Might also be wise to run a few cleaner apps too; as likely you may have a pest (or more) hanging about...

Download and run the following. Install each using the manual/custom option - NOT the default automatic. Watch for and uncheck any pre checked boxes - other than the actual utility itself. This way you avoid acquiring all manner of stuff - pests, nuisances and changes - you neither need nor want Some of those are true pain to eradicate.

All of the following are free, safe to use; regularly recommended here.

adwcleaner:

Junkware Removal Tool (JRT):

Malwarebytes:

ccleaner:

JRT instals to the desktop from where you run it. It opens into a small window, follow the instructions therein. It will reboot the system as part of its process.

Retain any logs for possible further use/consultation - not the least by one or two others here who are very much up on pest removal; more so than am I.

"Only when you visit that website? If so may we inquire which one it is?

Much of a similar mind to phil22, who I think regards it with suspicion; which is why I suggested the utilities in my first respnse. Have you run them all?
