Chrome seems to randomly open windows I can't view. 0 Recommended Answers 77 Replies 284 Upvotes

I'll be browsing around and usually when clicking on something, chrome will open one of a few specific web pages in the background for some reason. These pages are opened as new windows and for what ever reason if I try to click to view them they don't come to the front and simply stay hidden from view. I have scanned my computer for malware and viruses but the scans return nothing. I've tried reinstalling chrome and resetting my settings, but nothing seems to make a difference. The specific sites that keep opening are igcritic.com andppcorn.com, thedesigninspiration.com and designbump.com. I've never heard or to my knowledge, visited either of these sites before and I don't understand why they keep opening in un-viewable windows.

In ENORMOUS need of help with this. It's really obnoxious to be using chrome and then suddenly I have 10 invisible windows open.

I just added a site blocker on my chrome in hopes it stops. I noticed this happening to me a few days ago continuing to today

Same thing happening here too, but no advice. I'm just going to keep scanning for stuff and double down on the blockers. Hopefully Alphabet hunts it down and fixes this soon

I'm having the same problem.  I've found that I can view the windows by right clicking on the preview below and then hitting maximize.  However, I've tried blocking the websites using pop-up blocker and it isn't working.  I've also installed a Chrome extension to block popups but that doesn't seem to be working either.

Same here. I found an extension twice in my Chrome that I didn't add. Wondering if that's the culprit. It's called "Search Manager."

^ checked and I don't have that  (or any strange extensions) so I don't think that's causing it. last extensions i did add though are Twitter Demetricator and Tumblr Savior
