Recently, I did a wipe using DBAN and reinstalled my windows 7 Pro and included Google Chrome as my browser. I installed Microsoft Security Essentials as my virus protection, Adobe Flash Player & Java  of  the latest versions.  Navigating to the Draft Kings website, and bam! I am hit with a popup saying something about a men's site and saw that there was a collection of round frames including female within them and quickly determined that it is a porno site and didn't bother to click any further. I go out of that by xing out and restarting my computer. In navigating to other sites, I was hit with popups that say my Flash Player needs to be upgraded and ran into the same thing saying my Java is outdated. Just before I opted to write this, I was greeted with a popup that amounted to a threat to not shut down my computer and to call a certain number, etc. I did get out of that too by xing out and restarting. Can anybody tell me why all o f this is happening,. Thanks for any input.
