Is this normal for the site, or do I have some sort of malware?

When reading the forum, for instance this thread, when I hover a link to newegg or such, the status bar shows the proper link like:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820167024

But when I click on it, or right click on it and save link address, it is this:

What is anrdoezrs.net? Why is this link voodoo happening?

I just ran kaspersky is, prevx, malwarebytes, etc and no infections.

  1. No it's not normal. I try and open the newegg link without problems.

    Try in safe mode on your rig.

    This is NOT your fault. It is this damn website. I was told it was fixed....

    I too had this problem until I disabled most of the scripts via NoScript.
  3. On another note, my post count keeps going up but not my points. Is there some kind of delay I never noticed before? Or is Tom's having issues?
  4. It seems to be having the normal end of the month malfunction.
  5. Cool. Thanks, aford
  6. hey, when is the points thing probably going to catch up? new month, still no new points....
  7. It used to be a couple days, last month is took about 2 weeks for everything to update.
  8. Wow. Why is that, do you know?
  9. I don't know for sure. But it seems that since they've rolled out this new ranking structure, there have been a lot of bugs with it. I think it's a process of working each one out. I get the impression that there is a lot of customized software involved.
