Do a malware check with some malware scanning programs on the Windows computer.
You need to scan with all programs because each program detects different malware.
Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.

You can also do a check for a rootkit infection with TDSSKiller.

Re: Automatically Opening New Tab with advertisement website

hello gaj0pawar, you can either install the searchreset addon to get rid of the problem or manually reset the page that opens on each new tab.

enter about:config into the firefox location bar (confirm the info message in case it shows up), search for the preference named browser.newtab.url and double-click & change its value to about:blank (the default would be about:newtab which shows thumbnails & links to your most visited pages).
