While using safari it suddenly opeens different pages and sends me to the app store.

The past few days I have been having problems with using safari. While I am browsing pages, all of the sudden safari opens several pages really quick and then switches to the App Store to download an app. But I didn't click on anything that should activate that. Yesterday it was an casino game. Today a animal game and hayday. This is getting really annoying. I can't even use the internet normally anymore.. Is this some kind of virus? I thought iPad couldn't get any kind of virus..
Example of pages

Your iPad is as updated as it can be at 5.1.1. Your apps are crashing probably due to a lack of memory. Try keeping apps in the recents tray to a minimum. For starters close all apps completely, clear Safari and then reboot the iPad.
Go to the home screen first by tapping the home button. Double tap the home button and the task bar will appear with all of your recent/open apps displayed at the bottom. Tap and hold down on any app icon until it begins to wiggle. Tap the minus sign in the upper left corner of the app that you want to close. Tap the home button or anywhere above the task bar.
Go to Settings>Safari>Clear History, Cookies and Data. 
Reboot the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider - let go of the buttons.
See if this helps at all. If if does, remember to keep apps in the recents tray to a minimum. You shouldn't have to do that, but unfortunately, iOS 5.1.1 stretched the capability of the original iPad processor to its limits .... IMO!

  • HT201269 I thought I had a problem after my iPhone suddenly lost an app, I restored from a back up and am now missing some apps. They appear on my I tunes page and say 'open' in the app store, but aren't on the phone. Help,

    I was using my iPhone and 'lost' an app. I restored my phone from an earlier backup, but now can't see some of my apps. They are shown as being on the phone in both iTunes and the app store, but clearly aren't on the phone.
    Where have I gone wrong.

    FCPX crashed and I reported it here. Tom Wolsky suggested I trash prefs, perform an fsck, reboot and redownload FCPX from the App store. The reboot was okay but Safari will not let me access the App Store to redownload FCP. I'm running 10.6.8 but the App Store icon is grayed out. I get a "Safari doesn't recognize addresses starting with macappstore."
    How do I get to the App Store to get FCPX back? I'm using the Trial version now.

    How are you linking to the App Store from Safari? From this page?

    I tried the Aperature trial and liked it, but did not purchase it when the trial ended. A few weeks later, i purchased snow lepord and purchased aperture via the app store. I have had not been able to use it since. Each time i open it , afer a few seconds i get the spinning wheel of death and Aperture is frozen. I have to force quit Aperture to shot down mycomputer. I have re-installed Aperture 3 times with th e same result. I have iphoto on my computer as well is this causing the problem? I want my money back!!! Can anyone help?

    You need to delete the trial & then reinstall from the boxed DVD or the Mac App Store. The files to delete are the iWork ’09 folder from the main HD > Applications; the iWork ’09 folder in HD > Library > Application Support & the individual iWork application plist files found in HD > Users > (your account) > Library > Preferences for each user.
    Yvan Koenig has written an AppleScript that removes the files. You can find it on his box.com account in for_iWork'09 > other_iWork'09 items > uninstall iWork '09.zip.

  • How can I find what apple ID I used to register my iMac when I first booted up? I am being told that by using this ID I will be able to go on to the App store and down load iPhoto at no cost. Is this true? My iMac does not have iPhoto resident on it now

    How can I find what apple ID I used to register my iMac when I first booted up? I am being told that by using this ID I will be able to go on to the App store and down load iPhoto at no cost. Is this true? My iMac does not have iPhoto resident on it now and I only purchased my new iMac in December 2012
    Thanks....

    Launch Keychain Access and click on Login in the left hand pane and then on Passwords.  Next do search for Apple in the search field at the top and click on Apple ID Authenicication in the list that comes up.  That will give you the ID no. and password.

    No but there's a link to reset your password. Etc etc..
    This is the email I got.
    "Your Apple ID was just used to download Photoshop Touch for phone £2.99 from the App Store on a computer or device that had not previously been associated with that Apple ID.
    If you initiated this download, you can disregard this email. It was only sent to alert you in case you did not initiate the download yourself.
    If you did not initiate this download, we recommend that you go to iforgot.apple.com to change your password, then see Apple ID: Tips for protecting the security of your account for further assistance.

  • I have 2 macs, 2 iPhones and am looking to buy an iPad. If I buy an app like pages or angry birds from the app store, can I install it on all of them?

    I have 2 macs, 2 iPhones and am looking to buy an iPad. If I buy an app like pages or angry birds from the app store, can I install it on all of them? Is that legal to authorize all of those devices, I think I get up to 5, so that it would work?
    Thanks

    You can buy and install on all your IOS devices, and separately buy and install on all OSX devices, so 2 purchases.

  • I am purchasing a new 27" iMac. I want to continue using logic pro 9 on it but cannot download it from the app store. How do I put it on my new iMac?

    I have a imac 21.5 " computer in my studio and want the larger screen of the 27". After I purchase it how do I install logic pro 9 on it when the application is no longer available on the app store?

    You can transfer your software from your old computer to the new one by using Migration Assistant or read the alternative solutions by checking out Setting-up a new Mac from an old one, its Backups, or a PC. 
    If the above does not work out, read the response in this thread:  https://discussions.apple.com/message/23809547#23809547

  • Why does Apple now force users to provide 3 security questions or use their ridiculous two step verification in order to download from the App Store?

    This is a total pain in the ***.  I've been using ios products since the launch of the iPhone 4 and they've suddenly changed to this nonsense?   Why does Apple treat its users like they're 4 years old?

    Those things are nothing new.  People were doing that three years ago and Apple felt their security was sufficient then.   I don't have a credit card on file so I'm not worried about anyone getting my credit card info. 
    I have sent my feedback to Apple.   Their response included "this is policy. There is no way around the security measures."  and "I have provided Apple's answer. There is no further escalation point or anyone I can transfer you to that is going to provide a different answer at this time."

  • Safari is constantly redirecting me to either a **** page or the App store. Please help!

    I am having problems with Safari redirecting me to either a **** page or to the App store (when I go back to the browser the following url is in the address bar: c.mobpartner.mobi./?s=511297. The **** pages change every couple of days)
    This only happens from www.guardian.co.uk (so far). It started a week ago. It happens automatically – I don’t touch the screen or click on adverts. It happens every time I go the site, and at any time of day.  I am running IoS 6.1.3. JavaScript is on. The pop-up blocker is on. I have cleared the cookies and the history. I have been to Settings>Safari>Advanced>Website Data and cleared that. I still get the redirects. What can I do now?
    (with apologies if the answer is already on the forum and I was using the wrong search terms)

    I have the same issue, iPad 2, latest ios etc etc. Doesn't happen on MacBook or my wife's PC or iPhone just iPad.
    it can't be the site as it happens mainly on Sky Sports and even happened on the BBC website (they don't run ads).
    I get either App Store or **** surely corporations of this size wouldn't have an issue that only affected iPads and I highly doubt the BBC has be hijacked, have all these sites been hit all at once??
    changing DNS is not an option, this shouldn't be happening it is all over different forums, help please....
    1) it sounds like the exact same problem. the hijack is specific by browser type, and some people have reported that it seems to be random, although what i experienced with my iphone was that i was hijacked each time, but the destination page seemed randomized (but always adult content, and probably related companies).
    2) "it can't be the site"?  why not?  it absolutely was on the hosted site that first hijacked my iphone. (owner of the site contacted the hosting provider and they took down the problem within the hour.)  the interesting aspect of this hack is that they're only hijacking some clients, based on type - by NOT hijacking desktops, for instance, they're staying "under the radar" of most web spiders and security programmes.  most support people will pull up the site on their desktop and convince themselves that there's no problem.
    3) why is changing dns not an option?  it's quick and easy, and affects pretty much nothing on your ipad, except filtering out the offensive adult content.  it's not a fix, but it makes the effects of the hijack less graphic.
    and by the way, it's not coming from ads.  the hijack is happening on the mobile server, which many sites use to convert their content for mobile devices.  the adult content site would be stupid to run ads (and establish a business connection) with a site they were going to hijack - that would be like writing a ransom note on the back of your own business card! 
    and it's NOT the app store!!!  it's a web page that only looks like the app store, to fool people.  if you read the address in the toolbar, you'll see that it's not related to apple at all.
