    yes - some kind of malware. Have you intentionally installed anything new lately? If it was something you picked up online, might want to uninstall it and see if it goes away. I doubt anything you bought in a store would cause the hyperlink effect. Otherwise, if you didn't install anything intentionally, might want to update the definitions on your favourite malware scanner and run a full scan with it.

    Hey 47, set aside about an hour or two and run ESet online scanner. Should get rid of whatever you got that's doing that.

    Are you still having this problem? It looks like this "Powered by Text-Enhance" is a browser extension which installs itself without your consent. Like others have said, it's malware, and can be removed by uninstalling the extension, if the malware scanners haven't already taken care of it.

    I ran a scan with Superantispyware and it didn't detect/remove it. It's on my home laptop, so I'll try LL's idea and a few other things this weekend.

    Would this have installed itself in my regular Add'Remove programs list. At least I know how to use that.

    OK, I installed Mozilla No Script and Adblock plus last night, and it seems to have taken care of the problem. Thanks for the advice linker buds.
