A friend sees a link in the words "new home" here click here which is not there (I maintain the site and have checked the code). The link is double underlined and if he clicks the link he gets:
"We're Sorry...

Does he have a virus or something? Thanks.

He might have a form of adware that searches for key words and turns them into links on his PC.

Get him to run an anti spyware app like AdAware click here and see what comes up.

Thanks - my immediate suspicion was spyware or adware. I'll tell him.
