    There is some websites that IE7 will go to for an instant and then will go to:

    http://www.google.com/hws/gateway/afe?hl=en&s=http://ad.yieldmanager.com/st?ad_type&rdr=afe

    and show: "Sorry, we couldn't find http://ad.yieldmanager.com/st%3Fad_type[/url]. Here are some related websites:" The sites listed are not related at all

    For some reason IE will not stay on certain sites.
    Firefox and Opera have no problem with them.

    Here is one example: http://www.usmonolith.com
    "http://ad.yieldmanager.com/st%3Fad_type" is not the site that it is suppose to find when I type in the above url.

    There is more but I don't remember what they are now.

    Any ideas on what causes this problem?

    Not sure, I have a GM5420 and it works fine on mine. It looks like its a pop up failsafe action. ad.yield manager is the company that puts some of the ads on a page (in usmonolith, thier ad is at the bottom).

    Are pup up ads disabled in IE7? Its probably some such setting, for some reason the ad is triggering the redirect to yeildmanager which it shouldn't do of course and then the default page not found in this case is the gateway page.

    All I can do is follow the bread crumbs though, I'm not familiar enough with it to know exactly what's going on.

    Thanks for your reply.

    I just tried it with the popup blocker turned off and it still does the same thing.

    I have solved the redirecting problem with IE7.

    I went to tools, manage add-ons, enable or disable add-ons and disabled several of the add-ons listed there. I don't know which one of them was causing the problem but I have not seen any unwanted side effects from disabling them.

    Can you provide a list of these "Add-ons"?

    Dave, there is a lot of add-ons listed and I do not remember exactly which ones I disabled but I went back and enabled two at a time and did a check after each two to recreate the problem.

    I have now enabled all of the add-ons and the problem has not returned. One of them must of needed to be reset or something. I can't explain what fixed it.

    This problem had been going on for several days, so I know that it was not something that a reboot would fix. I turn the computer off every night.

    Sometimes a swift kick in the old behind works.
    Glad to see that it is working.
