Am in Nigeria. A website called Nairabet.com (an online betting site) continually hi-jacks my system. I am looking at something on my browser, and suddenly the Nairabet page takes over. How can I stop this happening?
I use Google Chrome. OS Windows 8.1

Hello

Use a secured Anti-Virus software to secure your website. I would suggest you to use Avast! antivirus, it will protect you from Spam websites (which contain virus or other kind of stuff) also.

To get free 1 year subscription, refer this URL: http://www.avast.com/registration-free-antivirus.php

Thanks

Try a FULL scan from a good anti-malware program like MalwareBytes AntiMalware...

Download here:

You can also use a good anti-virus scan like:

(Both of these are FREEware programs...)

I strongly recommend that you use Firefox as your browser.
That in itself will make a big difference.

Then add the free Noscript addon.
When you go to a website for the first time you have to allow it.
Then that website will run in a limited manner with many of the adverts blocked.
You can temporarily allow all elements of a webpage if you need to.

The main thing is ... ditch Google Chrome!
