    Whenever I go to to this forum my NOD32 antivirus warns of a java-script re-directer. Can anyone tell me why??

    It may be a false positive situation, whereby, the test result wrongly indicates the condition. See if NOD32 needs an update and if the warning goes away. I use Bitdefender myself and receive no such warnings. I used NOD32 many years ago; however, moved on as it was a bit of a resource hog.

    Also see if your web browser and java is up to date.

    Esset AV products (Eg. NOD32) usually report more false positives than; Avira (which I use & which gives me no similar warnings on VCA) or Bitdefender (which I used to use), both of which have free versions for personal use that are rated very high by independant AV test labs.
    Looking at one such AV test lab, I see that Esset reported four false positives of legitimate software as malware during a recent 2 month test: https://www.av-test.org/en/antiviru...mber-2017/eset-internet-security-11.0-174890/
    Bitdefender also reported four false positives during the same test period : https://www.av-test.org/en/antiviru...17/bitdefender-internet-security-22.0-174891/
    Avira during the same test period reported zero false positives : https://www.av-test.org/en/antiviru...ecember-2017/avira-antivirus-pro-15.0-174880/

    Tapatalk smart phone app, at a guess. Probably just simple if clause for mobile browser being picked up
