny thing is I have had the same exact issue with my phone (including browser and youtube apps) and tablet a while ago. I am thinking a web site that I visited from all these devices caused this. But I have no idea how to find or fix it. I even reset my computer to factory settings and it stopped acting like that a few times. But I have the same issue over and over. I don't know what software or web site is causing this. I don't listen to music on the net (except for youtube) and I never visit any porn sites or watch any content like that. I do watch videos/documentaries/movies from various pages though. I am not sure if any one of those is causing this.


Any advice would be appreciated. I have Norton installed on my computer. Thanks.
