excuse the novice quesion:
i have a small wordpress site up, hosted by somebody else. Recently i tried to configure a plug-in off of the admin page and my browser ended up attempting to go to checkprivacy.ru ... i have discovered thru trial and error that once this happens, most functions dealing with plugins will try to redirect like this. A clean restart of IE8 will bring back the functionality however very frequently i find that this reoccurs. I have used a different pc however it happens on that one as well. one of the most consistant ways to trigger it is to attempt an install of another plug-in, it prompts "do you want to install" then the redirection occurs. Am I out of luck?
