I have not had this before, but when I go to most web pages I see that some of the text is blue and if you hover near the text some advertising appears such as Info Atoms, www.uncover.com etc. I have not had this before.

Any way of getting rid of this annoyance?

Thanks

I discovered that this was actually a program which somehow installed itself on my computer. I wish that I could remember the exact name of it, but I think it was InfoAtoms.com.

After I used revo uninstaller to get rid of it I have not had any problems.

Thanks
