Hi , every once in a while when browsing the forums I'll get redirected to a fake flash update website, which I assume is malware. You probably don't a direct link on the site so here is a pastebin with the URL I'm getting redirected to. http://pastebin.com/vVKvwezm The Giant Bomb forums seem to be the only place this happens.

Run an anti-spyware tool, could be something installed on your system.

Almost guaranteed to be some sort of malware. You should scan the shit out of your computer.

Pour hydrogen peroxide on it too, just to be safe.

Perform what this article tells you to do to the letter: http://malwaretips.com/blogs/malware-removal-guide-for-windows/

And I do mean follow EVERY STEP TO THE LETTER IN THAT ORDER. Otherwise it's like taking incomplete antibiotics treatment.

Many modern forms of these rotten programs reinstall themselves every time you reboot your pc so it's essential to thoroughly delete them.

Sounds like your system has some malware. Could be a hosts hijack, browser homepage hijack, or a million other things. As others say, run some malware programs. Personally, I like Spy Bot, and MalwareBytes.

Good luck!
