have done multiple scans with malwarebytes anti malware(free)

 

and adwcleaner. 

 

it appears to happen randomly, and does not appear to be tied to any google extension.  Please help me with diagnosis and removal. 

 

 

w8.1 x64 

 

google chrome

 

8G ram

 

 

edit it has now affected my search engine preference. instead of going to google, (which is my preference in chrome) it goes to bing.  also..going to this site seems to trigger the redirect(ie if i type bleeping computer in the omni bar and hit enter, i get the redirect to canadaaltax)

We are going to need to get a deeper look. Please follow this Preparation Guide, do steps 6,7 and 8 and post in a new topic.
Let me know if all went well.
