Funny thing is that I recognize that domain. It's a domain that gives tutorials for rooting and flashing android devices.

My question still stands, once Malwarebytes expires do you think the web page will open on itself again?

Will do. On a side note, Malwarebytes gave me a shocking 22 web page blocks on 24th of April and 9 web page blocks on 25th of April. All of them from the same website with different ports. This is frustrating.

Sorry for double post, I've deactivated all my extensions (not removed, just deactivated) but Malwarebytes just gave me another web page blocks.

Is it happening only in one browser?

I think it's only happening in Chrome because I had it set as the default browser. Sorry for the late reply, but I've been waiting for the web pages to pop up but there wasn't any despite of the blocks from Malwarebyte. Thank you so much, I think my problem is solved.
