I have Google Chrome. I notice today that ads are opening up randomly in new tabs. Any ideas why this is happening?

No idea, but whenever I see weird computer behavior, I run a virus/malware checker or three to make sure my computer hasn't been compromised. The ones I use are Avast (on all the time), Spybot, and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.

I think it was an ad on a site I regularly visit as the only time I notice the "pop tab" was when I opened that page.
