The auction is one that hasn't started yet. It was a couple of weeks ago and to be honest I forget which video upload site I was using (I tried several). I had the URL stored in my favourites and it worked fine. When I used the same link on the auction however instead of going to that URL I immediately found myself at one particular music site. The URL in the address bar had completely changed from my link. I double checked everything but it continued until I got fed up with it, removed the link and settled with Google video. I don't think it is adware as in my experience that opens up a new window which you can simply close. It's not huge problem or anything but I just wondered what was going on. BTW I have never had trouble with links on scheduled auctions before.
If there is an error in the link, or you mistype something, sometimes you can end up at a site which owns that URL. If that particular URL is not in use, they'll sometimes send you to another URL they own which *is* in use.
