Whenever I go to the Crochet-along listing, after about 15 seconds, it refreshes with the following site http://www.firststreetonline.com/category.jsp?id=55867&promotion=81996&gclid=CI2QkLC_yIsCFScrYQod2H-2EQ

I don't know if it's happening to other pages, but I thought I'd let y'all know.

Most likely, its because you have a virus on your computer. Is it a specific post that does it, or just the entire crochet along board? If its not a link you click within a crochetalong, its definitely a virus on your computer

Just be glad you dont have the porn one where every third link turns into a porn link!

You probably have spyware or adware on your computer... it can slow it down and also redirects you to sites you don't want to look at.

There are programs to get rid of it, I use www.adaware.com and www.spybot.com

Hope that helps!

I knew I needed to re-scan my pc soon Tongue
Kind of odd that it only happens to me on craftster, though. The spyware wants to make with the sweet sweet loves to the craftster.. awww. Tongue
