(I am new to the forum, so pardon any mistakes I have and will make...)

When I leave a Google Chrome tab open for a long time, a pop-up redirects the said tab to elsewhere. The message is along the lines of: 

 

The page at shuang11miandan.com says:

Congratulations!! 

You are today's lucky visitor, eligible to receive an Apple Product! 

 

and thus the page is redirected. It doesn't happen instantly when I open chrome or anything, it only occurs when I leave a tab unattended (yet open) for extended periods of time. I've tried scanning using Malwarebytes and Avast but they have not been able to detect anything.

Over time the computer has begun to lag even more, and redirects have increased, but to things saying that my flash player is outdated etc...

Help?

You can try getting the adblocker extension for chrome, it will block things like that.

Thanks, so far it's working quite well, no popups.
