I just noticed that some message board forums I visit now have text in posted topics featuring random words double underlined and when I scroll over the double underlined word a hyperlink and image for an ad appears. When I googled "double underlined words in chrome" instead of giving me results my browser asked "to continue please type the characters below," because apparently "systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. This page checks to see if it's really you sending the requests, and not a robot."


Firefox seems to be unaffected, only Google Chrome.


I ran a malwarebytes test and nothing showed up. Can anyone help me get rid of this adware/malware? If so, it would be very much appreciated, thanks.
