I have ie 9.

A symptom shows up frequently when I hit the Back button:

The website doesn't change and when you right click the button it is always some flavor of doubleclick.net

 

I have researched this somewhat but I only see old explanations.

 

I edited the hosts file but it came back.

 

How do I rid myself of this annoyance?

 

Thanks so much.

Have you tried using IE restricted sites as mentioned here by seamon53?

Do you use an ad blocker?

@jhayz: I will try it.  I have these already (this is c/p from hosts file, but I now put them also in ie):

 

127.0.0.1         ad.doubleclick.net

127.0.0.1         googleads.g.doubleclick.net

127.0.0.1         adsafeprotected.com

127.0.0.1         fw.adsafeprotected.com

127.0.0.1         simpli.fi

 

@frankp: No, I don't use one.

 

I always have kept a really clean pc; so I don't know if I picked this phenomenon up somehow, being careless; or if it's an unsealed exploit.

 

Thanks for both your help!

Finally had to dl avg.

It got rid of lhonhmag, whatever that is.  I thought I had rid myself of it previously, but I had clearly failed.

 

I hope that will help.

Now I will have to uninstall avg because it is such a dog on an old computer.

Does anybody know how to get rid of this annoyance?

 

The suggestions on this thread have been tried.

 

Thanks.

And yes, I was googling a shoehorn.

Clear your browser history and or cache files. I don't usually right-click the back button when going back to previously accessed site since its just one/two or more pages back from the currently web page I'm on.

Just to clarify:

I use the Back button all the time.

The picture shows a right-click only to demonstrate that the browser is making pit stops at one or more of these (and other) sites before accessing the actual page I'm going to. The picture shows that I clicked what turned out to be a dead link out of a google search and now I am trying to go back to the search.

So, it happens invisibly when I click a link, and I suppose it is logging traffic to those ads, but when I go to use the browser's Back button, I may find myself waiting because the current page won't visibly change, then I realize that one or more of these "pit stops" got into my browser history.

 

I have tried clearing history and cache.

 

I would like to know what is causing this. I don't have it on my other machine.

 

I reject changing browsers or reinstalling Windows 7 if possible (though I have never reinstalled Windows in 3.5 years on this machine).

Tried it.

Didn't work.

 

I'm really surprised more people aren't whining about this.

 

It has started on my brand new computer, where I never have gone to any "questionable" web sites nor loaded any "questionable" software.

And my brand new office laptop did it right out of the gate.  Doubtful that IT Dept. would have allowed something on there.

 

My new computer has DOZENS of links to doubleclick.net in the back button -- too many to count.

 

Either I'm the only person who uses the "BACK" button in IE9 and IE10 or just got unlucky three times out of three.

 

"They've" gotten greedy -- where there were one or two subversive hits to an ad per web navigation,

Now there are probably hundreds.  I believe this has got to contribute to slow load times.

 

My two cents.

For now, I'll presume it is unsolvable until a patch comes out from Microsoft.

 

I just hope I'll be able to navigate to it by then...
