User Query : Preventing a PC from opening random websites

by September 21, 2015 0 comments

I have Google Chrome set as my default browser. Now the problem is that when I don’t touch my computer for about 10+ minutes, it will open Chrome and send me to a page with a virus on it. Obviously I don’t touch anything on the page so I don’t get any viruses, but it’s incredibly annoying. I’ve downloaded a page-blocking app so that I can block the pages it sends me to, but it rarely sends me to the same page twice. I have Norton 360 virus protection and it says there aren’t any viruses on my computer. Please suggest.

There is a simple solution. Just go to the “Control Panel” and then “Programs”. Every browser supports extensions, your browser also has some extensions which are affecting your PC. Delete the ones you are not sure about, then download Malwarebytes and run it. It should pick up most browser hijackers and successfully remove them.
