Being re-directed from I-Club with ads

Anybody else getting the same thing? I would be browsing the forums (or a thread) and all of a sudden I get re-directed to an ad website. Did not click on any ads either. Only happens on I-club and my anti-virus program doesn't show any malware or viruses.

Im not having issues with i-club, but had similar issues with youtube and google. Updated my anti-virus program and havent had an issue since.

Everything is updated.

If it helps any, I was using Google Chrome and wasn't logged in when I was re-directed.

Tried using Firefox for 5 minutes browsing the forums and haven't been re-directed yet.

Hi,

If that happens again and you have time, please copy the redirect URL. The techs can check to see if it was a non logged in mouse over ad link or other. Thanks!

msncoll.com

I was re-directed to a survey site as well, but don't remember the address.

Hey guys,

The techs took a close look at the code and can't find any malicious entries. Google the URL and there are instructions to remove it if your browser is infected. Thanks!

Though I am now using Firefox to browse I-club, I still get redirects using Chrome. I've uninstalled Chrome twice to no effect. Not a big deal now since I'm using Firefox, but just thought I'd let you know.
