I confirm. It may also depend on the browser used or something.

It doesn't occur EVERY time I visit the same page. It's a spontaneous occurrence, and has only happened two or three times so far.

It may be some hidden spyware. Try installing a second spyware detection program and run another scan. Often, Spyhunter program X will not see everything, but Y will see what X have missed. And vice-versa.

If you hadn't already, try AD-AWARE The free version is quite powerful and hunt spywares without mercy.

A great anti-virus is AVAST. The free version is not cheap at all, is extremely effective, and it won't slow down your computer. It's been years since I started using it.

So, for me, Avast as the main anti-virus and Ad Aware as a back-up work very well. Try one, or try both. You may find a few nasty creepy crawlers that you missed before.

This has happened to me too, on multiple computers at multiple sites. I figured it was a script in some of the Google ads. I have been running multiple Malware scanners, including one I highly favor, Malwarebytes, and all is clean at this time. It is very intermittent.

It only seems to happen on Google Chrome for me. I'm considering switching to Firefox for some of the script blocking...

Been using Mozilla Firefox and I also kept getting redirected to these other web sites mentioned here. Think the Spyware or adware might have nested itself inside the browser cache or cookies.

Might I make a suggestion that so far worked for me. Try deleting the Browser your using from your uninstall computer programs section. Click restart, Then after the computer starts back up, go to a site and reinstall the browser again.

Update: Mystery solved! Looks like this was, indeed, something wrong with the Google AdSense. Is that what you were/are using, Ryan?

Is anybody else starting to see the intermittent advertising re-direct again? I'm using Google Chrome...

I saw something similar to it happen for me on a different site than this one, but instead of redirecting to a variety of advertisement websites, it would instead keep redirecting to the same place.

But instead of being another advertising website, it was this time a software site claiming that my Google Chrome browser software was not fully up-to-date, and insisted that I click its link immediately to upgrade to the latest software versions.

I refused to do so each time, however, and simply uninstalled and re-installed Google Chrome, which seems to have fixed the issue on my end.

Indeed, it appears that Google has patched the Chrome browser recently. Since I updated, the redirect isn't happening anymore.

I recommend if anyone sees such a message about the browser being out of date or gets redirected to an advertising site that you kill the browser in the task manager and then run the update from the About Google Chrome menu option in the tools menu. Or uninstalling and re-installing should also solve the issue.

Thanks, Sabrblade!
