Chrome Browser hijack by supposed VM survey

As of middle of March 2017, every so often my google Chrome browser gets hijacked by a survey screen pretending to be from VM with no [x] option to close or opt out. Only accept is possible.

Scanned my machine with antivirus software and Malwarebytes but it is all clean.

Is anyone else experiencing this problem? Does anyone have a solution?

[PLEASE DO NOT CLICK ON LINK BELOW]

The we hijack link is: ************

It is now becoming a serious problem for me.

 

 

[MOD EDIT: Inappropriate Hyperlink removed, please review the Forum Guidelines]

Thanks for looking,

Re: Chrome Browser hijack by supposed VM survey

Yes I had this yesterday, but only the once.  I can't recall what website I was accessing at the time but I simply closed the tab and the survey popup went with it.  I also ran Malwarebytes and scanned with Norton but nothing found.
