[Q] Chrome automatically opens new tabs
Hi I'm using a stock Nexus 4. Recently I've encountered this issue where Chrome would keep opening a new tab every half an hour. Chrome just launches by itself and overrides any app I'm working on. Say I'm playing a game and it would just launch on it's own.
The site it opens remains the same which is: droidsearchapp.info/antivirus/index1.php
It appears to be some anti-virus scan kind of website.
I understand this must have come through some app I have installed but I can't figure out which app because around the time it started, I hadn't installed anything atleast a day before. I've cleared Chrome Cache and Chrome data, even installed Ad Network apps to identify the app which sent this malware in the phone but can't seem to find the culprit.
Any help on this? Any way I can stop Chrome from force opening a new tab?
I can't factory reset the phone, there's a lot of data here and there that I fear losing.
