One of the best ways to deal with this is to use Firefox browser, not IE.
After installing Firefox, open "add ons."
download and install "adblockplus." (which is a firefox approved add on.)
After that, expect that malware, installed by flash ads, will be stopped.
It's quite effective.

Actually, that problem wasn't related to advertisements at all and your fix wouldn't help in this case, as it was a code insertion directly into the web page.

I do know the problem you are referring to though, and I encountered it when we briefly explored using the OpenX Market for advertising, about 2 years ago. The ad quality was bad and some ads were dodgy and apparently carried malware. We quickly switched that off and went back to trusty old Google, and have not have a problem since, as they are stringent in qualifying their advertising partners.

Whenever I hit the back button on any diyaudio.com page my virus software stops the attempted redirection to a porn site, any one have a similar problem?

Afa - In the event nobody else reports this problem, I'd say your browser (and likely your OS) has been hijacked by some malware. In which case, it's time to re-format and reinstall your OS.

Unfortunately this happened to me on a machine equipped with XP and the only solution finally was to reformat the HD, each time IT attempted to remove it it came back.. In this case the source was definitely not diyAudio and it happened with any site I initially navigated to.

I got a hijack as well (from a kids site I was browsing with my daughter of all places), was on firefox and ie (XP). But it was different it hijacked google searches and went to some advertising site. I downloaded malwarebytes antimalware and it got rid of it (with a little encouragement, I think I had to use some of the advanced feautures in the program in safe mode (from memory the setting for deleting locked files), but it got rid of the infection. Worth a try before resorting to a format

I have however had a lot of pc's past me (from friends) that the only solution was a disk wipe (I use dban to be sure) and complete re-install.

my usual approach is - infected disk as slave on my main PC , scan with KAV2010 , file backup ,clean install with C partition prior deleting

in case that system is functional after cleaning , there is no need for re-install , of course

Where to start? Done malwarebytes, Norton power eraser, uninstalled norton internet security, reinstalled norton internet security, nothing found, if I use a stored ie8 bookmark for diyaudio.com it loads up but it also try's to load a porn site (it doesnt open it, it just flashes up on the status bar, it just makes the back button on the diyaudio site highlighted, so if I click on the back button it just repeats the attempted load of the porn site but still displays the diyaudio site, is it really a virus? should I worry about it? If I type in the diyaudio address manually some times it does the same thing sometimes not, but when I use a bookmark link for diyaudio it happens straight away, is it worth worrying about? BUT!! when it has happened and I do something like looking at another site and then going back to the diyaudio site It doesnt go to the attempted porn site redirection, should I not worry about it? or should I wait till something happens then panic or should I reinstall windows 7 (I tried firefox and the problem is still there)
