Over the past week my PC is different! Though I've not downloaded anything i'm getting adverts on words,
This is all over the net from Ebay to this forum! I've ran several scans and checked for viruses but is no good.

Words like 'Current Bid' on ebay the word 'Current' is in a colour orange and you can click on it to open the below link
https://besttimeforchange.com/??=Specia ... kw=Current

Or like... Time left: (04 Sep, 201220:36:26 BST). The word 'Sep' is in orange and you can click to open this link.....
http://www.internetcorkboard.com/search.php?q=sep

Even on this post I'm putting up, one word which is 'click' have typed is in orange too and brings this up...
https://besttimeforchange.com/??=Specia ... 3&kw=Click

''How on earth do i stop all this crap from happening on my PC''
:twisted: :?: :?: :?: :?:

There must be some change to your Software, either spyware or a toolbar that installed itself in your browser. What browser are you using?

Right ...


Click the "wrench" icon on the far right of the URL bar and select "settings"
In the menu on the left, click "Extensions".
Disable any extensions you don't normally use.
Close the browser, reopen it and see if that improved things

If that doesn't solve it, it's time for a better antivirus and anti spyware check.

Yo Mr Raging_Bulls :shock:

''Stop your grinning and drop your linen'' ...you've cured it :D

The only thing I can think of those extentions is that my Son has been messing with the PC.

Thanks again.
Ian.

Have a look in the history too, you'll probably find the bongo that caused the problem in the first place....
