    I think this is an Adware question...

    My top bane of the internet are sites that appear on Google/Yahoo searches, and the instant you click on them they re-direct you to another site (usually a 'hostage' site, or one armed with a popup-style forced downloader). if anyone knows of any sort of defense against sites using redirection...or at least an escape from 'hostage' sites, or forced downloader sites (other than re-booting), please advise. Thanks.
