For these redirects, some might be a overly aggressive ad getting into our rotation. We have filters in place to prevent this, but sometimes they break down. Next time you get a redirect, can you grab the url for me and I'll see if I can track down a source?

I clicked on VMF twice and got:
windowsalert72.com scam/hoax
Right now I can only get in from the email replay to this thread, if I try to go directly I get redirected.
This is the only site I have had problems with.

That link seems to be incomplete, so I can't get it forwarded along. Was there some that didn't get copied?

Well yea, it's incomplete, it takes over my computer and I have to shut down and restart so I can't give you a link.
You can google windowsalert72.com scam/hoax though.
For what it's worth it's not doing it today.
It was definitely related to the VMF site though.

Next time this occurs, please take a screen shot of the pop up and the full url of the page it leads too.

Thank you,

Will do, I haven't had that issue since though.
I do have more redirects:

Added those to be blocked.

Please clear your browser cache and cookies and run a Malware scanner (MalwareBytes). This seems to be more than just rogue popups and I want to ensure your device is clear.
