Web Browser adverts opening new tab

  Dirty Dick 09:39 12 Nov 2014

I'm running Windows 7 with Google Chrome as my default browser.

Extra tabs keep opening with adverts eg Ladbrokes etc.

I've run malware bytes, Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool, and my antivirus ESET NOD32 hasn't picked anything up.

I haven't made any changes anywhere

How can I stop this happening?

Dick, AdwCleaner is an effective removal tool for pests like yours. You can get it from here.

Note that it can sometimes be a tad aggressive so you may want to check what it's found and untick anything that you want to keep before clicking the "Clean" button.
