If you've been previously infected it will happen on a lot of websites.
As in, it's taking you to their website. It's *NOT* ATS.
and frankly it could be a million things, your details are scant.
If you don't want to use your email, use a FREE email account, such as GMAIL or one of the plethora of random ones you can use and throw away, and
redirect it to dodgeit.com...
which is an entirely anonymous email receiving service. You use it with any name...
firstname.lastname@example.org as your sending Email will have any responses sent to that url.
Run SpyBot - www.safer-networking.org...
- it detects most browser hijacks. Or spyware.
Make sure you update the patterns as soon as you download it.
If you actually have a virus that is acting like this, check your HOSTS file. unlikely but some URL's get redirected via their IP to a different
host, bypassing DNS.
With Windows it's in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\ and is called hosts
All it should contain is 127.0.0.1 localhost and a bunch of #'remmed out statements above.
Spybot can show you all of these as well as determine any threats on your PC - it takes a while but it does work quite well.
