Hi, sorry for the delay in getting back to you but I have been following up n something.
One of the main sites I keep getting re-directed to is an italian cabinetmakers and I mentioned this to one of my friends a couple of days ago and he said it had also happened to him on his iPhone
I then asked about 10 other people I know and 4 of them said they had experienced the same kind of redirection within the last few weeks where when they clicked on a link and it went to a blank page that said the site had moved and they were being re-directed and they went to the italian cabinetmakers site, also other sites as well.
None of these poeple have ever swapped disks, files, programs or usb with me, ever.
Some also said it had happened on their phones as well.
Could this be endemic to the internet and not a straight forward browser hijack ?
