being redirected from main site

Post#1 » Sat Feb 16, 2013 8:18 pm

For a few days now, on the main site, I have occasionally been redirected. It seems to be mostly to add sites trying to sale me something. I don't really pay attention to them, just hit the back button. Thought ya'll might need to know.

Admins may be testing for a replacement for adbrite? Not sure.

This has begun happening with increased frequency.

Today it redirected me to: http://search.ukhealthy.co.uk/search.php

I just navigate to icefilms.info and after about 5 seconds it redirects me to other pages.

Today it was that page, I'll try and keep track of it. I suspect it's a malicious script of some sort.

I have not had this problem ever.

Try scanning your system for ADware/Malware/Virus's/Check for unwanted browser extensions that cause this.

Yes, it is definitely happening much more often over the past week -10 days. Constant redirect. I've cleared all caches: flash & Firefox. Killed off all cookies in browser, silverlight & database cookies. Redirect from main site still happening and on a more constant basis.

I never had this problem.
Way pointed you in right direction (adware/spyware).
Maybe this helps:
AdwCleaner

or
Browser Cleanup
