I think they had some problem with their server(s). It is working fine now.

Oh forgot to tell, this is the only link I have discovered sofar that is doing this on my system. And ofcourse I checked for infections with Avast :D , housecall, checked for spy/addware with add-aware and Spybot S&D and I run TheCleaner. Just to be sure it is not an error here.

Here is some additional information. I had this link tested by about 7 other people using Opera. Looks like it has to do with the way Opera handles java or javascript. Disabling it in the preferences brings people to http://www.avast.com/forum/ when it is enabled they have the same thing as I have. We checked with several other browsers, Netscape, IE, Mozilla, MozillaFirebird and sofar the problem did not appear. We gonna try some other things/settings and will post it here if we come along some more information that might be usefull.

Ok, here is a part of my irc log file about a reaction I got when I asked them to try opera and the link:

[11:17] <Corydon> Artras Yabb site, but I have javascript, java, user agent, referrer all disabled
[11:18] <Artras> Corydon > strange thing it sometimes works, and sometimes it is showing a sponsored advertising/search page
[11:18] <Corydon> Artras if I enable js, referrer, and agent, it brings me to http://www.avast.com/forum/
[11:18] <Corydon> Artras actually it doesn't bring me to http://www.avast.com/forum/, it just closes the page that was supposed to open
[11:19] <Corydon> Artras if I enable js and referrer, while blocking agent--it brings me to the correct yabbse page

Clciking on the bottum link on the page I (see picture in previous msg) takes me to this site: http://www.zoneedit.com/lameinfo.html?zone=yabb.info I sure hope not too many people have the same thing going on. It's not nice for Avast and Yabb, which I think are very respectable companies.

Avast has nothing to do with this - we only use YABB SE forum software, we are not responsible for any DNS problems of third party companies. I check the template of this forum but the link is hardcoded and can not be changed. There is not much we can do about this!

BTW: It still works without problems from my side!
