    Ever have your browser take you to another page for no reason?

    the strangest thing. I'm on a web page, (photobucket to be exact) and I load the page, and in less than 10 seconds, my page goes away and I get taken to another page that doesn't exist.

    The new page reads:

    Sorry, we couldn't find http://ib.adnxs.com/pt%3Fmember. Here are some related websites:

    WTF? Why is it t aking my away from the page I am on for no reason and trying to take me somewhere else?

    You have a hijacker on your computer....

    I suggest downloading and running the following:

    Adaware http://www.lavasoft.com/products/ad_aware_free.php and spybot http://www.safer-networking.org/en/home/index.html
    UA LU189

    10mm, because it's better than .45acp

    Hijackers will either work for firefox or IE, not both, different programs.

    Make sure to run both Adaware and Spybot.

    If you really want to clean up your computer follow these instructions....
