Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I just recently rid myself of the bogus Win 7 2012 antivirus program, and now I seem to have some kind of redirect thing.
What's happening is that, as I browse the forums or youtube or whatever, my browser will spontaneously open one or more tabs to various other locations, some of which seem to be pages I've visited in the past (I'm guessing it's looking at my browser history or cache file?), but most of which seem to be blogs and poorly executed video-news sites. As far as I can tell the most common redirect is a site called "News Canary," which I have never visited before of my own accord.
Other weird things going on include rkill.com (that's a DOS app, not a website) terminating "ituneshelper" and another apparently apple-related process as 'known malware processes' and malwarebytes not turning up any infected files on a full scan. My searches of tech support forums only turn up one other case of this happening to somebody and apparently the mods there thought it would be more practical to lock the thread and solve it via PM. So no info for me.
Has anybody else encountered this? What's the culprit? I don't see any suspicious processes in my task manager or anything.
e: The win 7 2012 thing was the first time I've had any kind of problem with this computer whatsoever. And now this makes two issues in as many days. Is there some utility that will allow me to scan my computer for likely vulnerabilities? Maybe I've just neglected an update somewhere?
