    There is advertising in the header of each page. Have been reading for an hour on what to do. At this point I'm overwhelmed. Changed passwords on host site and here. Now what? http://www.johnbarclayphotography.com is the site. Would appreciate any help you'd care to share.

    It seem like your website has been hijack with an XSS attack and injected with a piece of advertisement which mean no harm except annoyance. Check your theme code at the header and most likely you have to manually remove it.

    Your site is clean of malwares scan here & there.
