So whenever I open up my browser (I tried other browsers but they all have the same problem) the first tab that opens is a advertisement page. I tried scanning my PC with AVG and Anti Malware bites and it still has the ad. Someone pls help me

Install a pop up blocker or use the browsers pop up blocking setting

Use a an adware scanner to detect adwares or malwares

All of those are software solutions that take additional resources and only work with specific browser or platform. Try HOST file from MVPS. ORG

Have you gone into your browser's settings and selected a website for your homepage, other than the default page?
That may solve your problem.

that too... advert sites will change it their own URL so may want to restore it but if machine or app is infected, restoring home page is not enough...
