For the last couple days I've been getting a redirect issue when on VN. Redirects to the damn MacKeeper software solicitation - leaves VN to go to this page.

Doesn't happen all the time and only on one computer so I probably have something (adware) that's interacting with how VN does ads.

Ran a Malware program but it didn't find anything.

Just posting this to see if it happens to anyone else or if anyone has any ideas on making it stop.

Same here. I only get it on this site and a hockey message board. been happening for a couple weeks I think. I clear my cache and cookies but that doesn't seem to help.

desktop for me. It's a complete hijack. Click to open a forum and boom your browser goes to one of those MacKeeper ads.

Happened in Google Chrome and Safari.

Can you paste the link where it takes you? I’ve been on desktop all day and haven’t been able to duplicate it.
