Not sure if this was the correct category but I assume I have a chrome redirect virus. When I open a new tab it sends me to random websites. I've used all of the virus scans listed here. I've also used my computer virus scan as well as the chrome system scan. Some of the scans found unwanted files that were quarantined but when I open my browser and click a new tab it still does it. I also looked at my extensions and program files and didn't see anything out of normal.
