getting an extra webpage when I open a webpage

When I download a porn webpage I get an underlieng page that doesn't show up on my brouser page and seems to have the sole purpose of using up a good percentage of my download speed.  He only time I can see the leeching page is when I shut down the browser page and the leech stays opened. How do I cure this or at least block the page?

Re: getting an extra webpage when I open a webpage

Adult websites are famous for having a lot of malware that goes along with them, including spyware, ransomeware, key loggers and who knows what all else.  My advice is to stop going to that website before you get a bug on your computer, if you haven't already.  Also run a complete scan of your system with your A/V software, and check your browser for any extensions you know you didn't put in there.
