    Is it possible for you to give us the URL to your blog so we can help out further.

    Do these links appear to be spam links? Have you installed any plugins lately which may create these links?

    I think it is probably caused by you using a 'free' theme from a dodgy source.

    there are a lot of good themes in the themes area here at http://wordpress.org/extend/

    commercially supported GPL themes http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/commercial/ many of the commercial theme providers have a few free themes available.

    Thanks I'll check it out.

    My theme was one I found through wordpress, but will will look for something else, hopefully that will fix my problem!!!

    Thanks again.

    If the theme came from the wordpress.org repository, my earlier suggestion was probably incorrect and the links are likely to be inserted by other means.

    My view that you had not obtained the theme from there was due to the theme containing more than one theme credit link in the footer - which I believe is against the rules of inclusion there and in my opinion make it look spammy.
