pca forums being hijacked

  sunnystaines 07:58 09 Jul 2014

cannot post on other forums only this one. the pages are being hijacked by a dark page called deour.com.

pca pages displays for about 2 secs then this dark page hijacks the screen anyone else got it.

norton reports deour as safe, perhaps might be an ad gone wrong but adblock plus does not block it. dare not visit deour.com in case its a bad site.

waiting for info reply in the thread from pca

I have no problems with W7;IE11 in any forum.

I had the same and used JRT to clear any problems, now all's well.

click here won't do any harm to run it, it only takes a minute or two and you'd be surprised what it clears out.

I'm getting it too on some threads when I open them. For example the OnePlus One Phone thread in Tech Consumer Advice click here

Got mine sorted, just blocked deour.com by adding a filter to AdblockPlus. Thread displays okay now.

For one moment thought I'd got a nasty, having same problems with this thing, can't call it an advert it's just taken over.

MechKB 2, I'm using Firefox and AdBlockPlus. I hardly ever use IE so haven't looked for or got an adblocker for IE. Maybe someone else has and will post.

  lotvic 09:56 09 Jul 2014

MechKB 2, my turn to ask you about IE. Which Adblocker have you got for it?

  carver 09:57 09 Jul 2014

I've got ad blocker on IE and still no luck, just keep getting directed to that @@@@@@@@@@@ site.

Any other site and would be running a full scan for a virus.

Speakers corner is now hopeless.

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
