Certain words are underlined in a green/yellow. When I hold my curser over top of it a small add appears. Must be some garbage spyware that leaked onto my system. Might be a result of that PC Power scan crap, who knows.

Yup, it’s called scumware. The worst kind of spyware.

The really shitty thing is that it is probably replacing legitimate ads on websites that you visit. If you buy anything online through an affiliate link, the spyware company gets the commission too, stealing it from the person whose link you actually followed.

So somehow this stuff got on your computer. Time to run ad-aware!

check scumware.com

But yeah, update ad-aware and run that.
