    Ok, I'm TOTALLY freaking out here.

    Strange links, all of a sudden are appearing IN my blog content. (See below.)
    On THIS page, the words "phone" and "windows" are linked to somebody's ads.

    On THIS page, the words "start" and "cheap camera" are linked to somebody's ads. (see below)

    Can somebody help..fast?

    Thank you SO much!

    You may just have some spyware on your computer or a specific browser. Try switching browsers/ machines.

    I just tried a different browser and it's all still there.

    So, I'm going to try my desktop computer.

    @kabbo21, that's a completely different question. Out of courtesy, always create your own thread regarding your own issues.

    I just went on my OTHER computer (it's a desktop) and those links are NOT there..just like on your computer.

    Something else I noticed, is that on BOTH my computers, the posting TITLE color is wrong too. It's supposed to be a dark blue, but it's a light blue. kind of weird.

    ANYways. So knowing all that, what do you think is the problem? And what do I need to do do solve this?

    I HAVE already started running my spybot on my laptop (the "infected" computer). Is that going to help?

    What do you suggest?

    Thanks so much for your help!

    I HAVE already started running my spybot on my laptop (the "infected" computer). Is that going to help?

    Yes, but the issue no longer resides with WordPress, so I don't think these forums can support that issue.

    Something else I noticed, is that on BOTH my computers, the posting TITLE color is wrong too. It's supposed to be a dark blue, but it's a light blue. kind of weird.

    Which browser and browser version does the correct and incorrect blue colour occur in?

    Now, the Internet Explorer browser IS displaying the dark font correctly now.

    But the Firefox (which is the one I always use) is still displaying the font as light blue, and the version is 19.0.

    I used Spybot, but those weird links are still there. Are you sure there is nothing I can check in my files, to see where these links are coming from?

    I've had so many problems with this site, if I can't get rid of these site, I'm just going to shut down my website and forget all of this. It's getting way too frustrating. I've had all kinds of issues with my site for like a week now and I've basically had no life. I had no idea a blog site was supposed to take every minute of my days, like it has.

    Any suggestions? Aren't there any files I can check for weird stuff to find out where these links are coming from?

    Thanks!

    I cannot see any such links on your site. One or more of your computers are infected. as this isn't really a WordPress issue, try asking for help on forums dedicated to removing adware.

    You can try using ccleaner, which is what I use to perform quick PC clean ups.

    I FOUND the problem! I did a LOT of searching online and I found a cure for getting rid of the "text enhance" which is what it's called.

    I deleted some Adobe programs. I can't remember which ones, right now as it was real late at night..LOL. But I THINK it was flash and/or shockwave.

    Just for anyone's information I DID download AdBlock Plus which worked great getting rid of those bad links, but for my web site, I have affiliate ads that I WANT to show. When I ran the Adblock Plus, it worked TOO good and wouldn't let my GOOD ads show.

    So, after I deleted those Adobe programs, BOTH my browsers (Firefox and Internet Explorer) were clean again! :) Hopes that helps anyone else having that problem.

    Thanks!
