    Default diverting from Bleeding cool

    Over the past week or so almost everytime I load up the Bleeding Cool site I'm diverted to one of a number of webpages with various offers. Is this intentional or something more dubious?

    It's definitely not something we're doing.

    What hardware & browser are you using to surf? Can you give me an example of some sites you're being diverted to?
    This is another test.

    Im using IE9 on a vista laptop, AVG security.( firewall, pop up blocker etc) The sites are all you've just won, enter your email now sites. Only happens on visits to Bleeding cool no other sites are effected. Sorry I cant be more helpful. I dont really stay on the sites long enough to note any more details I normally just hit the back button. It only seems to be the first visit that this happens.

    If you're able to try visiting here on another computer at some point, I'd be curious to know if it still happens.

    If it doesn't happen on another computer, you might also take a look at your hosts file:

    Or more generally:
