    Remove web page adverts

    I'm sure they didnt used to be there but I have words in posts highlighted with with hyperlinks that when hovered over show a windowed advert (ads by Powerlink), can I get rid of these as they are irritating me! I've downloaded something I presume as I'm sure Edugeek didnt have any before or is it I have just not noticed theme before?

    I had something similar last week on an old machine that I don’t use much, and had not been patched. So I don’t know if it was a virus, or something that snuck in on an installer.
    In any case go to your uninstall programs and sort by date. You should find the culprit then.
    Good luck.

    Check in another browser. If only present in one, disable all add-on. Restart PC in safe mode.

    As long as the site is not pushing them, one of the three should fix it, and then you can work backwards from there.
