Look. Is anyone else getting this while surfing?

If you're typing in something really long, or if you're reading a post, if not here, then somewhere else...or on any info that certain words like 'car' or 'money' or 'single' are underlined in like orange and if you hover over it a box comes up advertising?

Small box like.


anyone else?

what is this? something new???????

Sounds like some software called Top Text. Some ad stuff...we had it once. If you go to your Add/Remove Programs, it should be listed, and you can remove it.

That's interesting actually. I just started seeing that on another forum I go to, but it's only in certain people's threads.

I checked my computer and I dont that that program installed, do you think that means that those people posting have that program on theirs? Maybe I just have a similar program with a diff. name, I dont know. I only see it on that one site.
