I was minding my own business when suddenly a webpage opened in Chrome to a french website called NoelShack. I quickly closed it but I later decided to go back and see what it was. I only remembered the name, because the entry was deleted from Chrome's history like nothing happened. It doesn't seem to be anything at all, but this is still highly suspicious.


I scanned my computer with the following:

- Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

- Avast

- Malwarebytes Anti-rootkit

- Adwcleaner


Nothing. I never saw or heard of this website before and these things don't just happen. My mouse cursor also shows background processes sporadically, even though there's no update for anything being downloaded. Please help, I think this might be one very well hidden malware.

By the way, I use Windows 7, and it's licensed.
