    As requested, I whitelisted TCF in my adblocker.

    But now I find that I'm being taken away from TCF to a new site (the URL can be different each time). I turn adblocker back on and it stops, this happens when TCF isn't the active tab, I'll be reading something else and then click the tab for here and find myself elsewhere - image below:

    I really don't want to enable ad blocking for this site, but this is getting intolerable.

    I'm guessing it's not my compute because it only ever happens on the tab in which TCF is displayed.

    If you document the URL here David should be able to block it.

    Thank you. The URL can be different each time, should I just update this thread with each new one?

    Just happened. The URL is http:// retailboy.com /?4a88feb0615c1305f31fcdde194cf461

    EDIT: I added a couple of spaces as it just said 'error' otherwise

    Another one for retailnatural but with a different hexadecimal thing at the end. I assume that isn't needed?

    These all seem similar and others are not reporting them, are you 100% sure your system is clean of malware?

    I'm never really 100% sure of anything, but I've done online scans with Panda and Eset and one with MalwareBytes. It only ever happens in a tab in which TCF is loaded - wouldn't that be a pretty niche form of malware?

    Probably a data point I should have mentioned - I'm in the UK, one of very few these days - no idea if that matters in terms of black/whitelists
