i posted here last week. did not get help for 3 days, posted in the "3 days" forum and was advised to start a new topic.
here it is
have done multiple scans with malwarebytes anti malware(free)
it appears to happen randomly, and does not appear to be tied to any google extension. Please help me with diagnosis and removal.
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)
