when you're on a website with numerous gallerys on it, and you click on one of the gallerys to look at whats inside, but the site that opens is a completely new and unrelated website. how do you stop this and why does it happen?

You cannot "Stop" this.

The reason it opens up as a completely new website is because some galleries on websites are linked to other galleries on other webpages.

You can't do anything about it, since it depends on what website you are accessing. Understand?

If you'd use a popup blocker, that wouldn't do any better.
If you'd click on a gallery to see what's inside, and it wouldn't open in the same window - rather in a new one, then the popup blocker would just prevent it from opening.

Make sense?

hey thanks

im using internet explorer, if i switch to firefox will it work?

no but the thing is, if i try it maybe 5 or 6 times then the 6th time it will open up the gallery i want, so it cant be just that the gallery isnt there and it is forwarding me to the new site every time. u understand?

cheers

So are you saying when you click a link or gallery it(your browser) takes you somwhere other than where the link or gallery points? If your answer is yes you may have a low level browser HiJack. Just a thought.

ok. say im in a site where theres a huge gallery of thumbnails. if i click on a thumbnail i will go to a gallery. sometimes though when i click on a gallery i get taken to a whole new site, other times it works fine. it is random and is not the same gallery each time. does this mean i have a mild form of hijacking? if so, how do i clear it out? thanks a lot

If you would like to wipe your HD and start fresh that is completly up to you as it is your machine and you can do what you like with it. However, we do not suggest wiping out your machine for a quick fix as not all malwares and such reside on the hard drive so to speak. It would be best for you to go where suggested by Rawe go through the process especially the CLICK HERE process as this will clean up about 70% of all issues on your machine. If you do all of that and then are still having problems then post the HiJack This log in that thread and an expert will help you shortly. Once you have a clean bill of health from the malware experts you should then wipe out your HD if you so desire. If you don't wipe out your HD and problems still persist after getting a clean bill of health repost to THIS thread and we will be much obliged to help you further.

On a side note, If you haven't already you really should look into Mozilla's collection of web utilities. Firefox along with Thunderbird (Mozillas EMail client) work together seamlessly and even better than IE and Outlook. Then of course theres always the Mozilla Suite with Email incorporated directly into the browser itsself. You could also try Opera's Browser.
