    When I click on "New Posts", occasionally a new tab will open in Chrome. Sometimes it's a sketchy looking website that said I need to update Flash and other times it's a site that plays random videos. I have AdBlock and Avast anti-spyware which isn't detecting anything.

    Has this happened to anyone else lately? Any ideas?

    Wow. Nothing odd with other sites? I'd find something else and run a scan. Malwarebytes or something like that. Look for weird extensions in Chrome.

    Nope, nothing on any other sites. I'll try running something else when I get home.

    I second malwarebytes its probably something that is redirecting you when you clicking on links.


    I am using chrome too and do not have this problem.

    yes more then likely some kind of malware causing this issue. Strange that it would only be here on mnsubaru however. Also using chrome with no problems.

    Any advice beyond running a scan through a different program?

    Are you "accidentally" clicking on the Single Thai Lovers banner ad just below the new posts button?

    My guess is that it is a PUP (potentially unwanted program) Malwarebytes will find it more than likely. its pretty good about that.

    Does it redirect you at all when you open the browser at all when it is first started?

    also make sure to check the properties of your application shortcuts. malicious spyware likes to edit those.

    malwarebytes normally takes care of it.
    If you have any issues shoot me a pm. I do this stuff on the side and can take care of it and also any junk you have in the computer slowing it down.

    Did you try turning it off and then turning it back on again?

    Just ran malwarebytes and it detected a bunch of stuff...imagine that! Anyway, I restarted and then Chrome & Firefox wouldn't work because apparently my proxy wouldn't allow it? Now I have no idea what that means but I deselected my "Use a proxy for your LAN" in my internet configurations...is this okay? Everything works fine after doing that.

    Well, I just signed back on...so time will tell if the initial problem is fixed.

    Late to the party, I know, but I always use a gallon of gas and a road flare.

    Yes that's fine. reason it stoped working is because malware stripped w.e adware that changed your proxy settings. When the adware changed your proxy settings that means it was routing all your traffic through a 3rd party server and more then likely data mining it for credit cards and password.
