Hi everyone. There is this ChinaOnTV ad that keeps redirecting me from WI, and it is causing my antivirus stuff to go off. Is it possible to do something about this ad?

What you are seeing is browser virus/spyware on your own computer. Please make sure to run a spyware and virus scanner on your system to remove it. Also, make sure that you have spyware and virus protection running at all times to prevent this in the future.

I'm not a computer expert, but I think you're wrong about it being something on his computer. I started experiencing the same thing yesterday...on both my laptop and my desktop...and it only happens when I'm on WI. I've never experiened it before on either of my computers, but it's happened at least a dozen times since yesterday, and like I said...it only happens when I'm on WI. It usually occurs while changing pages within the website, but sometimes it happens at the same time that the popup ads on the left side of the page change. The first thing that happens is you hear a voice say "congratulations, you've won". At that point, my spyware usually catches it and blocks it, but it did slip by one time...I was redirected to the ChinaTV ad mentioned above.

I don't know how to do screenshots, but the next time it happens I'll write down whatever info my spyware gives me about it.

I just experienced the same thing Yesterday on my Computer. I agree with Justin, You should run a Spyware & Virus Scanner to remove the Virus or Pop-up from your Computer.

I have Webroot on both of my computers, I have run several scans since yesterday; Webroot recommends that I run a system scan every time this happens. Every time I run a scan, I find a virus that needs to be removed, and I remove it; but it keeps getting re-installed on my computer(s), and it's always when I'm on WI. The last scan I ran quarantined Mal/obfJS-X and Mal/obfJS-Y. I'm not blaming WI for this, but I'll bet as time goes on you're going to hear from more and more people about it and find that it's originating from one of your popup ads, or at least from somewhere within WI. It's just too much of a coincidence that it only happens when I'm on this site.
