Underline and links in text
A few of my members are getting (seeing?) underlinings and links in there posts. But... most of us are not seeing the same thing. Here's a cut and paste from my message board help forum.

_________________________________________
Board admin - why are some of our words underlined in posts today, as if there's a link, i.e. the word <A TITLE="Click for more information about <A TITLE="Click for more information about job" STYLE="text-decoration: none; border-bottom: medium solid green;" HREF="http://search.targetwords.com/u.search?x=5977|1||||job|AA1VDw">job</A>" STYLE="text-decoration: none; border-bottom: medium solid green;" HREF="http://search.targetwords.com/u.search?x=5977|1||||job|AA1VDw">job</A> in my title?)

Look at that!!! Do we have some kind of virus..?
_____________________________________________

It seems that since it is very user specific that it's probably an ISP or Browser setting. At least that's what I would guess.

Have you all seen this before? Any ideas?

Re: Underline and links in text
One of my members had a similiar problem, certain words within the news fader were showing up as links for them.

It's a form of spyware which reads the words of the webpage you're visiting and inserts links for any keywords that it recognizes

Spybot - Search & Destroy and Ad-aware are both free. Those should help clean up the spyware.

Hope that helps :smile:

You're right on the nose greenfigi. :wink: I would advise them to get either of those programs greenfigi mentioned above and running it at least once a week. That way they can clear out anything new that they picked up without realizing it off other sites. :smile:
