Unwanted adwords in text.

I have found that when some people have looked at my website that there are adword links embedded in some of my text. This is not something that I did, nor did I want to do. Is there anything that I can do to stop this or is it something that is allowed from the viewer's computer? The adwords do not show up when I view the site from my computers.

Hello Belle,

This is something reported on occasions. It is almost certainly due to something a user has downloaded onto their computer and most commonly a toolbar. The text enhancement is a free rider. It can be removed by removing the downloaded facility. It's also best to run an adware scanner through to search and remove.
