    Default Virus/Malware problem?

    Something's going on with my computer. Whenever I move my mouse over a link, the address comes up as something random, and then when I click on it, instead of going to where it should go, it takes me to some random advertisement site. It doesn't matter what site I'm on, it happens on ESPN, Yahoo, and here. Anyone know what to do? I'm using a different computer right now to follow wrestling.

    Yeah, its definitely malware. The software searches the current page (google, yahoo, espn, etc) for phrases in their network. "Home Refinance" and all of the common penis enlargement ads will be candidates for the links (you have any in my posts yet? )

    I fixed it (somehow). I just googled stuff on a different computer, and then transcribed the URL's into this one. It was weird. Hopefully it is resolved! Thanks for the help, Schlottke, you are definitely the guy I would go to for the future.

    malwarebytes is another good one to remove crap that other stuff can't.
