Pop up ads lower right corner, extinct until Nov. 25

I went to extensions ( not add-ons) in Google settings and also to my control panel and programs. I saw nothing to identify these lower right hand corner popup ads. I used Malwarebytes and it found nothing and Trend micro finds nothing, I cleared all chrome data. These ads were x rated and now not so.
Within the ad you see: Google Chrome - www.heavy-r.com.
Is there a setting in Chrome to stop these or should I remove Chrome? I do see a option in the settings to restore Chrome to the default.
This started early yesterday and never before. When they pop up which is every 5-10 minutes, if I ignore them they close. When they re-appear an annoying sound.
Close does nothing and open just opens another window to some site,

Here is all that was in host file:
# Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
#      102.54.94.97     rhino.acme.com          # source server
#       38.25.63.10     x.acme.com              # x client host

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
#      127.0.0.1       localhost
#      ::1             localhost
