Default Answered: I Keep gettng redirected off WI

Ok, first off I hope I put this in the right section xD. This has happened a few times in the past few days (but I don't go on WI too often, so it's pretty common). I am redirected to an ad for "*********" sometimes. Once, on the front home page, a few times when I click from the front page to the forum, and I just got it again when I opened a thread in a new tab (so I know it wasnt from accidentally double-clicking something). I'm pretty sure I remember a similar problem a long time ago or something
I'm going to attach a picture. I think there's like diferent versions of the ad because this is the first time I got a "new years themed" one, usually i get a plain one
heres the url from the ad : *********
Is anyone else having this problem? Am I supposed to tell somebody or something? uhh yeah thanks in advance
Edit: also in that picture, I had a facebook tab open, but I opened that tab AFTER the ad popped up, so it wasn't from that... just in case anyone was concerned about that

Have you tried scanning your computer for virus'--or more specifically adware? That sounds like a pop up caused by Adware/spyware, which can infect your computer and redirect your browser to sites it wants you to view (usually something it would like to sell you).

May be something to check out.

Very odd. I haven't had this happen before. Is it possible you're clicking anywhere while it's loading? I have sometimes been online, and while it's redirecting/loading a page I can still click a link. Perhaps you are accidentaly clicking an ad, which is my best guess. Hope you're able to get it under control!!!

Default Re: I Keep gettng redirected off WI

a while back i picked up malware that was re-rirecting me off of WI to another site. On your computer do a search for the word "Magoo" that is the name of the virus I had and if you have it listed youll have to get rid of it. I scan with Ad=Aware (free program from the web) and it found it after Windows Security and aother did not.

That sound exactly like you have Malware on your system. You should run a good Virus Scan on your system ASAP. That'll get rid of the bad programming on your computer and will get rid of the problem.
