I get this crap almost every day that I browse this forum. After looking at a few threads, I hit the back button and nothing happens. Then I look at the recent history list and it is full from top to botom with this address repeated over and over:

I don't know where this comes from, but it really PISSES ME OFF!!!!!:banghead:

I never get this BS on any other web site.

I have to close IE and re-open it to get back to the forum.

never seen that problem with FireFox, odd sounding issue.
It might be worth downloading something like this and doing a full scan on your systems, for you folks having these issues..

good point, his entire system may be routed through some 'spoof' router for all it's browsing.
Google and use AdBlock Plus - free and effective. If you decide to switch from IE to Firefox or another browser, they will give you the option during or shortly after installation to transfer your Bookmarks from IE.

Part of my job as a graphic artist is to design Graphic User Interfaces (GUIs) for sites - that's the "pretty" front end stuff you see on a site. It has to link to the back end code to work (some browsers let you view the code). I need to make two versions of the code, one specifically designed for IE and one other that works with every other site, using some code that tells the site when it has to use the IE version. IMO IE was written terribly from the ground up. They keep trying to fix it with new patches that only make it slower and less compatible with the rest of the world. Firefox works well on my PCs and my Macs.
I've been a fan of navigator and FireFox for a long time. Just wondering what you think about Chrome, is it enough better to switch away from FF? (I use desktops and a laptop - just normal browsing)
