Angry GS3 stuck on a website

Randomly, when I open the internet there will be 2 or 3 pages open and it will always be on the website for the art institue of Pittsburgh. I have never visited this site but it seems to be stuck on my phone. I have cleared the history and cache. I deleted all of the cookies. I have tried everything that I know besides doing a factory reset. Anybody have suggestions before I do the full reset?

Is the browser set up to sync with your gmail account? You use chrome on your PC? If so go on your PC and see what's going on in your internet account settings maybe it's something in there?

It is synced with my Gmail, but I don't use Chrome on my PC. I will check and see if there is something there. Thanks.

Wonder if your default webpage is set to that website and if on that website if it tries to open up other webpages.

I checked the default home page and it is set to blank page. I think I am quickly moving toward the factory reset.
