Unknown pest has invaded my Yahoo email

  1. All of a sudden, when I type an email and try to use a contraction, as soon as I type the apostrophe the typing stops, an additional bar opens just below the email with a little box in it that shows the apostrophe and anything I type immediately after it, and to the right of that a red box opens with a small I inside a blue circle and it says "link not found" and won't let me type anything more. To the left of the box it says "Quick Find (links only)" That doesn't appear or happen if I don't type any apostrophe's.

    What in the world is it, where did it come from, what is it part of, and how do I get rid of it? I've clicked on the little "i" but the whole thing just goes away.

    I've scanned my computer with Avira and a couple anti-malware's but no problem.
    This only happens when I'm composing an email in Yahoo.
    I've got a desktop and laptop with identical setups - incl Yahoo - and only the desktop has started doing that.

    Thanks!
