      Being redirected to other sites when I click on lab board links.

      Hi Woody,

      I'm being consistently redirected to other sites when I click on a forum link or a thread link. The first was for a comcast survey. This was the second one:

      Reimage Repair - Speed up my PC

      I'm going to run a virus scan but wanted to give you a heads up in case it's attached to the board.

      Thanks.

      Thanks for the heads up. I would say from googling the name of the repair link you have adware on our PC. I would run a virus scan and something like Malwarebytes or Super Anti Spyware. Both are free programs designed to get rid of stuff like that.

      I edited your link so nobody clicks on it.

      Yeah, it sounds like adware to me as well. Malwarebytes and spybot are both excellent removal programs and are free. I use them all the time at work when one of my users clicks on something they shouldn't have and ends up getting spyware, adware, and viruses.
