Welcome to the Seven Forums.

What is your home page set to for Chrome?

You might want to look at your HOSTS file:

I like to know what process causes such changes...
...so I use Process Monitor
...like I did in this post/videos.

You might prefer to just cure the problem via some scanning tools - in which case, you will need to wait for someone to help you run those tools.

Have you scanned for both malware and adware yet? If not download, install, decline the trial, update and run a full scan with Malwarebytes | Free Anti-Malware & Internet Security Software to check for serious infection first, followed by SUPERAntiSpyware - Downloads to check for spy and adware.

Check Browser Add-Ons and Search, disable any but Flash. If you see strange entries uninstall them in Control Panel.

Be sure to at least establish a Clean Boot and use the recommended AV for best performance.
