Few months ago i started having double underline advertisements on random words on any and every web page stated as powered by greatarcadehits.


I have Windows 7 Home.

My browser of choice is Chrome, and appears that only chrome is having the issue.

I have opened Firefox and Internet Explorer and neither of them have the advertisements showing up.

I have also tested Chrome in incognito mode and again the issue did not show.


I have Norton Internet Security, and ran scanners from it.

I tried clearing the whole browsing history in Chrome, everything from forever.


Thanks for your time.
