Hi,
I've got two separate computers infected with some kind of malware/adware that keeps popping up tabs in my browser (Chrome) on Russian websites. I'm posting two separate threads; one for each computer.

NM, found the problem. I looked through my Chrome extensions and found something I didn't recognize. Don't remember what it was called, something innocuous, with a real logo. I uninstalled it, and I've had no trouble since then. Interestingly, the rogue extensions were named differently on the two affected computers.
