    The moment I open my browser and try to go on a website(ANY WEBSITE) it automatically gets redirected to a different URL showing me some random ad.

    Not just this, even if I click anywhere on the webpage or reopen the browser, it keeps on happening like repeatedly.

    Could anyone here tell me which Malware/Botnet does this??

    Thanks!!

    Sounds like a virus/malware have you run any scans on your system?

    Stop browsing dodgy websites, and run a scan with something like malware bytes.

    If you are using chrome that might triggered by some installed extensions, try to deactivate all and then activate again one by one, if you are using betternet vpn s*it start with it. Last time I've found a malware in there extension!

    Ps. Do not run any tabs while doing it.

    Hello, this sounds like a problem caused by malware on your pc. please go to firefox > addons > extensions & remove any suspicious entries (toolbars, things that you have not installed intentionally, don't know what purpose they serve, etc). also, go to the windows control panel/programs and remove all toolbars or potentially unwanted software from there and run a full scan of your system with the security software.

    You Installed an Adware.

    You can fix this by disabling the Browser Addons or Uninstalling that.

    It’s better to reinstall your operating system.

    Another vote for Malwarebytes for this, it is free and easy to use plus it really does the job well in most cases.
