I'm just new to this web site and was wondering if anyone has run across an issue with there P.C. when browsing the internet using IE, some hyper-text words will direct you to "bogus" sites, such as text enhance bringing you to advertisements for free government grants?

Thanks for responding

Hi PepsiJunky..Welcome to Bleeping Computer

Are these popups or embedded ads on websites..Do you have to click on them or do they take you to 'bogus' sites without clicking them?

If you think you may be infected I would suggest posting in the Am I infected? What do I do? forum..Please read Before You Post About A Problem Some simple guidelines before posting.

Hi Pauline;

Thanks for the response. You have to actually click on the highlighted hyper text word to go to the site. The problem is, it has nothing ro do with the actual web site your on.

I'll take your advice and post in the proper section.

Thanks, KK
