What would cause this? Its the most annoying thing...
Where are they being redirected to?
I live in Las Vegas, they keep getting redirected yo yellow pages, and vegas advertisements, no pron or anything, my pc is up to date and clean...
At least you thought it was.
Sound like maybe CoolWebSearch which you can get rid of with CWShredder or if you want to check the entries with HiJackThis and nail down the problem.
Agreed, doesn't sound clean to me.
What ISP do you have, several have begun to replace site they can't find w/ ads. Try opendns and see if you still have issues.
Ditto,it doesn't sound pretty good.
Ill get right on that!! Thanks
Ok Both came up clean..odd!
have you installed any new programs lately
Might help to post the Hijackthis log.
I don't believe that they have started their targetted advertising yet, if you have doubts take a look at some alternate DNS servers, Google recently introduced theirs, Level 3 has always been really good, I don't suggest OpenDNS.
Read somewhere [not sure how much truth in it] but Level 3 is slowing closing off access to those DNS servers to the public.
