Hello Karl,

Do you know if this annoyance is appearing on other computers or have you only seen it on your pc? (Typically it highlights various words and displays an ad associated with the word.)

The reason is that this nasty is hidden in a toolbar download and it only affects the computers that have downloaded the toolbar and other viewers are not exposed to it.

If this is the case then the easiest way is to uninstall that download and if that isn't easily identifiable then a malware/spyware scan will most probably find it and quarantine it. Then just delete the quarantined file.
