Out of the blue now when I click on a link in Chrome on a web page a new tab opens with a random ad.  What caused this, how can I stop it -- and why didn't my Trend Virus Protection prevent this?

Hi ccven84,

Welcome to the Community!

Ads are usually displayed on websites. Trend Micro is not blocking all ads. It depends on the ads if it is detected as harmful or suspicious, then that is the time that it will be blocked.

You may provide a screenshot of the ads for us to check on it.
