    For the last few days, something has been changing/diverting this website to another website. Ie it is not a pop up or another page. It is shutting down this site and changing to another. I wasn't actually browsing the site, but had a tab left open. I haven't had time to see what page it is as it is accompanied with a loud tone/noise, so the whole browser/page is closed asap etc.

    I will try to find out where it is being diverted/hijacked to, but i need to turn down my speakers etc.

    This sounds like a browser hijacker. Run a virus scan to clean it. If you can see the redirect URL, google it. You are likely to get a result on exactly how to remove it via a site like bleepingcomputer.

    Sounds like you are being redirected maybe a BHO ( Browser Helper Object). Have you deleted your temp files? tried your browser in safe mode?

    Like TCIB says, its malware / virus on your PC, nowt to do with the BM site. Do a virus scan and try to stick to more reputable porn sites in the future...;)

    Maybe, but it is only doing on the Bluemoon site. I have 9 tabs at start up and only BM is doing this.

    Ok, just to make sure, i've downloaded different anti-virus software and did a full scan.
    I also ran the latest ADWcleaner to check for browser malware.
    In both cases zero threats found...

    I was under the impression "Midget Porn" sites don't contain viruses? Well you learn something new every day!

    I've used MS Defender, Malwarebytes, Adwcleaner and Hitman after running a full CCleaner session before and after issues on here. Besides the expected (and accepted) tracking cookies my system is totally clean. That (attempted) redirect came from Bluemoon bud.
