Computer opens ads and third-party websites in chrome when it sleeps

Recommended Posts

So basicly whenever I leave my computer and then the monitor goes to sleep, I come back finding that chrome is open along with 2-10 tabs open with "technews" and other BS news and third-party/spam websites. I feel as if there may be a trojan on my computer, but I'm not sure where to start? I also had another problem where if I open any game, such as league of legends, or Fallout 4, whenever I left-click in the game, it blinks for a split second, and it looks as if in the taskbar as if it was almost quickly tabbing out then going back into the game. This is very annoying, altough I found that going into fullscreen usually fixes the problem. Well no, instead when I go into fullscreen, I literally cannot alt+tab or else the game will start to glitch out when I try to re-open it, resulting in the game either crashing, me having to end the process, and have to restart the game, which is becoming a huge annoyance. I would love if someone offered any solutions to one or both of these problems, if possible.
