I am using Google chrome browser for internet surfing.
The problem is when I click any where on a page, a new tab opens showing some advertise and I have to close that tab. This happening very frequently.
Pl help me to get out of it.
Thanks.

If the problem is not cured by the add blocker...

Then you may have what's called a browser hijacker. This is a malware, which redirects your clicks to a different web page (usually an advertisement).

Run an antivirus program. Be careful you don't download from a website that installs more malware on your computer.

When I got a browser hijacker on my Windows XP machine, it was so troublesome, that I had to reformat and re-install everything.
