Hello,

I got desperate today when trying to get some graphics done for my website. I downloaded a free website graphic software. I have downloaded other things before without a problem. Well, I think this time this particular one added several things to my computer...one being the Weather Bug, another being Search Here and who knows what else. I finally figured out how to get rid of search here....it puts itself under a different name in the program file to be tricky. I must have something that is causing unwanted hyerlinks to show up on our websites. For example, there will be a phrase within the text on our site that is now underlined. If you hover over it there is a ad that comes up that you can click on. The underline does not show up until a few seconds after the website is up. What is this and how do I get rid of it?

I did uninstall the software that I downloaded. When I go to uninstall the Weather Bug it my computer protector prompts me that an unidentified progra wants to access my computer. I am afraid to go through with it. When I uninstall other things that prompt does not come up.

Please let me know as soon as you can. Thank you.

I got it figured out. I downloaded ADWcleaner and it took care of the problem. Thank goodness! Thanks just the same.
