Slyck redirect...???

Postby Fez » Mon Nov 07, 2005 2:15 pm

Hey all...

I am not sure if I am the only one that has run into this, as I have been away most of the summer and just started posting again recently, but I have been re-directed a couple of times in the past week when trying to open a forum/discussion page. :?:

I wasn't thinking clearly or I would have copied the address of the redirect, but if it happend again I will pay a little more attention.

I just thought I would start this thread in case someone else notices this happening.

**Admins feel free to move this wherever you think it needs to be**

either ya typed the url wrong...

or you might want to check your hosts file..

and also scan for ad/spyware.

That was my thought....
I scanned for "extras" but found none.

This happened when I was already on the site and reading forums, then went to choose another and got re-directed to some fleshy website (not bad, but not what I was looking for) :D ...I thought it weird but assumed something had just gone haywire...

It wasn't until it happened a second time that I clued in that something may be amiss.

Thanks poullos...good to have some time to be back with... :D

It wasn't .net or .org as it is linked as a fav...

I was definitely here doing my thing and went to check a recent response to some posting or another and WHOOPS...there were boobs on my screen.

I'll keep and eye out...maybe it was just a freak occurance, but I thought I would mention it in case it pops up again in the future.

Happens to me all the time too


.... at least that's the story I'm sticking to anyway! ;) :lol:



If it's not something on your PC (host file, spyware, etc) it must be either that your 'click finger' has developed a mind of it's own, or it's a DNS issue (as already suggested). Try changing your DNS server settings from automatic (assuming they're currently set to auto) to manual and specifying a different DNS server IP.
There are 10 types of people in the World; those who understand binary, and those who do not.
