    Hey Wilders,

    If you google search dcsportbikes.net(Legit motorcycle forum) and then click on the link, does it redirect you to the dollaradedotcom/adblock website? It tells you to turn off any adblock add ons. I'm using firefox with adblock plus. I'm assuming that forum uses ads provided by dollarade or something?

    It doesn't happen if you type in dcsportbikes.net directly into the URL bar though. I know I'm not infected with malware.

    Your thoughts? and reply back if it happens to any of you guys. Thanks.

    Redirects to FileStore123.info a file hosting site.

    Of course it told me that the file I had been looking for may have been moved for breaking the rules :)

    Then went on to try and talk me into using Online Backup Services a product which judging by the write up is capable of saving the planet:D

    Not in the same way as you I guess.

    I use Opera sandboxed.

    Perhaps this WOT scorecard result would help get you going in the right direction.

    If I read your obfuscated link correctly.

    I was in Firefox sanboxed. I posted it up on the forum directly and told them about the problem. Another person said it happened to them so an ad on that forum probably got hijacked as it rotated advertisements.
