Question Google Chrome?

How do I stop Chrome from opening new pages when I open web sites? Also have some kind of stupid advertisement that opens in the lower right part of the screen. I've been using Firefox but it crashed.

Just to the right of the address bar, you should see 3 vertical dots. Click that and access the settings menu. You can probably fix your problem in there.

You are going to need to remove the virus to stop all of that.

Sounds like you need to turn on or download a popup blocker

Assuming you don't have a virus, you need an Ad Blocker. They make an addon for Chrome. It even stops ad banners at the top of pages.

According to my anti-virus program I don't have one. Sometimes when I click on something, a new page comes up usually with some kind of game web site. I had this happen with Firefox a couple of years ago but I've forgot what I did to stop it. I have the pop up blocker turned on.

Check your list of plugins in your settings, you may have downloaded one unintentionally.
