I'll preface this by saying that usually, I don't need extensive troubleshooting. I only ever come to forums for consultation, or providing consultation. But this has been something that has genuinely stumped me.
I've had this popup, it's ar.voicefive.com, it's a survey thing. Upon googling this it seems others have had this issue and it's a fairly common one. No antivirus or even adwcleaner would fix the problem, clearing cookies on literally anything would not fix the problem, and opting out on the website itself yields no results. The popups are simply blank white tabs with no other indication of what they are other than the title of the tab and the url bar. They don't happen often, once every 3-8 days. They also don't seem to eat any system resources, another oddity.
I once had this problem on my older laptop, which used to be my main computer. I would receive voicefive survey popups, and it happened once or twice and opting out on the voicefive website simply fixed the issue. I built a higher end PC back in June and once again the problem manifested itself around September. This time it was rather intrusive, intrusive to the point where I had advertisements for voicefive that would appear over advertisements in skype. However after opting out on the voicefive website the problem ceased, universally.
As of December 3rd, the problem came back again. This time not as intrusive, as it only shows as popups in chrome itself. But a lot more stubborn. No opting out will fix it, no scans, be them malwarebytes, adwcleaner, avast, avira, etc, will detect it. I'm tempted to reinstall chrome, as clearing my cache and cookies have not yielded any results. But other than that I have nothing, I am not even sure if it is a problem isolated to chrome, it's so infrequent that even though I haven't seen evidence of it anywhere else I do not know.
I absolutely need help with this, it's rather annoying and puts me a bit on edge when I might be tabbed out of a game for a blank white window proclaiming that it has in fact, a blank white window titled voicefive survey for me to view. I just want this garbage gone.
This is, I might add, the only problem I'm having.
