    i haven't seen anything like that, sounds like the issue may be at your end.

    Definitely not my end as this only happens on this site and has only been happening for about a week
    my antivirus blocks the site loading and tells me it's a fake tech support website 295

    Definitely not the site, if a redirection was in place all users would experience issues.

    To date nobody has indicated anything untoward.

    Look at your AV solution, has something triggered it from the site, any upgrades etc.

    Pretty sure this has come up before and was the users end ie malware of some description.

    What ever you do don't click through or you will probably find yourself locked out of your computer and hostage to a blackmail attempt to extract money from you to decrypt your files. Run a good malware detector/anti virus program.

    Have disabled the link so no one accidentally gets something they don't want.

    When it happens i have not clicked on anything all i have done is open the justcommodores website from my favorites menu click on the new posts button and it just randomly changes the web page to the one i linked or one like it.
    My av doesn't allow the page to open if it was my end it would happen on every site i go to and it would happen every time i come here but that is not the case it is a very rare occurrence as it has happened twice on here in the last week and i am on here at least 6 or more times a day i just never sign in unless i have something to post.

    @immortality sorry about that i should have placed a space in the address to render it inactive

    Just thought of something i doubt it will be my end unless it is some bullshit to do with windows 10 because i upgraded to that 2 months ago

    That was the whole point of my warning even if nobody else comes across it i would rather put it out there and have everyone aware and not have somebody else maybe without my level of AV getting caught because i have no idea where that link goes to

    My suggestion is to download a 30 day free trial of Kaspersky Internet Security if you have a an issue with this site,
    Do a full scan on your PC, then if you don't think you need it, un-install it,
    As you would be surprised how many people do not run ANY PC security on their machines,
    I am a re-seller for Kaspersky, and have done for the past 11 years, so If you wish to purchase a full version licence, please PM me.

    This site has been stable for the past 5 years that I have been a member.

    I would still recommend a malware scan. I use Malwarebytes.

    thanks for that but i am fully covered with my current AV
    to tell the truth even though i have only joined recently i have been around on this site for 10 years maybe even longer and never had any issues until this but like i said even if nobody else finds anything i would rather people be aware

    Try malwarebytes, antivirus software doesn't pick up everything...

    I always start on the 'new posts' button, but have never been re-directed.

    Kaspersky isn't just Anti Virus, its as it says, "Internet Security" its block suspicious sites from being able to download software in the background, and also blocks emails and attachments that can damage your PC.

    Probably wouldn't hurt to delete your shortcut/links in case something has hijacked em and create a couple of new ones. Also clear your cache.

    Having issues too. Keeps redirecting me to fake mobile/Telstra sites and becoming VERY annoying. Just started a couple of days ago on iPhone. Haven’t come across any other sites that do this.

    I have had problems too. My Norton's on my laptop sometimes blocks the site for no apparent reason. This has been going on for a week to 10 days. I log out of the net and go back in no issues at all. Next time it happens I will try and remember to grab a screenshot.
