How exactly does that work?
One of the dozen or more banners, ads, directs are hanging you up... if you look to the bottom of your browser page you will see them load or simply view the source and you will see them throughout the load.

If you use Opera, you can block ads from the basic preferences, it's built-in to the browser app and see if your problem goes away.

If it does... you have a perfect storm alignment in your other browser with ads or such.

A few of you have reported the url's for these redirects, we need those in order to block them as they are piggy backing through corrupted adds, the plus side of this is that it's not an issue of your computer.
Merely an annoyance

Couple of days ago I got redirected to Elegirl's profile page when I clicked on the forums link. I doubt that's ad related, but who knows.

that might have been a glitch, was it in a random thread?

It probably was just a glitch. I only brought it up because of all the redirect issues others have been having.

If it happens again let us know and we'll do some more digging

Re: I keep getting re-directed to other websites ....

Yesterday on my Windows tablet I was getting redirected to a ransomware site. It was immediate upon clicking on any thread. Presumably a compromised ad. No problem today on my Mac (I did not have access to my Mac yesterday). The site had a robo-voice saying Microsoft had notified them my computer was compromised, and to call the phone number on the screen immediately. Their script locked up IE to the point of not even being able to close the browser, but a reboot of the tablet cleared the problem.

Go into the browser history of IE and see if you can pull the url of that page and post it here. If you haven't been gotten it again, we can hope that it was already blocked but doesn't hurt to double check.

I can't find any history. I was using private browsing mode on the Windows tablet. Sorry.

If you come across it again, even using private browsing you should be able to grab the URL straight from the window. Thanks for your help in this, and sorry for the trouble everyone.

Same for me, and extremely annoying. My solution was to just install an alternate browser (still same problem isolated to TAM), but disable all the java abilities of this browser. This fixed the problem but disabled many features on TAM. I can no longer "like" anything or get notifications.

Whatever it is, the source is that the website has been hacked and malicious javascript inserted into the code, or it is coming from 3rd party advertisers served up in banner areas of the code.

Re: I keep getting re-directed to other websites ....

we're still working on blocking these re-directs. we don't get them but we find that users in certain regions get them more than others so when you send in the URLs and browser type info, as well as the IP, it's easier to block them regionally.

Re: I keep getting re-directed to other websites ....

I get a lot of these. But not when I am on TAM.

This situation was made better when I switched to Panda antivirus.
