  1. First off, Sorry if this is the wrong forum new here :(.



    Anyway, recently when I go to diffrent pages, certain words get underlined and are green, and are turned into links, when I put my cursor over it it says "best <and then whatever the word is>". Then I look down to the bottom left it says Sponsored Links. I tried to search on here, but I have no idea what really to look for, anyone know if there is a way to get rid of this spyware im guess it is. It irrates me to no end, makes every page load extremly slow.

    Thanks in advance, sorry if there is a thread already on this.

    Nate.


    Edit*.

    Forgot to add, I keep geting a folder in favorits that is titles 1111, and the file inside goes to yahoo.com. Not sure what the heck that is.

    Congratulations, you've discovered intellitxt.

    I block it with Adblock extension in Firefox and Mozilla by adding *intellitxt* to the filter.
