Sometimes when I go to this website, something completely takes over and redirects me (without my consent) to another website which tells me I have a bunch of errors in my hard drive and have of spyware or whatever and tells me to download(I think) something to get rid of it. It has happen a bunch of times now and I am irritated. Has anyone encountered the same problem and how do you stop it?

I've had many problems getting here, but none like you have described

double post

Happened to me last night when I was on my bosses computer at work! Then, the pop-ups started. It may happen at home, but I usually use the Wii.

Even with firefox I generally get popups

haven't gotten many pop ups here- i just get that stupid website redirection and the "Hi, you have been selected to win a free Apple iPhone."

yes, i have the same problem, since some days recently. It's not drivecleaner, as it was previously, but another program. It's a virus. And, i already did a thread on this subject, when it was drivecleaner.

It seems to be either...

a) Adware/Spyware on your PC
b) Virus

The first one is the most likely, so I recommend you using some spyware removal tool like Spybots or Adaware.

that hasnt happened to me
