I didn't get the memo on dealing with Slickdeals re-directs, help please.

Some links don't work due to trackers I guess, such as <removed>

I can't see where these urls are being blocked in my pc. How can I find out?

Thanks for any help.

Can you show us a screenshot of what your seeing? I am not convinced you have a virus nor would I follow the link above. If you have an adblocker this can sometimes cause issues with the SD redirect.

Before the link was removed it linked to a OJRQ ads page, which is known malware that hijacks browsers and redirect you to them instead of your desired web location.

If adblock indeed caused issues with SD redirect in their case, I doubt it would redirect to an ad :p

Of course there's always the chance it's some other unknown cause, or maybe even adblock is going wonky and doing some weird stuff.
