This is always traced to the stupid ads from google. In the meantime I will move this post to the 'site issues' forum which the help desk monitors.

Hey guys,

When you come across these redirects/pop-ups, please respond in this thread with an image of the ad, but more importantly a link of the redirect/ad/pop-up.
That way we can see about getting it removed.

Thank you,

Richard.

I just got it again. It takes over the web site and has been a Hallmark cards Valentine's ad. All I can do is to close the browser and come back in

Again tonight, back to back attempts at getting into the forums. This time, both redirects took me to a video that wouldn't load

This has been happening to me the last three days multiple times per day. A few times AVG has caught it and blocked it, but most of the time I have to shut it down and reload the site. A complete PITA.

Are you able to copy the link out of the top of your browser before you shut it down?

Error Hard Drive Safety Delete

This is what I got this afternoon, though my Norton may have stopped it, prompting that ?
My Norton popped up and said " Web Attack fake webpage" or something to that effect...

No Problems with redirects on my end using Chrome or Opera. You may have Malware on your device.
