Hi there, got a little problem here that I hope you guys might be able to help me out with. For the past few days I've been getting random (and very rarely, truth be told) redirections to a website called utrack.pw. It happens very rarely, usually when opening a new tab (rarely when navigating within an existing tab) such as from a bookmark or from an existing tab. There is usually a delay between the opening of a new tab and the redirection, e.g. on Youtube it loads up a second or so of the video before redirecting me to the ads. I also believe it to be responsible for occasional freezing of my computer, which happens without rhyme or reason and only within the timeframe for the redirections.
Here is a puu.sh screenshot to a sample of the page: http://puu.sh/jtwGO/f933e3f3fa.jpg
I've got no real clue how this got onto my system, and relatively thorough Google searches have been turning up virtually nothing (http://puu.sh/juEEc/161e2daa35.png), leading me to believe this is a fairly recent development. I've run thorough scans with Malwarebytes and Microsoft Defender, both of which turn up nothing.
Oh, I'm on Windows 10.
Note: utrack.pw is not the only site I have been redirected to, although it is by far the most prominent. Out of the roughly 10 redirections I've had, 9 of them were to utrack.pw, and one was to some website I don't recall off the top of my head, since I killed the window pretty much straight away.
So... uh... help, please?
Edit: More info. This problem has been mostly on Google Chrome, both in normal and in incognito modes. Since it happens so sporadically, I haven't had the chance to reproduce the redirections on the three other browsers I have but rarely use: Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge. Will update if I do.
Second Edit: Was surfing as usual on Firefox and got redirected. So it's there as well.
Third Edit: Redirected to a third website: MusicBoxNewTab.com (http://puu.sh/juJlF/f2640bf7ba.png) This one came when surfing through Skyrim mods on the Nexus website. Seems to be a fairly typical adware, if only I can root it out.
Fourth Edit: Yet another redirection website. Interesting. It was pretty much only utrack.pw before, but now I'm getting a bunch of different sites. This next one was spaces.slimspots.com, which then further redirected me to onlineprizedraws-aussie.com. Starting to get annoying.
Fifth Edit: Got the one I mentioned earlier as being unable to recall: ilividnewtab.com/ As with the fourth edit, this was a double redirect: First a redirection to searchpeak.com, which then redirected me to ilividnewtab.com. If you're wondering why I'm listing all these sites out, I'm hoping that other people with the same problem encountering the same sites would be able to find this topic. =D
Sixth Edit: In what may or may not be related, I've also been getting strange popups in Japanese on various Wikia websites. Here's a sample image: http://puu.sh/juLRv/eaabec6049.png Roughly translated, it means "This community is waiting for the input of fans like you!" or so I'd guess. The link translates to "Let's try and edit the page =>" and actually does lead to the edit function for the page. It's really strange though, because the website in that screenshot was linked to me by a friend of mine who just accessed it and didn't receive the popup, while I did. Googling the text:
"このコミュニティは貴方の様なファンの投稿を求めています! " shows me that random Wikia pages have it in their pages as well (http://puu.sh/juPn1/28588a8b72.png). Not sure if this is related to the previous issues though.
