I just finished posting a reply to a message and I was sent to this page:

www.barrelomoney.com...

Apparently its some anti-bush website. Pretty bizarre though.

I just checked and it was clear. This is what happened:

I typed the message, clicked post reply and instead of getting the 'Your message has been submitted' screen, I was just whisked away to that nutty site. Weird.

Did you have any other windows open?

Could it have been a pop up from another site?

I have a decent pop-up blocker on my comp. I literally clicked 'back' and I was back on ATS.

No, that's a browser hijack of some sort.

I'll make sure the other mods are aware of it and if there's some sort of pattern here, we'll hop on it. It may be that theres a "rude ad" in the queue. We've had those before and they're mega-annoying.

Don't know what you are using for hijack/spyware/adware killer - but Spybot S&D is about the best there is.

The guy who wrote this HATES malware, and gives this app for free (donations excepted, but not necessary).

I test apps, one was a key logger - Norton Antivirus fully updated did not see it - Spybot did.

Spybot S&D Homepage

Just my input fer ya.

Misfit

another good spyware detection program (I think) is Ad-Aware. I use both spybot and ad-aware as ad-aware will catch some things that spybot doesn't and vice versa

if you want ad-aware as well you can get it here:

You mentioned this to me personaly. I doubt what you mention above is not proof. In fact it isn't really anything. I didn't even know AS had been banned.

I guess even some staff are part of the cover up.

You have even gone as far as too say that there was no agent smith.
