(this started happening ever since I last updated Malwarebytes) EVERYTIME I click a link ANY link (on Google Chrome which is my main browser) even going on google.com or opening youtube/clicking on youtube videos it always detects a Trojan and it says that a program tried to connect to a shady website (the program trying to access the shady site ALWAYS appears to be Google Chrome and the website it is trying to connect to ALWAYS appears to be adult(DOT)yourblocksite(DOT)com (the "(DOT)" is just the "." symbol for the website as I dont want to post that shady link))
I have tried multiple system scans and no viruses or bad programs are detected
This is getting really annoying as Malwarebytes keeps popping up in the bottom left corner saying it blocked a connection from a Trojan and it takes up like an eighth of the screen

I was already signed in to chrome and yes I just confirmed that it is only happening on Chrome as I tried going online on Mozilla Firefox and on top of that whenever the message pops up it detects Google Chrome as being the application that was trying to connect to that shady website
also I do have extensions on Chrome such as ad/popup blockers but I have not installed or updated any of them since first installing them

as far as I know it is not bad and I only had that extension to block websites and so on that I didn't want showing up on my PC but just disabling it made the popup in the bottom left disappear
