Chrome opens random advert tabs.  Tried malwarebytes and a few other programs but they can't seem to find anything that's causing this annoying issue.  Please, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello there, 

 

You can start solving this issue by removing suspicious software from your system. This may include toolbars or browser extensions. To remove unwanted programs from Windows please follow the steps in this link:http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows/uninstall-change-program

 

Furthermore resetting all browsers and disabling their add-ons could help. 

 

I would also recommend installing "Adblock plus" in order to eliminate all the popup's and ads from your browsers. https://adblockplus.org/

 

Hope this helps!

Hi-

 

Thanks for the suggestions.

 

I went through all my software, everything looks as it should.

 

I removed most of the add-ons, only kept a few that I've always used, pre-advert tab issue

 

I already have Adblock Plus installed.

 

I still get those annoying ad tabs.  Is there anything else I can try?
