So, for the past month, there's been this virus that I'm not even sure how I got (I visit a few shady sites, so that's probably it, though I don't know specifics) it. I've compiled a few research pieces to analyze, but I don't even know where to begin. Here's a link with several files that I prepared if anyone can help.

I could really use the help. It's so annoying because everyday, the frequency increases. First, I encountered the adware every 2 pages or so. Now, it's about every 6, so it's getting worse. And now, there's little windows that pop up in the middle of the screen. Here's my PC info in case it helps:

-Computer: Aorus X7 Pro Gaming Laptop
-OS: Windows 8.1 64 Bit
-RAM: 16 GB Unknown Frequency and Manufacturer
-GPU: 2x Nvidia GTX 970M in SLI
-CPU: Intel I7 4870HQ

I've also noticed it doesn't affect incognito or any sites that use SSL (the ones that have https:// at the beginning.)

I just hope someone can help me. This is the third time I've asked about this.

Jesus Crust. I found the solution. Apparently, it was either one of two extensions (LinkChecker Lite, or Turn Off the Lights). I noticed it because earlier in the day, I had enabled them in incognito, but right now, I did some testing, and sure enough, when I clicked on a video (YES THAT KIND OF VIDEO, NOW SHUSH) it took me to the same redirect pages as before. Mystery solved, so now I just need to warn people that it's one of those two.
 
You need to go into chrome settings, go to extensions and find and remove all the unwanted extensions in there.
The top portion of this webpage tells you how to remove extensions from chrome and reset your default search option which also likely needs set back to google.
