URL redirection problem?

I have DVDTalk bookmarked. When I open it from the bookmark, this happens:


Note the funky URL in the status bar.
If I click 'yes', I get taken to this URL:

Is this a problem on my machine (adware or malware) or a mistake on the DVDtalk servers?

Try this:

First, verify that the URL you're bookmarking is

Second, check your HOSTS file to make sure no programs have 'false' entries for

Third, use programs like Ad Aware and Spybot to clear out any spyware lingering on your machine.

Since it looks like it's loading, which is spyware related (the hostname takes you to a page where Commission Junction/ insists that they're legit, which we all know is bullshit), so that would be my guess.
