There is something wrong with my computer. I noticed at times pages on the
web are being redirected to pron sites. Now I've run anti-virus software,
every from ad-aware, spybot to AVG and also Firewall and noting is being
picked up. I do notice that when my firewall is on, the redirected page
comes up blank and not available but as soon as the firewall is off the
redirected page comes up as a porn site. So this is what tells me I have
something, but why hasn't 8 spyware softwares I use picked it up? Can
somebody please help me to rid of this pest?

It may be that it isn't your computers at all but the websites you are
going
to are set to re-direct to those pron sites. Try using "Hyjack This"
and see
if that helps you out.

To clarify, it is "hijackthis", and here is a page you paste in the
result of your scan, and get a machine-generated answer. You can also
download the application here:

I believe after 8 spyware programs (some of them perhaps rogue
anti-spyware apps) it's time to wipe it clean -- backup your data to
removeable media, insert original installation media, repartition,
reformat, and reinstall.

If you're on a Web site and you're being redirected somewhere, I would
say that it's the Web site that's doing the redirect.
