Random (dodgey?) Virgin Media Survey opening in my browser

I keep getting a page opening in my browser claiming to be a survey on behalf of Virgin Media...

The main part of the URL is - http://bandretail.com/

 

Is this your work or something as shifty as it looks?

Scam?Scam?

I am seeing an increase in this malware, but the following free program will remove it.

 This is usually due to something that you have very recently installed on your pc and have accepted as free.

Re: Random (dodgey?) Virgin Media Survey opening in my browser

I get this survey regularly too. The thing is I am a computer literature user and as such am VERY wary online and never open dodgy emails, visit dodgy sites or complete surveys unless I know exactly where they came from, so it is genuinely puzzling as to how it got on there. 

I have tried full anti virus and malware scans with malware bytes as you recommend but it doesn't pick it up. Is there another program I could try or a manual removal method for this malware?
