All of my YouTube tabs randomly go to this link or similar: http://www.jumboquiz.com/jquiz/landing.php?uid=4523&lid=34614&sid=hoptopg&rid=87d27318ea709f12f49b959ff9a038ae
Does this happen to anyone else too???

Best Answer:

Matthew: This keeps happening to me to and it just started today. I don't know what it could be. I think it maybe because I don't have an anti-virus program on my pc to protect against pop ups and viruses. Or it could be something on with youtube site. Be careful if you don't have good protection on your computer it could be a virus. I plan to add an anti virus program on my computer tonight for good measure.

Other answer:

Matthew:
This usually happens when you intall freeware or maleware the internet. These software install some plugins on your browser without your permission which hijack your browser and redirect you to their site. So just uninstall any malware you must have installed unknowingly or any that you find suspicious. Remove any addons or plugins that you haven't installed knowingly. If that doesn't work then just try resetting your brower in the settings or just reinstall it. Every hijacker pluging/software has a different working mechanism so just google about it and see what other people with the same hijacker plugin or addon did to get rid of it

A normal antivirus and to reset the browser also uninstall all extensions and toolbars you have installed.
Miguel:
Your browser has been hijacked by a browser hijacker virus. I recommend installing Spybot: Search & Destroy, a normal antivirus (Such as Panda Antivirus), and to reset the browser. Also uninstall all extensions and toolbars you have installed.

You may have malware. Try scanning your computer with trusted applications. (Norton, McAffe etc)
