I recently went to a fake website because of Bing ads being displayed as the first results. Another reason why I like to use google, but bing rewards .
When I went on the fake site it was a blank page for a split second with a changed URL of "tracker" something then redirected me to either a fake site or the real one after that. I ran a full mcafee scan and nothing showed up.
did you install Add BLock Plus? Given Bing ads probably get through its whitelist that Microsoft paid to be on, I wouldn't be amazed if you were. Another reason to keep using Chrome as Ublock Origin doesn't let anyone buy their way onto a whitelist.
If you have the latest updated version of Win 10 then you can add ABP as an add on to Edge, so far there aren't any other choices for Edge. The ability tor add the extensions is only new so maybe in time we will get a better choices than just ABP.
cause Microsoft are very pushy and made it default browser in the latest update. I just ignored them, and have chrome as default again, but most people won't have thought to do that right away. It was almost first thing I did.
