Look at this site . www.dormitory.com . This site keeps opening on top of any other site i open from time to time. Sometimes it dont happen for 2-3 days. The next day it happens 20 times. I tried contacting the site owners but didnt managed to (the site looks normal ). someone having the same problem ?

The problem is not at the website's end but your own PC which may be infected with virus/trojan or other nasty. Perform appropriate anti-virus and spyware scans as well as clearing out temporary internet files ( including offline content) If the problem persists then a scan with HijackThis followed by analysis of the resulting log and corrective action may help. Note. Do not post a HJT log here. Visit http://www.hijackthis.de/index.php?... and paste your logfile into the box.

Thank you. I searched about spyware viruses and stuff but nothing. I will post the hijack log . But why a virus will open only one page that has nothing to do with them?

"I will post the hijack log"

DO NOT post that here!
See response 1.

There is no one who answers here who specializes in analyzing those, the webmaster of this site does not want them posted here, and this topic (thread) may be DELETED if you do post the log!

Do you have IE 8 installed?
If so, your problem is a known bug in IE 8.
IE 8 is beta software, not a final version - it still has bugs in it.

It definitely sounds like a virus of some kind, or even a
piece of malware that's attached on to the browser.

A lot of hackers go for this kind of attack as a way of
getting commission from affiliate offers, or even click
through click gains.

You could try a different browser (IE is terrible for falling
foul of malware like this), or go through and get rid of the
spyware and malware manually.

Hope that helps. =)
