Stop from Redirecting Users to Ad Site

‘Problem: A random ad will open in a new tab in my chrome browser without warning. It links to sites like and, but right before it opens, it opens a site with URL: http://7.rotator.wig...9059&kw=&click=’

‘I have exactly the same problem. Caught it a few days ago, probably while roaming the internet. I ran various scanners to no avail. The "7 dot rotator dot wigetmedia dot com" address pop-ups at around 4:30 pm (Eastern time) if Chrome is opened at that time. If not opened, it pop-ups when opening Chrome. Today, I installed Firefox and let it running, while Chrome was closed. Firefox got the "call" from that address. In Windows' Task scheduler, it is GoogleUpdate.exe that is scheduled at around that time.’
