  4. Hello and welcome to the Malwarebytes Forum, There are no obvious signs of any infection in the logs. I suspect it is webpage based redirects that are occurring. Do you recall which particular websites you are visiting when this happens? Adding an adblocker to your browser extensions may assist. www.ublock.org, www.adblockplus.org or https://adguard.com/en/adguard-browser-extension/overview.html are all good ones to consider. Clean out your browser cache as well: While the Chrome browser is open Press Ctrl + Shift + Del to open the Clear Browsing Data Window. Click the Clear browsing data button.
