So i use this forum and extreme overclocking forum too. It comes up as a porn site when i go there. On any other computer it comes up as a forum like it should. What do i have to do? Is that spyware, adware, or a virus or something?

Why is this in the Hardware forum?

Which is the site that leads up to a porn site? Maybe they use a name that is really similar to the name of the site.

Eg.

www.techist.com is this site.

They can post names like this, and it would lead to their fake sites:

www.tech-forums.com
www.tech-forums.ca
www.techforums.com
www.techforums.net

and so on.

That is the website and it still doesn't come up so i have no clue what to do. I will not format cause i got too much on this 300gb hard drive. Its almost full. Its mostly dvd's that i own: all james bond dvd collection and Doom which i just put on my computer so the discs doesn't get bad fast.
