    In, what seems to be random posts, certain key words seem to be automatically hyperlinked to other sites... Money, diet and love are the first three words i've seen like this... They just seem to lead to pop-up ad type sites... Is is just the machine i'm using or is there a bug in the software or...? Just wondering, it seems a little weird...

    You have a robot or something like that on your computer. There is some software that others can recomend that will clear them out. You might try clearing out your cookies too.

    Do a Chat search for Ad-Aware and Spybot. This has come up in at least 3 other threads.

    Nice memory Mark!:)
    Just as you can see I have run a couple of these programs and they have made a big improvement. I run them about once a week, but I still experience a few annoying ads from time to time.

    Good luck Carbon and whoever else is being bombarded by these things.
