Got a problem and need help!
I've noticed over the last few days that certain words on my website have been highlighted. When the cursor touches a highlighted word an add springs into life. Now I sent those responsible an email saying please take your advertisements off my site, I NEVER gave permission. Take it off or I will take it further. Their response came immediately. What happened next was down right nasty, because the next word they highlighted was (TRY).
How can I rid this annoying highjacker. Any ideas please!!!!

Hi Wayne,

Aweful stuff.

Sounds as if you have some uninvited software on your computer. Probably worth running a spyware checker through and your virus checker. This has happened similarly relatively recently with some kind of toolbar someone installed.

I hope you can get rid of this easily and permanently.

Hi Wayne

I moused over the text on your website and didn't find any unexpectedly hyperlinked words. If you are unable to solve the problem by running an anti-virus program, please point out a couple of examples so that we can take a look.
