Hi, every time I go to youporn.com I get automatically re-directed to mobile.youporn. Obviously, this is useless since I'm not on a mobile device at the time. And yes, I know the dangers of surfing porn sites but in this case I do not think it's a virus issue. Everything seems clean and all other sites and functions work normally

This only happens on my laptop, not on the desktop. I have tried clearing the cache, clearing cookies, running malaware scans, restoring the system, rebooting, trying different browsers....no joy. Always an automatic redirect

Any tips are appreciated

<<...I do not think it's a virus issue.>>

I have to "admire"...a person with system problems and bad computing habits...that can make a statement like that :).

Discounting the fact that browser redirects...can typically be assumed to be a malware issue...and probed as such...just what do you think would cause such on your system?

Is browsing the only aspect that is impacted?

Did you try installing/using a different browser?

Try uninstalling/repairing your current browser?

Try a repair install of your O/S?

Try a clean install of your O/S?

I won't go into the prospect of hardware problems, since I am unaware of any correlation between just browsing...and hardware, with the exception of the networking device. If you suspect faulty hardware, I suggest trying a different networking device.
