    Hey everyone. I'm not sure if this is intentional, but my browser keeps redirecting to websites like this: http://advertising.ezanga.com/
    and Google for some reason. Every page I go to on IPTF will load, then just turn into some weird page I didn't click on. This is the only site it does it on. I don't know if this is some kind of ad thing, but is anyone else having this problem?

    You have a virus, or trojan. It's redirecting you to an advertisement site to make money.

    It's strange that it is only happening on this site. It has been redirecting me to Google for some reason, and when I loaded this reply page, it redirected me to some pornography site for the first time. Something is obviously screwed up.

    I keep getting pop ups that say I am infected by a virus. It only happens when I visit ifans.com

    I know I'm not infected! I run NOD32, Windows Defender and a secure router.

    It can't be that iPodtouchFans is infecting computers with malware and viruses. Bgizzle would never put other peoples computer's in danger. The infection is probably not being seen by your computer protection.

    I have done some preliminary checks with our advertising providers and so far I have found nothing that would be causing this. If you can take screenshots of the page right before this happens next time, or perhaps put a list of exact URLs that you are being redirected to, I can try to track this down some more.

    I don't understand what "this" is. Did you read the thread before posting?
