I've got something needling me on my pc now for a few weeks. Every time I restart my pc and it get's back to desktop, a single Chrome browser tab will be opened and directed to the exact same website, dota2game.org. No other popups or re-routing occurs from that point forward. Chrome settings seem to be fine, and Defender is not finding anything either.

Has anyone seen this? Or can they recommend a different/better scanner to use to try finding it?

Running Windows 10.

Thanks.

It could be a browser hijack. Make sure you clean and wipe your cache and history, etc....in chrome....

Also, make sure nothing is in your startup stuffs that would open that, such as an html file that would force chrome to open....
