    Default Gabe??

    This is something that has been happening for about 3-4 days for me almost everytime I come here and I am not sure why, all I know is it happens on FV and always opens in the tab that FV was open in.

    I have no idea if it is my computer or something with FV....

    I never let the scan complete, I just get right out of it, thinking it may be a virus...

    You can see the link on the bottom grey bar of the picture where it says waiting for fv

    Looks like your computer is hijacked/spyware/malware.
    If you look at the screenshot your actually going to another website.

    Look at the IP. That has nothing to do with frugalvillage.com
    I would highly recommend that you get your computer checked. I checked the IP you have in the browser and it attempts to hijack my computer.


    Looks like the virus you have is intercepting your connection too. Do not go to that IP address you have listed in your URL!

    I had to kill my browser as it started downloading executable from that website. (Luckily I'm running a MAC and .exe files do nothing on my machine, but it did hose my browser session)

    I would disconnect the computer from the internet and get it fixed.

    More info specific to your issue here.
