I have no idea what you are talking about.  There is no audio and there is nothing on most of the pages in that video.

Basically, when I click on a link while browsing, it pops up to another page instead of the page I intended. these other pages are usually betting website, or ecommerce website.... I noticed it's from oneclickads.net

Your browser has been hijacked.  Check your add-ons and remove anything that you didn't put there.  Also close your browser and go to 'remove' programs see if there is there something there that shouldn't be.  You can also scan with your anti-virus to see if it finds anything.

I have done all of that, except to put in an antivirus.  I will get norton internet security tomorrow to see if that'll fix this.

Assuming your Hosts file is clean, no proxy server set, startup items in brower have been disabled in CCleaner, no toolbars installed, no strange search engines enabled and homepage changed. hijackthis may help.

Thank you. I used the above. It still pops up. But sometimes it gets blocked by malwarebytes. Find attached.

But I don't want it to pop up at all anymore. Last pop up still went to an ecommerce website.

Anti-Virus Apps

Anti-virus software was originally developed to detect and remove computer viruses. However, with the proliferation of other kinds of malware, antivirus software started to provide protection from other computer threats. In particular, modern antivirus software can protect from malicious browser helper objects (BHOs), browser hijackers, ransomware, keyloggers, backdoors, rootkits, trojan horses, worms, malicious layered service providers (LSPs), dialers, fraud tools, adware and spyware. Some products also include protection from other computer threats, such as infected and malicious URLs, spam, scam and phishing attacks, online identity theft (privacy), online banking attacks, social engineering techniques, Advanced Persistent Threat (APT), botnets and DDoS attacks.
