| | Unanswered: Webkinz re-directing to Bing - anyone else?
argh, so this is about the 6th time this has happened to me with Webkinz. Certain times I enter webkinz.com in my address bar and hit enter, instead of the Webkinz home-page coming up I re-directed to Bing search engine with this screen:
I'm on a Mac, I've scanned for any sort of virus and there's none, and Webkinz World is the ONLY web page that is affected and does this. I've tried deleting cookies, clearing cache, history, yada yada yada, and it still re-directs to Bing. And then, each time... about 30 minutes later, I can enter Webkinz - and it loads to Webkinz. So what is this??? A bug in Webkinz? Or a subtle hint that I'm playing too much in WW every day?
Today, I was actually logged OUT of WW and noticed THIS:
See how in the AD section, it's not an ad for Ganz Estore or Webkinz Newz - but it's for BING? And then in the bottom of the screen in the progress bar it says "transferring data from bing" - instead of webkinz?
So, any brains out there that can answer this question? If I can't find an answer, I'm going to have to call Ganz on Monday and see what on earth the problem is.
So, it's 10:33 pm now, I did nothing to change any settings and can log back in to WW again. Glad to be back on, but still would really like to know what this Bing thing is all about - it's a nuisance!
