These ads for phishing websites keep opening up in chrome whenever My computer is on but idle. Microsoft Security Essentials and Sophos can't find any virus' and Extension Defender for Chrome can't find anything either. Im not sure what it is. I dont think its another internet tab opening things up as I have weeded them out. It seems to be adware that refuses to be found. Any advice helps. Thanks in advance

Try lavasoft ad-aware or malwarebytes anti-malware. Both have free versions that you can use just as an additional scanner, both better that MSE with 1% of the system footprint

You don't have to use real time protection, so no. Only open it when you want to scan and it won't interfere with anything else
