URL redirects no malware detected

On my computer with norton security installed I'm getting random URL redirects on a large number of websites including my website, Google, support.norton.com, Bing, microsoft's main page, YouTube all of them have one thing in common they open a new tab and give a redirect to a page designed for advertising. On top of that I have run Norton Power eraser today and guess what 30 seconds after I open Microsoft Edge a new tab opens while I'm visiting your website from a link found in your antivirus product. One of those websites that the redirects lead to appears to be a webpage designed to trick people into giving them their emails by using an AI that impersonates a 31 year old female in who then asks them to create an account after a while. That particular website is liable to be put under charges because they have a video of a female who is wearing clothing that look like it would be used in a sex club if the movies are correct in how they show them and I hit the cancel button on the JavaScript witch means that they didn't have my consent in fact they were told no and showing that auto play video without consent is a punishable offence in my country due to the sexual nature of the video.

Hi, and welcome. Try running Malwarebytes Free Edition, which may help to pick up the redirects you're experiencing.

Windows 10 X64 Creators Update Norton Security with Backup----Current

Also you can try installing an ad blocker in your browsers. Often these redirects come from malicious coded ads on the web sites.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Identity Safe data.
