A company "uptodatecontent.net" has high-jacked my web searches and documents. It hyperlinks words with a "double line" that when pointed on displays and ad and a link to another website. I've never experienced this before and I don't know what to do. Can anyone help?

Hello -

 

Are the double-underlined words that you are referring to like the example provided in This topic (Post #1)?

 If so, this is called In-text advertising and it is very common.

Kontera and Vibrant are two of the more popular advertising networks that provide in-text advertising and information services.

 

======= < This is a typical example (without the pop up)
