Extra web page opening when I click on a news item

  • No replies
  • 4 have this problem

Hi, Sometimes, when I click on a news item if I am in, say, News.com, the web page for that item opens but another web page tries to open as well, but is blocked by McAfee Security Scan Plus asking me if I really want to go to that site, as it is dangerous. I cannot say whether it is always the same site, but the latest site it told me to get out of was uwavou.com/sc?p=.......... with a lot of letters and characters following the == sign. I have AVG anti-virus and a paid version of Malwarebytes installed and neither find anything when they run. Thanks, Barry
