This only happens when i open my browser and go to any page. 
I click a link and the tab goes to that page, but another tab opens with bad stuff,
Does not matter what page I go to, it seems to HiJack clicks in Google Chrome.
I have BitDefender anti-virus, ran CCClaner, ran Advanced System care PRO, ran SpyBot S&D, 
ran AntiMalwareBytes - all show system as clean, no threats found, etc.  
Yet Google Chrome appears to be hijacked, when i click in the browser.  
Only happens on one computer, my desktop. 
I went to use IE Browser, which i never use, to see if it is only Google Chrome, it is only Google Chrome.

I believe that I fixed the problem.  
For grins (NOT) I decided to check EXTensions, since it was only happening with one browser.

never saw this type of malware, before,but there was an errant, or whatt appeared to errant EXTension, one I did not recognize apart from the 4 that I only have installed.  I deleted it, and the problem appears to be vanquished!
