Adware can slow down your PC. It can also slow down Google Chrome by constantly downloading and displaying advertisements These pop-up ads can also distract you and waste your time if they have to be closed before you can continue using Google Chrome.
This Google Chrome pop-up ads is usually caused by adware installed on your PC. These type of adware programs are bundled with other free software that you download off of the Internet. Unfortunately, some free downloads do not adequately disclose that other software will also be installed and you may find that you have installed adware without your knowledge. AdwCleaner
Once an adware program is installed, whenever you will browse the Internet with Google Chrome, unwanted advertisements will pop-up on web pages that you visit. These ads are aimed to promote the installation of additional questionable content including web browser toolbars, optimization utilities and other products, all so the adware publisher can generate pay-per-click revenue.
Sounds like something your browser ate. Not to be smart but the browser can be highjacked like any other browser. Additionally some apps, extensions, and other add-ons to chrome may have hidden gotchas you might not know about. Many free items usually have some form of adware in them. Also if you loaded something that themes Chrome, that could have easily done what you said.
I would uninstall Chrome and re-install. Easy enough solution. If you have your Chrome sync turned on, all the stuff you had will be restored. Start removing extensions and apps you really don't need and see if that solves the problem.
If all else fails, send feedback to Google. Not like they'll respond to you but they might come out with an update to prevent such issues in the future.
Check to see if the problem is adware or your own programs that are just lagging up your computer. Open the Task Manager [CTRL + ALT + DEL] and look at the processes tab. Find any processes that have an abnormally high Memory Usage. If you don't recognize their names, you may have spyware, however, you should not try to disable them in the Task Manager.
Go to google.com and type in the names of suspicious looking executables. Pages like processlibrary.com or neuber.com are good at identifying malicious processes. [Note: some viruses disguise themselves as windows processes, it is well worth googling0 every process in task manager to find out which could be malicious]
When discovered which processes are malicious, go to My Computer and search your C: drive for the executable. Delete the executable and any associated files. If an error message saying it is in use, stop the process using task manager and try again.
When dealing with executables disguised as windows processes, search for them as described in the previous step. And if any duplicates appear in the search results, take CARE to only delete the suspect file that is not where it should be i.e. not in C:WINDOWSSystem32. When identified as malicious, delete the executable and associated files as before.
Adware often comes 'packaged' with other programs such from places such as Yahoo! and Smiley Central. By not installing/downloading these programs you minimize the amount of adware/spyware you get. Delete these programs first.
For all other Spyware/Adware download a free, easy-to-use anti-adware program like Spybot-S&D or AdAware. AdAware is a bit easier and is recommended for inexperienced users. NOTE: These programs will catch what the other misses so install both.
Also there is free 'AVG free edition': "AVG" which is a free anti virus program, and should find any or most viruses and Trojan horses in your system, and that gives the same protection as Norton or McAfee, and that sends regular updates automatically and by request.
Use a browser such as Mozilla Firefox, which blocks most adware.
Also, Microsoft's Windows Defender provides real-time scanning of your system, and has a comprehensive definitions library that does an excellent job of detecting spyware.
