Getting Redirected to a Spam Site

Getting redirected each time I come on here. It redirects me to a Doctors.com page with a bunch of spam and Dr. ads.

Anyone else get this? I don't have any spamware on my computer now, and am 100% positive. Weird.

Methinks your system is not as spamware free as you think it is. None of the computers I access this site from are having any unusual actions.

do a cookies flush on your browser . . . make sure your adobe flash and java are up to date and check your browser setting on page redirects.

I'm beginning to think so too.. I thought it was just google chrome and it just happened on safari when I switched browsers. Not sure where I picked it up honestly. I don't go on anywhere but facebook, here, and bodybuilding forums.

I saw that when logging into the site this morning. Not just the OP.

All I know is that I have to wade through endless hours and hours of porn spam before I can get here.

Which makes getting here seem soooooooooo anti climatic...

But then, you all are ready to screw with me so it makes it all seem worthwhile, right?

I always use www.bleepingcomputer.com. Log in and go to the virus tab. Click on the "Am I Infected" tab and leave your question. Be sure to id the type computer, operating system, specs, etc. They will respond with a long message with links to programs that will clean out the problem.

Have been using them for several years with good results.

And bodybuilding forums are so not sketchy.

Not really. Stay off the ads from the website about supplements, and browse for new lifting routines. Bodybuilding.com has enough funds from their traffic to make sure you're virus free.

The definition of malware has changed since corporate america has completed their takeover of the web. Since your computer is primarily their surveillance tool it is ok if they spy on you. It is only a problem if you spy on someone, especially them.
