    The last couple of days I have been redirected on a number of times to a page saying I have won this and that prize:

    I tried to do a screen print but its disabled, so this is the page: http://testables.net/d/juiyru.com

    What’s going on, have we been high jacked ?

    could be a program sitting on your computer,
    use ad aware to do a scan, also adding adblock to
    your browser can help stop these things popping up.

    Not just me then! Thanks for the help fella's but I don’t think its the computer. This is my work laptop and it’s got security and firewalls that not even Gary McKinnon could get passed. The redirection only happens on this site.

    Meanwhile, a billionaire philanthropist in Nigeria is sat with his head in his hands wondering why every single time he tries to do a good deed and give something back to the people of the world...

    ...nobody ever responds to his emails...........!

    Does it redirect the entire page or is it a pop up?

    I'm a little disappointed? I opened this thread to read about soft meaty chunks in a convenient key open tin with other processed meat lovers!

    Please make your titles a little more accurate,

    Ps keeping up with me David shouldn't be a problem, given that your blade is BLACK ?
