    Tabs redirecting in Chrome when I don't want them to


    I have tried:

    Malware bites
    Google software remover
    "Remove google redirection" from the Chrome store
    a chrome website blocker acquired from the Chrome store
    I've looked under control panel and can't see anything new that's been added in the last day or two, since this started happening.

    Nothing is making any difference at all.

    Strangely some sites seem to be more affected than others. I don't know if this is significant. How can I fix the problem?

    A bunch of random thoughts:


    Does IE operate normally ?

    What version of Chrome ? Latest updates ? Disable your add-ons/extensions to see the effect.

    Did you try to reset Chrome ? Or may try to uninstall/reinstall. Should not lose any data.

    Also, check the Chrome Forum.
