I've had a subscription to the online version of USA Today since 2012 and rarely had a problem viewing it. A few days ago, I began having a problem. I can login OK, but the newspaper won't display. This happens on 2 PCs, one desktop, the other a laptop. Both PCs run Win7 Pro SP1 x64. The problem also happens using both IE and FF.
Normally, I run the MVPS hosts file on both PCs. Because I had updated the hosts file a few days ago as well, I decided to put back the default MS (blank) hosts file to see if perhaps the new hosts file was blocking something USA Today needed. With the default MS hosts file, I got a different result as shown in the screen shot below:
That prompt at the bottom took me by surprise so I Googled it. I got many hits for "load.js from loadm.exelator.com" described as a Redirect Virus. I'm assuming the one I'm receiving is related. I clicked on cancel. The USA Today newspaper still did not display.
Any idea where this file is coming from?
Any ideas why I can no longer view the USA Today online?
I run Norton Security on both PCs. I've received no Norton warnings about any virus. I also ran full scans with Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware on both PCs and they were clean.
