This is what comes up on Google for redirectingat . com If you have had any dealings with on-line publishing, then maybe it is genuine - otherwise do your scans again in safe mode and delete anything found. If nothing found by scanning then do a search for 'redirecting' if anything shows, delete it from within the search window.

PS - if it is only showing in PCA (this site), then perhaps you should contact Forum Editor for an explanation.

By FE on page 2 of the 2nd link:

WNothing sinister is afoot.

Redirect services are widely used by online publishers as a way to generate useful revenue without having to resort to intrusive banner ads.

Apart from ourselves, companies like John Lewis, Selfridges, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Currys, and many more use the service. It's totally harmless."

They're ad-related & what keeps the forum like ours running for free. G
