Pre:
I installed Daemon Tools Lite, and unfortunately it installed a bunch of programs with it.. I deleted about 3-4 programs which infected mostly my web browser (Chrome)
 
Problem:
When I open new tabs, random webpages open up (about 2-3) for sketchy websites like "you must upgrade/update chrome!" or "click here to win"  etc..
Currently running:
Windows 7 Home Premium
 
 
Tried:
  • I installed avast free and ran a full system scan with no avail. 
  • Checked programs to uninstall and nothing suspicious is listed
I'd rather not re-format my hard drive if possible. 
 
Edit** 
 
Looks like this happens only when I open a certain website... which when opened from other computers do not have ads.. 
 
For some reason this one website has adds injected into it and even when i  just click white space new tabs pop up.. Also lots of text are green highlighted with pop up ads when hovered over the text. 
Some ads say hosted by "keyplayer ads"  or something. 
 
 
Edit**2
 
Okay it looks like i figured it out. Looks like it was some simple sort of malware, but after performing everything on this website.. 

https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/how-to-remove-a-trojan-virus-worm-or-malware/

It helped a lot
Otherwise it was interesting that only one site i went too that i know is safe from other computers gave me a problem.

Thanks for your update.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
