    Re: Following up on Haile's post....

    Not sure that's what they're called. The words that have ads linked to them. They show up looking like a link. Y'know like working.

    Maybe it has something to do with Chrome or my settings somewhere within. If someone knows, I'd sure like to get rid of that particular little feature.

    And..... you smell funny. There you have the tame version.

    You have a virus. That happened to me a while back. If you don't have it already, download and install 'Spy-bot Search & Destroy' and then run it. Clean everything it tells you to, and that should go away.

    I'll try that. I have Spybot but not sure that it is on auto-pilot. I'll let you know.

    Well... THAT didn't work. And it does somehow seem to be associated with Chrome. Next?

    If it's only in Chrome, go to options > extensions > and remove the extensions you don't recognize. Some of the extensions associated with that problem are 'I want this', or extensions that have WX or MX in the title, or 'Text Enhance', or any toolbars that you don't use.

    Apparently it is a frickin' Facebook related extension. Keeping my fingers crossed but I only had an Avast extension and a "Facetheme" extension showing. I disabled the facetheme extension and so far I don't see any of those linked words. Thanks man.
