2. Bad advice!!
>>"hijacked" Click on the "slideshow" ...omg... I was trying to show it to someone, 'cause it's an awesome slideshow and ugh! Is anybody else getting this crap? What the hell<<

Don't ever ever ever tell ANYONE to go to a website that has been compromised... NEVER NEVER NEVER. It's a good way to make a lot of people angry at you. Now you need to do a complete scan of your computer... and hope you haven't picked anything up... especially if you run Windoze.

The smartest thing and the most responsible thing to do is to send an email to the webmaster of the particular site in question.

and let me be REAL CLEAR

I was NOT suggesting someone go to the site to pick up anything...I was wondering if anyone had had the same experience. And as for as the link to his site it's fine...

and YES I did a virus check immediately afterwards

You may have a virus or a trojan that hijacks your browser...

that makes me mad...don't people have anything else better to do than hijack computers :eyes:

I'm still trying to figure out how this happened. I never go to websites that are "fishy"...mainly I stay at DU except for mail.
