I just bought a new Samsung Series 3 Chromebook with the Google Chrome OS operating system. one of the main advantages of this system is that they are supposed to be impervious to viruses.
While browsing the web, when I click a link I will often get redirected to a "linkbucks" site instead of the site I am trying to go to. Other time ads for online game will popup at random. It really seems like I have a virus, but I can't find any information online about anyone else who is having this problem.
I have done a complete reset by pressing Ctrl+Shift+R on the login screen, but the virus is still there.
What is causing the redirect to linkbucks and how do I remove it?
