Default Please help me correct this problem when surfing Gamespot

Whenever I go to Gamespot's website, all pictures on that site are a picture of tablets:



And whenever I click on that picture i always get sent to this site:

http://www.online-meds.ws/

I've scanned my pc with the latest version of Ad-Aware Pro but it doesn't pick up any infected files on my comp. I'm also running Zone Alarm latest version too

Sounds like someone modified your hosts file.

Basically it has a list that looks like this... (with a fake example)

images.gamespot.com 127.0.0.1
badwebsite.images.com 127.0.0.1

Now, if someone modifies your hosts file, they can send you where *THEY* want you to go.

So, if their are files coming from images.gamespot.com and they want you to hit the medicine website, they put the IP address next to the images.gamespot.com website and instead of going there, you end up at the medicine website.

images.gamespot.com XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX (xxx's would equal the IP address to the medicine website)

I use the hosts file to remove content I don't want to see.

Ads and such. Put an entry to the ad server with 127.0.0.1 and you don't get ads from that address because 127.0.0.1 is not a valid address.
