Hi, laptop has been showing up blue double underlined highlighted words and when the mouse pointer rolls over them, they pop up with adverts, it's also taking 3 or 4 clicks of the mouse button before it does anything, and generally started running very slowly, i've scanned it with McAfee, Malwarebytes and Spybot S&D, and they have found nothing that's resolved the issue,

The laptop is only 4 months old and it's seriously annoying when trying to use it now,

Iuse Chrome as my default browser, but these issues are happening in IE and FF too,

Any assistance in helping with these issues would be greatfuly appreciated,

the laptop is an ACER Aspire 5750 running Win 7 home premium.
