fwlink.exe seems to come from "ALL SEA SCREEN SAVER" which from my quick reading seems to be a package of screen savers that also installs spyware.

Ive had a similar problem while on ATS. If I leave the page idle, while staying logged on for more than an hour I find a "soft porn site" If I hit the back button it directs me back to ATS. Has this happened to anyone else?
Ive checked my config but didnt find any virus.

Being a total loser when it comes to how this infernal machine runs I have no idea what you are all talking about. I also don't know if my next comment is on par with what is happening to other users.

Since I started visiting this site and one other (a pro wrestling news site) that have these side bar ads I have been being redirected if I click on a news item to another site. This is not the same thing as that antivirus 2009 thing (I had that once and believe me it was pretty hard to remove). It just takes me to something that is unrelated to whatever I was trying to read.

Again I have no idea if this is something on my computer but I doubt it. My virus and anti spyware are good and it does an automatic scan every day at 5 a.m., and I have not had any reports of malicious items on my scan results.

I'm not saying this has anything to do with ATS or the other site because I don't know Jack Shiitte about computers but it only happens on those two sites and if it helps anybody to know that this is happening then I've done my good deed for the day.

By the way it doesn't happen every time but every once in awhile and it doesn't seem to happen more often, it seems to be the same percentage of clicks, if that makes any sense.
