When I place my cursor to the left of the page and try and scroll, I get redirected to the site mentioned below.



Since I use McAfee I get this warning page. This is happening on both my home and work computers. When this happens, I am not over anything, ad or otherwise. Just the blank background. All I do is try and scroll. It is repeatable, but only happens on an occasional page of a thread.

It is happening on both machines. No infection of any kind as the McAfee service stops me from being redirected. When they test the site it tries to compromise their computer.

When this happens, my cursor is not over an ad. Its just off to the left side where I usually put it to scroll down a page. This started yesterday and only on a couple of threads. Must be something attached to an ad I guess. I'm not much of a tech.

The first thing I do is check for spyware or viruses and both machines are clean. My work laptop is set for a complete scan every morning and this was the first site I visited today.

This thread seems to be about something similar or the same.

seeing as my tech expertise consists of checking the plug, I'll direct you to this post:

and suggest you shoot Bill a u2u with the info or post it here with a u2u to him to check into this thread.

Will do. I've been running scans with different software and found nothing so far even with heuristic scans.
