    Default www.microsoft.com-windows-booster.live/tonic2/

    I am using Firefox on Windows 10.

    It is virtually unusable as tabs keep opening, well over a 100 since it started. Other tabs keep opening up also, www. videoadult. club and chanelets.aurning.com.

    Spybot can't find anything. McAfee can't find anything but it does stop the "windows" page from opening now.

    I tried malwarebites, that can't find anything.

    I restarted the PC and it happened again.

    I would be grateful for any assistance.

    Thanks (I am in the UK)

    I've tried to quickly research this and it would appear to be an active JS (Java Script) on your browser.

    For a quick fix (hoping it works for what we need to do), download and install the below extensions so we can attempt to work with a couple of tools with out interference, you can remove later,

    NoScript is a Firefox add-on that blocks the actions of malicious scripts by using whitelisting and other technology.
    AdBlock is a browser add-on that blocks annoying banners, pop-ups and video ads
