  1. Seems a lot of people are having problems with this redirect.

    I'm using Win 7 with the latest Firefox and a number of security and privacy ad ons.
    Also Zone Alarm free firewall, AdAware free anti virus, CCleaner, MalwareBytes paid,
    Spybot S&D. Have repeatedly scanned using all of these and nothing found.

    I've read that it's some kind of malware.

    Anybody know how to stop it?

    What happens is that when I try to do the "Read More" on a Yahoo news article,
    it won't connect to the rest of the article. Have temporary "allowed" all the things
    on the NoScript drop down and tried opening in a new tab. No luck.

    Very frustrating. Can anyone tell me what it is and how to stop or get rid of it?

    Thanks!
