It was there until 10 seconds ago when I went in and told it to remove the hyperlink. Interestingly, I've just noticed that in my previous post in this thread, it has turned the word eBay into a hyperlink.
It's not just me it's happening to now. I noticed the same issue with another thread earlier but I forgot to copy the link, but I've just found this one: http://www.usingenglish.com/forum/as...ing-isn-t.html
In the first post, the word "scuffle" has become a hyperlink to a Russian site. I don't think the OP did it.
And another. The words "yellow cab" are a hyperlink in the first post here: http://www.usingenglish.com/forum/as...unge-mean.html and take you to Amazon to a page selling "Yellow Cab boots!"
Please tell me I'm not the only one seeing these hyperlinks!
Oh bum! I guess it's just me. What a weird glitch!
It's a virus or infection. Do a boot scan and see if that fixes it.
Yup, like I said, I've had it before. I get a double-underline in green (I htink it was green) and it was almost always to Amazon. Spybot is your friend. Free and good.
Nothing shows up on any scan for malware, adware, bots etc. I don't get the green double underline although I have seen that in the past I think. This is just a bog-standard hyperlink - the words appear in blue and are clickable. They link to a whole variety of sites - Wikipedia, Amazon, eBay etc.
Ah well, doesn't matter. I have no intention of clicking on them and if no-one else can see them, that's fine.
I had an infection a few years ago and used HijackThis and the people at this forum: Computer Help - Malwarebytes Forum
