Good Morning All

I have recently been getting random words in text changing colour to green and being double-underlined also in green. Hovering the mouse over these words causes a small box to appear containing various topics,often related to Microsoft subjects.

At the bottom of the box is a Microsoft URL,whilst across the top shows "VibrantAd" next to a ?mark and the closure cross.

Is it possible to stop these green things appearing ?

OS Win XP Home SP3 : IE8 : Avast 4.8 : Zone Alarm free

Best regards

Roy

You might take a look at some of the threads at Google Search.
