Anyone else getting this problem on virtually every page?
Clearly off-topic, but nowhere easy to post technical issues.

Page loads then some sort of ad is searched out which cannot be found and the page redirects to a whole 404 error.
Using IE7.

This is one of the pages that I get redirected to that doesn't exist:
http://www.google.co...ecode=yes;link=

Only way round it is to hit the "stop" button when most of the page has loaded.

I get the same problem trying to load that page. But why would I want to load it again...

Sounds like a homepage hijacker, or a malware pop-up inserter that's gone wrong. You need to have a good clean out with some of the anti-virus/malware/adware tools.

Hi,

Looking at the URL I think you may well be infected with spyware which is hijacking your browser links.

A quick shufty on google led me to here:

http://www.zomocainc...-popup-spyware/

ad.yieldmanager.com is the nasty I am taking a wild ass guess at you being infected with.

No problems here.

Hope it helps,

TFH

try installing firefox, anti virus and ad-aware
I have bought a newish (5 years) house in November 2006. I talked the vendor down 30% off peak 2004 price am am paying less than the 2002 price. I feel prices will continue to drop down to the 2001 price but saving for 5 years hopefully means i wont be stung. The price i am paying isn't much above the price the vendor paid for the place when it was new in 2000. However some idiot is trying to flog an identical house on my road for 55k above the price i paid, one month later!?!?! The housing market is frothy, no-one ever knows what the value of a house is, the value is what someone is willing to pay, make sure you pay alot less than the asking price.

Install firefox:

load the adblock plus (ABP) addon. Go to tools, add-ons, it should be top of the list

It is very likely that you have some malware. I personally stay clear of Internet Explorer as much as possible. Apart from the odd bank and www.selftrade.co.uk websites that demand that you use this browser, I prefer to use Firefox or Opera when surfing the 'net. These browsers are faster, use less RAM and have a lot less security flaws. If you are interested in privacy then it is good idea to wipe your cookies too. I use CCLEANER for this too.

No malware as far as I can tell.

Everything works fine on my mac and my linux box (running Mozilla), just happen to be using the machine in my study that runs windows and IE. Where are these extra cookies coming from???
