The last week or so when I get on the site, no matter which forum I'm looking at, If I try to scroll down it will make me go to the bottom of the page where the ads are.

This is very annoying.

I first thought it was on my end, mouse etc. but it only happens on AK.

Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this?

Not spyware either as I'm clean there.

Occasionally lately I can't go backwards. I start in the main forums, then go to "general" or "solid state" etc...then can't go back to the main forum page by clicking my "back" button.
I guess I have noticed a couple times where it lags loading a page then flies down to the ads.

There's been something about that recently, check your history as well, make sure nothing snuck in there. Here (http://www.audiokarma.org/forums/showthread.php?t=387751) is a topic in which some other members (myself included) have had that happen, and sometimes it deposits a link in the history, but it doesn't seem to do much besides that. I think it may be an issue with one of the ads running something in the background (seent hat many times), but i'm no expert.

Edit: may want to post in that topic with specifics if you do in fact have the same thing happening, just to see if we can narrow it down and such.

I've had the back button issue here as well as a couple of other forums. If you click on the back button dropdown arrow, you will see several instances of googleads before the return to the previous page. I've done a little checking on the 'net and what little info I can find points to a poorly written script routine, maybe in the googleads site itself, that is not properly referencing the last page visited. (FF may not allow the same script to run, dunno)

Appears to be a script of some sort.

At least I've found that when scripting is disabled, it doesn't do it.

This has always been a pretty clean site as far as speed and ease of use.
Hope it stays that way.

IE 8 for me... at work.

The back button issue isn't all the time.. hit or miss... same with being dumped at the bottom of the page.

The back button issue is an admanager link, but unknown(nothing unuasual in history) what the hell is making my browser go directly to the bottom every page on AK. ONLY AK! And it's started within the last week.

I even went so far as to wipe IE 8 off and start with a fresh copy. NO JOY.

You are onto something here. I checked my history and livejasmin showed up everyday plus last weeks history. I ran adaware and manually deleted livejasmin from my history log and everything was fine the rest of yesterday.
Today I come here and can't use back button again, check history, sure enough there's livejasmin again. So it appears it must be related.

As is the experience of some others, I am having no problems.Thus is there anything for AK to fix,or is there an issue with the settings/system of the affected computers?

If it were an AK generated problem,we would all experience it when we access AK.When I access AK I have no problems whatsoever.This problem thus does not automatically ride upon the back of visiting AK for certain.

I read something within the past 2 or 3 days which claimed that IE 8 was substantially more secure than Firefox.On the back of that claim I was considering running IE 8.Ths testimony here of the IE 8 users who are experiencing this glitch has definitely made me shy of any involvement with IE 8.Firefox works fine.I don't get spammed(I lie.I get one every two or three days).Firefox addons provide some amazing extensions which allow one a ton of control over what elements display on a page and ways of removing individual elements(ads banners etc etc) as one chooses.

The grass may just be greener, right where I am.

I don't think it's a glitch with IE8 itself, but rather I think it's a script from the ad hosting site. FF is not allowing the script to run or runs it differently.

This has gotten much worse over the last couple days.

At first, it was occasionally when I first accessed the site.
Now it does it EVERYTIME and even EVERYTIME I click on a different posting to read it.

I know that I can change my IE characteristics, but would have to continually change them back for other sites that are less "self serving."

If this keeps up, I just may not spend much time here anymore.

We're performing a scan of the site at this moment. If there is a problem on our end we will fix it immediately.

As I have mentioned in the past we have maintained clean servers for over 8 years. I am not saying we're perfect but we try dang hard. Again even if it is on our site then it was an attack by someone else, and not of this site's doing.

Please remember that our site is rather large. The scan will take quite some time. I will post an update when our scans our done.

Switching the Internet security to "high" prevents Java scripts from running. I suspect there is a poorly written script in the external site that hosts the ads that run in the background, so by stopping JS, the poor script doesn't execute.

In IE8: You can go to other sites on the 'net and go back to the Internet settings, then add the other sites to your "trusted sites" and set the security setting for that site to medium or medium high, that will let java run on those sites.

I have not tried the opposite: it may be possible to set AK as a trusted site, but with High security just for AK, while making the default Internet setting as medium or medium high (dunno which will override which).

I think rather than adding AK to the trusted zone and increasing the security, I'd add it to the restricted zone which is by default high security, then leave the Internet zone at the standard/default setting.

This is what I just did and seems to have the same net effect on AK without screwing up other sites activity.

This has gotten much worse over the last couple days.

At first, it was occasionally when I first accessed the site.
Now it does it EVERYTIME and even EVERYTIME I click on a different posting to read it.

I know that I can change my IE characteristics, but would have to continually change them back for other sites that are less "self serving."

If this keeps up, I just may not spend much time here anymore.

Self serving wow what a rude comment, this is not the sites fault or the admins. Please don't spend anytime here with that kind of attitude, this is the least self serving site I know of. Now back to all audio no attitude. Thanks to all admins for getting this back up.

Since there are no ads of any kind, and my browser has returned to normal, too, I wonder what is left that is making your browser jump?

I run AdAware and Avast, and got clean readings, once the site was shut down. It has stayed clean, and trouble-free. The script error disappeared, for me. It has not returned, again, for me. You might want to contact Wardsweb, since he is trying to resolve this. Your error might provide the key information for him.

Huh? Strange.

I've restored all my settings to default and everything seems to be back to normal. No livejasmin so far and no page jumping.

Might I suggest downloading and running CCleaner if you haven't already? It could be something stuck in a cache or cookie somewhere.

I ran scan after scan of several different products when I was having problems and not one reported anything on my computer.

I use the three major browsers at different locations. I use Chrome at home because after trying it I simply forgot to go back to IE. There was just no motive.

It was the second time I'd tried it. The first time it seemed lacking in important features.

I use FireFox at work so I can support an alternative for those users who seem to attract viruses.

IE 6 and 7 seemed to be virus magnets. I haven't seen many with 8. I have limited experience with 9.

A few years ago I had the job of making a fairly complex website display the same with the four top browsers (Opera included). That was painful. Management insisted on having the text wrap at exactly the same places.

FWIW, as I and others have said, we found no evidence of actual malware on our computers from either the livejasmin thing or the page jumping thing.

That said, any time a script can make a program do things (which is sorta the whole point of a script, and of computers) I'd have to image there is some level of security risk, greater or lesser. Do I think my computer has been compromised because of these recent events? No.

Have you tried clearing your cache, cookies etc.

I do the following on each bootup.

Scandisk during bootup.

DELETE HISTORY, COOKIES, Temp Files, then turn off browser.

Run CCleaner Registry and application cleaner 3 times to ferret out left overs.

Adaware FULL SCAN

AVAST FULL SCAN

spybot FULL SCAN

I've adjusted security settings to default levels, then incrementally increased until the problem went away on MAX Settings. but this leaves me no way to make changes in CP, or other things that are blocked.

I continue to get scripting errors, I presume they are scripting errors!?!?(left bottom corner) that ALL have to do with amazon and pictures. ALL of THEM.

This is on every page I bring up on AK. A lot of the time the progress bar will hang about 1/2 way and sit there. When I either change page or post, it goes away and the process starts over again.

I've deleted java from the machine, ran all the above diagnostics, then reloaded the newest version onboard. Also have removed IE8 and re-installed. Still having the problem here.

It's more irritating than anything else, I guess can live with it.

I've never had the "live.jasmine" in the history, cookies, etc.

Suggestion: Dump the Google banner ads (even temporarily) to see if the problem goes away--otherwise some nefarious operation may have embedded code in the site via those ads. I'm on my Mac at home. Windows & IE8 seems to be the weak point with what ever this is.

I run Win 7, 64 bit and IE8 at work. Never have had any page jumping issues there except some weirdness with Adobe Acrobat, that manifests in somewhat of a page jumping situation albeit different than what was happening here. Seems to be some strange interaction between the Adobe program and drivers for the computer video card. Disabling 2D graphics acceleration in Acrobat mitigated that symptom, however.
