Home Page Hijacked?

Postby Mark H » Sun Feb 15, 2004 5:40 pm

When I try to get to the home page, This pops up: "Congratulations, Welcome to your new website" Powered by Ensim, with this link: http://plain.rackshack.net/

of course the link goes nowhere.....

Only way to get to the forums, and so far the forums are ALL I can access, is to type the web address in the search bar (www.motherboards.org/forums)

Edit Also noticed, that page pops up if i click the motherboards.org link at the top of the forum page

are you still have this problem. Clear your cache and close browser then try again if you are.

This happened only for a short period of time as the new drive was being brought online.

Still having the problem, but I now believe it is browser related. Using IE 6, I have no problem, when I try to access the site via AOL, the problem shows up. I have cleared my browser cache, cleared temp files, and cookies, cleared AOL art files.

Perhaps this needs to be in Tech, or General Forum......

Maybe so, Toby, but it has worked for a few years with no problems. No problem getting to the forums, just the main page.
