Re: Internet Forum. Google adword costs thread.

Clicking on the above triggers a warning from AVG of a phishing attack.
It also appears to open a window from Microsoft warning that my PC has four viruses.
Pretty sure that it isn't genuine so avoided the 'Proceed' button.
I'll do an AVG scan in a few minutes to see what else might be lurking within.

ETA: AVG and Malwarebytes scans completed and nothing found.

When I click on the gurgle adturds thread I get diverted to a site which says maybe the site is down, or maybe my adblocker is interfering with connecting to the site.
But I can click on and go to any other thread, it seems ....

Yep, that's about what I get.
However, using my iPhone I can read the offending post in the thread which has a link.
Clicking on that takes me to a site which offers to manage ads on Facebook, supposedly.
Not quoting the site address for obvious reasons.
