Hello all, can someone give me a hand here?


I've got an issue with web browsers that cropped up about a day or two ago. Something seems to be disabling my ability to interact with websites inside of my browser by overlaying an image ("transparent.gif") over the entire site and having it redirect me to a new tab, which in term runs the code: "data:text/html,<script>window.close()</script>" which, as it clearly reads, closes the new tab. I've tried inspect element on the website before and after the effect takes place and I see that it injects it with a new <div> code, with urls to some website ("http://rdsrv.com/newbidder/click.php?subid=239dd8fKLYF6b18AgUdrAQrgA0MDUyNTQzNDE5ICAgICAgICAgICAgICAgICAgICB56YY%5F%2DZc%5FAQEAAAAAAFTvXQEAIgABAAAAAgABAAAACQABAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANWGWVUAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACXU%5FVSZW5UWAEA&redir=aHR0cDovL25ldHdvcmsuYWRzbWFya2V0LmNvbS9jbGljay9pMkZ5bVdYS2ZKMklaSExFWHNwNnc0cG9jSnBtb242WHQyaHFsbWVqZmNPSlpuS2NZNTZwbFlwbmFaeG5uZz9kcD0kUEFSQU0k&subid2=afeaaHR0cDovL3d3dy5ibGVlcGluZ2NvbXB1dGVyLmNvbS9mb3J1bS1ydWxlcy8%7E&cost=0") and then a link to where the transparent.gif is hosted. I apologize for the sudden change in font and size, when I pasted that link it changed it, and when I tried to edit it back I clicked and it locked me out. :/


It does this in Chrome, Firefox, and IE, which leads me to believe that it's not software related, but I don't recall downloading or installing anything within the past 3-4 days, and that's when it appeared.


Any help is much appreciated!
