    I have words with double underlines and then ads pop up when you scroll on them

    I thought is was Techimo doing some add work, but it in other places so it's coming from my computer.

    Any ideas where I start looking to get rid of it?

    Example: insurance

    In my computer this will be double green underlined, as is the word "work" in line one.

    I think I found it. My wife got something called Gamevance to go along with her Farmville, and other Facebook things.

    I uninstalled it, and it's gone...

    Until she gets suckered into reinstalling it...

    Thanks

    Or buy her a cheap laptop for internet use. Or create another account on the computer for her with minimum access. Then just zap that account when she gets it fubar'd.

    Or just block Fakebook (et al) so that she can't get to it...

    (just be ready for the ear-ache you'll undoubtedly get if you do... )
    I've seen the light... It was green, flashy and attached to a Network Interface Card...
