I'm curious if anyone has been surfing around ATS and suddenly a strange web page fills their whole screen from out of the blue. This happened to me yesterday and now a few minutes ago with this web page. (caution, it just popped up from I don't know where)
www.astorclub.com...
All I see are fireplaces. Is there an ad for this on ATS?

Yesterday I popped into a furniture web site without clicking on anything.
The other strange thing is I suddenly have access to RATS when I didn't renew it. Have I been hacked or is something strange going on?

edited comment (At least I thought the last renewal expired at the end of the last month, I don't know if it's been changed to 30 days or something like that instead of a per monthly basis)

w0w...

very strange...

you do know that RATS access lasts for one month???

and, about the adds, maybe google is attacks us because of the "f _ _ k george bush" add


i really don't know,,,

to be on the safe side, get an anti-spyware program like ad-aware...

No actually a Chicks with No clothes on thread would be better if he's gonna get pop-ups relevant to the topic! LOL

Hydrogen fireplaces doesn't ring a bell.


Therefore I will say no.

It would be nice if I wasn't worried about one liners here. I just changed my ATS password, I don't know if that will help or not.

hmmm, I was posting about someone at Google must have a sense of humor. Maybe more than I thought.


First I get thrown to a furniture site, now I'm seeing fireplaces.

It sounds like someone is trying to tell you it's time to redecorate.


Perhaps tomorrow you will be directed to a new dishwasher?

I may have found some spyware. I'm fixing it so hopefully I won't have any more problems with strange furniture popping up.

Ad aware was clean and didn't help.

Try using Ewido anti-malware and don't forget to update the definitions after installing. Run a full scan.
