  • Ads redirecting me to other sites

    I've been purposely away from this site for a while. Today I decided to give it a try. I was reading a thread in the Pow wow Talk forum, and I got redirected to two different sites while just reading the thread!!! I'm getting very frustrated and I know it's originating from this website.

    Anyone else having problems like this? I'm updated on my av software, spyware, IE, and everything else.

    No one else has reported that problem. Doesn't mean it isn't happening, I just haven't heard from anyone.

    I know the site is free from spyware. This could be happening because of one of the ads.

    When this does happen, please take a screenshot of the site you are directed to. Hit the back button and take a screenshot of that too. Send those two me so I can investigate.

    Thanks

      I've been getting the same thing from time to time. I'll open a thread in a new tab and I'll see it switch to some re-direction.

      I'll try to get screen shots the next time, Paul.

          This started happening to me too about a week or so ago. I was redirected to an IKEA ad just a minute ago while trying to read this thread. I had to shut the page down and re-open it to get back here.

            Definately sounds like an ad problem! Send me screenshots so I can identify what ad this is!

              Okay, I'll get a screenshot the next time, too. The last time it happened to me I got redirected to some YouTube video and another website.

                  Happened again just now. Took me to; ChinaOnTV, abcjmp.com, mutess.com and Your Corezen Search results: in rapid succession. Last page was the chinaontv.com and it locked my browser up.

                  I had right-clicked on a thread and "Open in New Tab". Saw that it went there and then heard it start popping to other pages from there, even though my focus was still on the originating tab (had not moved to the newly opened tab yet.) Happened to have just cleared my browser history so I was able to see what sites it took me to.

                  Sorry...can't tell which of your advitisers' ads are causing this.

                    Thanks, that helps. I've been talking with the ad companies about this. Thanks for the info!

                              Have screen shots, but am not sure where to send.

                              IE popups, "Are you sure you want to leave this page". CLicked cancel multiple times, but new page opened anyway. Page is Coupon Mountain, returning search results for Murrey+pool+tables.
