I think this topic has come up before but it has reared its head again as I have bought a new laptop.

Basically a link added to AUSLOT link - something like AU.URLM.com - takes you to another site saying it is speeding up access. All it does however is slow things down and introduce dirty and unwanted pictures.

I have got around this for Auslot by typing address in direct instead of using search engine but I have now found it attached to a local clubs link.

Can anybody advise how to get rid of this.

Regards Chas Le Breton

PS. If I excite and try again it goes straight to Auslot but happens each time I log on afresh.

This has been a problem for quite some time Charles.

It has progressed if using Chrome, see this link.


I am sure it is because of the "..slot.com" in the name and is being hijacked by phishing algorithms.

Why use a search engine Charles?

Just click on a link saved to favourites
Or better - for everyone - I have an HTML file which sits on my hard drive, and is my browser "home page' That file contains about 80 of my most commonly used links. This saves a lot of clicking on menus. I only ever need to open a new tab or click "home" in an existing ta, then click the link I want.

Hi Mark and Phil.

Fixed this problem a while ago. Bought a new laptop.

Thanks for advice. Know what to do if problem reoccurs.
