Please take a screenshot (Print Screen key), paste into Paint, save, and upload to http://imgur.com. Reply back with the link.

I know what Google Analytics is (I use it for a couple websites), but I'm not sure why you're seeing it in your browser. Is it set as a home page?

I need specific's but as stated googleanalytics.com is used to track visitors to various sites. Are you currently experiencing any malware related issues?

For instance this site uses Google Analytics.

<script type="text/javascript">

  var _gaq = _gaq || [];
  _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-91740-1']);
  _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']);

  (function() {
    var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true;
    ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js';
    var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);
  })();

</script>

You can download Firefox, and use the private browsing features.

If you use a credit card or smart phone you are tracked, if you visit places with cameras then you are tracked.

If you have sent things through the regular mail you are tracked.
