Hi!
I seem to be having an issue with in text ads on my computer. There are in text ads on every web page I look at. I started to notice them within my email box which is a GoDaddy account under my business email. Then I noticed them on my own website and I don't have in text ads on my website. They are everywhere. I even see them in this forum on every page I've looked at.

What I am seeing is a word or phrase that has the double lines under it and when you hover your mouse over it, an ad pops up. When I went on another computer in our house they did not show up. I checked my email and my website and didn't see them, so it's got to be something on my computer.

My computer is running on Windows Vista.

I have run Malwarbytes (twice), AdAware, Avira, Spybot, and Super AntiSpyware. The ads are still there.

Would someone be able to help me, please? I would appreciate it!

Thank you!

Wendi

One more thing - they show up using both Chrome and Firefox.

Welcome aboard Posted Image

What you're seeing is so called intellitxt.

You should install some kind of adblocker in your browser and it should take care of it.
