    Looperman : Sat 25th Jun 2011 : 3 years ago pretty sure this is because of malware or a virus on your system rather then anything happening on this side

    DonnieVyros : Sat 25th Jun 2011 : 3 years ago Rolla, were you talking about the ads on here or...? Reason I ask is because we've had some wonky ones in the past (dunno about now days because I don't see 'em anymore). Lates!

    DonnieVyros : Sat 25th Jun 2011 : 3 years ago Oh, you mean the Navigation links at the top of the page (?). Then I'm with Looperman, that kinda thing shouldn't be happening on here whenever you click any of the Nav links.
    And with the way you described it, that sounds like one of those nasty fake anti-virus Trojans (have known a couple of people that got 'em too). What I'd suggest (if you are able) is to...
    A.) Do a full scan with your anti-virus software
    (considering how most have holes in 'em I also recommend)
    B.) Downloading & running a scan with the anti-spyware/malware program, Malwarebytes. It can be found by going here...

    C.) I highly recommend restarting your computer in "Safe Mode with Networking" to do these things.

    Hope that's able to help ya. Later on!

    Ensam : Sat 25th Jun 2011 : 3 years ago you could try http://www.superantispyware.com/ but it is starting to sound like you need to save what you can now and reinstall your os. I had a similar virus and it gets worse and worse the more you try to get rid of it as you destroy parts of your registry where it is.
