Had no idea to where to have put this but..
Earlier on, was just minding my own business updating my checklist, then for some random reason it was loading up i got taken to a site that sold "anti bird flu" tables and "viagra tablets"...
Strange i know..
But i ran an anti virus scan and ran an anti spyware run and couldn't find nothing.. What the heck happened. :confused:
Happened earlier on today and hasn't happened since.

That is strange, it has never happened to me while coming to this site.

I know Norton's program doesn't always detect/clean spyware completely, so I'm thinking a lot of the name brand programs might miss as well. Try downloading Spyware Doctor from HERE (http://pack.google.com/intl/en/pack_installer.html).

It wouldn't haved come from this site, as I believe it is fairly secure. (Usually forums with over one hundred thousand members are)

I know this sites fine but its a tad bit strange why that happened though, and btw Norton fails..

never had anything like this happen to me on this site

according to McAfee antivirus that I have got there is nothing wrong with this site. It is totally green meaning there is nothing wrong with it. Try changing your anti virus. I have never had any adverts on this site.

I just had it happen on the home page. Took me to something that said "Buy ciaao" or something liek that. I have 4 anti virus programs. Its not finding anything but i recently had a trojan, but that's been dealt with. I guess it's the site. And for the record, Norton sucks balls.

If you never had anything like this to happen to you, why do you need to post it in this thread? That one is for jason.
Just run all the virus scans and spywares etc. on your PC.
Hopefully you'll find something and get rid of it :)

I switched to Firefox a long time ago, until I started coming to this website that is :)
I used to get redirected all the damn time, until I went back to IE. Scans never turned up anything either...weird :)
