    When I click to read a post I get redirected to "uncover the net"

    Maybe its my machine?

    No problems here, I have never had that happen. Must be your computer.

    I am running a scan now with Avast.
    I'll Run Malwarebyts when thats done scanning.

    It acts like some sort sort of browser hijacker.

    That happen on my thread about my blown head gasket, and I noticed that you were the last poster right before it started happening. Rob is supposed to have it fixed. Is it still happening? Is it just on that thread?

    I think I have it fixed on my end it was a Firefox add on Extension called infoatoms.
    I disabled it and restarted Firefox and it seems to work ok for now.
    I did run Malwarebytes and found 2 issues.

    Just so you know these links I posted are from earlier today.

    There are different sites from this evening.
    I can post them but you will need to let me know right away as I will be offline till tomorrow.

    You are dealing with some add ware and it is being distributed when someone clicks on your links remove them and download Microsoft security essentials from microsoft.com

    If it does not clean it up. go to the control panel add remove programs and find the bitsh. Some add ware is not detected by antivirus because it is a program that you accepted to install without knowing.

    Yea the problem is on your end, cause your pasting outside links, if you can copy/paste the exact TMF url that your having issues with then i can tell - but our system is scanned 24/7 and we pay hundreds per month to keep out all the garbage :)

    No not that ... sorry I misunderstood. I thought you were saying you pay a lot to keep out garbage posters.
